A Film Industry Tribute to Ray Chan

On Tuesday 23rd April, our dear colleague and friend Ray Chan sadly passed away having suffered a stroke. 

One of the most energetic and passionate characters to grace the film industry; so many of us have been fortunate enough to experience Ray's dedication, creativity and endless enthusiasm over the last three decades. 

It doesn't seem conceivable that someone so dynamic can be taken so soon, and so suddenly.


The movie world has truly lost one of it's main characters.  


This page has been set up for us all to pay tribute to Ray - and his family has proposed the Stroke Association in the hope that more lives can be saved by greater awareness.  Please give as much or as little as as you can afford, and feel free to leave a message of condolence.

It’s been over 6 weeks and I don’t know what my life looks like without him and I don’t want to try. Very few people have had such an impact on who I am and have so clearly shaped my life. That was Ray’s gift. He touched everyone he met with his kindness, generosity, and infinite energy. Over the last five years, I got to see the kind of artist, leader, and person I long to be. Thank you for being a generous mentor and a loyal friend. The world has lost one of its brightest stars. Chin-chin! ❤️

It’s been 6 weeks now since receiving the news and I still get teary very easily thinking of Ray. Reading the thoughts on here it is clear to see he touched so many lives and left such an imprint on everyone’s career. I became Rays coordinator quite by chance and what an amazing twist of fate that was. A quick interview and I was in. I then stayed for the next three long marvel jobs until America stole my Film family. I was really sad not to be able to go with them, but we all stayed in touch, Ray even sent my baby daughter a gift when she was born in 2021, so kind and thoughtful. There are so many great memories to mention including the Avengers Age of Ultron Premiere Party where he kept popping up behind me with even more Prosecco. I said ‘Ray every time you bring me another one of these I’m going to be another 30 mins late tomorrow .’ He just laughed and the glasses kept coming. I will never forget you Ray and thank you so much for everything. I hope wherever you are they have Fruit Pastels and really good coffee :)

When we were all bit younger we used to hold a family party here in Mumbles (perilously) close to Christmas most years. On these happily chaotic occasions there was a sense of completeness when Ray was on the right side of the Atlantic and could come. Once he Lindsay
