Ray Lovelock


Handsome, charming and versatile actor Ray Lovelock was born on June 19, 1950 in Rome, Italy to an Italian mother and English father. Lovelock's father was an allied British soldier who in 1944 liberated Italy from a fascist regime. Ray's father met and eventually married his mother while stationed in Italy. Lovelock's the third of four sons and the only artist of the quartet. Ray first became interested in acting while attending college as a teenager. He began as an extra in both movies and TV commercials to make extra money. An acting agent discovered Ray performing in the Roman nightclub the Piper in a rock band with longtime friend and fellow thespian Tomas Milian. This lead to his first role in the spaghetti Western "Djanjo Kill." However, it was Ray's part in the hugely successful "Bandits in Milan" that really launched his acting career. Lovelock was fine as David, a free-spirited hippie drifter who falls under the seductive spell of three sexy witches in the eerie "Queens of Evil" (besides playing the lead in this picture, Ray also sings the haunting folk theme song. Lovelock has sung the title tracks for many films he's appeared in throughout the years.) He was likewise excellent as reluctant hero George in the terrific zombie horror cult classic "The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue" and as Mimsy Farmer's smooth race car driver lover Edgar in the morbid giallo "Autopsy." Ray gave a memorably slimy performance as apathetic criminal gang leader Aldo in the brutal "Terror." More recently Lovelock had a recurring role as surgeon Dr. Hans Rudolf in the Italian TV series "Incantesimo." His wife Gioai is also his agent. They met in 1968 and got married in 1970. Their daughter Francesca Romana Lovelock was born in 1971 and works as an assistant director in Naples. An avid soccer lover, Ray Lovelock serves as the captain of an Italian actors soccer team who play soccer matches to raise money for charity.
