It’s been almost 12 hours since I heard about James Gandolfini‘s untimely death and I’m still shocked and upset about it.
It seems strange to have such a reaction to someone’s death when I’ve never met them, but this is exactly what’s happening. We all know he was a fantastic actor and by all accounts he was a truly great person…. it’s so sad that he died so young. 51 is way too young.
If you haven’t seen Not Fade Away or Killing Them Softly, two of his last on-screen performances, please go check them out. I really enjoyed both films and he was perfect in both roles. Each performance was completely different.
In 2004, he appeared on Inside the Actors Studio. I’ve seen this before but watching it again seems fitting.
