This is shocking and our hearts go out to the family of ‘Sopranos’ star James Gandolfini.
James Gandolfini — who famously played Tony Soprano on “The Sopranos” — died earlier today in Italy. Gandolfini is believed to have suffered a heart attack. He was 51.
Gandolfini was in Italy to attend the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily — and he was scheduled to participate in a festival event this weekend with Italian director Gabriele Muccino.
Prayers out to his family.
