The man who played Tony Soptano dies at age 51. James Gandolfini dies in Italy last night. He was only 51 years old. He leaves behind a wife a young daughter and a son from another marriage. The cause of death wasn’t released.
It is thought that Gandolfini suffered a heart attack while on holiday in Italy. Gandolfini will always be remembered for his role in the Soprono’s where he played the ruthless crime family boss Tony Soprano.
The former cast members of the hit show the Soprano’s are in shock as they remember the genius they saw come to life in James Gandolfini. He was born in Westwood, NJ on September 18 1961 and Died: June 19, 2013, in Rome, Italy.
He will be greatly missed. His acting genius earned him a number of awards. Gamdolfini didn’t want to be remembered as the mobster that beat people up and killed some, he played in a number of smaller roles after the Soprano’s ran its course.
The man will be missed. He was much to young to die and his acting genius will live on forever…..
