Ray Lovelock (born 19 June 1950, Rome, Italy), is a film and television actor primarily known in Europe.


Early life

Lovelock's mother was Italian and his father was English. They met during the Allied occupation of Italy in World War II. While at college, he supplemented his income as an extra in movies and TV commercials.

Music career

Lovelock also performed in a rock band with longtime friend and actor Tomas Milian, where he was discovered by a talent agent.[1]

Acting career

Lovelock played his first credited movie part in the Spaghetti western Se sei vivo spara (1967), directed by Giulio Questi and starring Milian.[2] He has since established himself as a reliable character actor in Italian films and television, working steadily from the late 1960s. Amongst his notable titles are Fiddler on the Roof (where he played a Russian farmer who marries a Jewish girl named Chava, against the wishes of Chava's father) (1971), Un posto ideale per uccidere AKA Oasis of Fear (1971), Milano odia: la polizia non può sparare AKA Almost Human (1974), The Cassandra Crossing (1976), The Greatest Battle (1978) and La settima donna AKA The Last House on the Beach (1978).[3]
