After Ray Liotta’s death, his daughter and fiancé attended the Los Angeles premiere of his latest series, Black Bird.
The US actor Ray Liotta (1954-2022), who died at the end of May, was no longer able to attend the premiere of his new Apple TV series “Black Bird” in Los Angeles. But his daughter, Karsen Liotta (b. 1998), and his fiancee, Jacy Nittolo (47), did not miss an appearance on the red carpet.
Despite their grief, the two women were stylish – and in black. Karsen wore a long-sleeved mini dress with silver accents at the hem, paired with pointy pumps with beaded straps. Nittolo wore a sleeveless, floor-length slip dress and heeled sandals.
