[Sidebar: I used to love me some Tony Soprano… for whatever reason, he was sexy as hail to me.]
For six seasons, Gandolfini gave fans his version of a ‘BAWSE’ in the landmark HBO drama, a performance that will forever be cherished as one of television’s best.
That show was so much better than the reality junk we have to deal with today… but I digress!
Details about Gandolfini’s death + videos below…
HBO released the following statement regarding the star:
We’re all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family.
He was special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone no matter their title or position with equal respect.
He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us.
Gandolfini is survived by his wife Deborah Lin, their 8-month-old daughter Liliana, and son Michael, 13, from a previous marriage.
