This is really shocking. 3 time emmy winner, James Gandolfini, died earlier today from an apparent heart attack. He was only 51 years old.
James Gandolfini, best known for his role as an anxiety-ridden mob boss on HBO’s “The Sopranos,” died in Italy, possibly of a heart attack, an HBO spokeswoman and the actor’s managers said Wednesday. He was 51.
Gandolfini was on holiday in Rome, said Mara Mikialian, HBO’s vice president for program publicity.
The actor was expected to make an appearance at the Taormina Film Fest in Sicily this week, according to the festival.
RIP James and condolences to his friends and family.
