We have shared intense moments on the set these three years! When I first heard he was accepting the job on Shades of Blue, I was thrilled, and the first time we walked on set to do our first scene together, there was an electric spark. and mutual respect and we both knew it was going to be good.”

We lost a big one today… RIP RAY… it’s so sad to lose you which seems way too soon… I will always remember you. I send so much love and strength to your daughter Karsen, your family and all your loved ones.
