So. I was awake a 2 a.m. this morning, debating weather to watch episode 1 of series 5 of Breaking Bad, or whether it was a terrible idea because I had a film exam the next day. Just as I was about to go to sleep, I checked my Facebook to see none other than the lovely George Takei share the shocking new that James Gandolfini, the one and only Tony Soprano had died from a heart attack in Rome whilst on vacation with his son.
It’s safe to say that I didn’t sleep for a little while after hearing this news. And I’m sure it isn’t just me who is in shock. It’s just so sudden. He was only 51. Such a shame.
I just wanted to post here to show my respect. The Sopranos is still to this day such a ground breaking television series, and as soon as I started watching it, I loved it. It’s one of the main things that got me into my love of all things Mafia.
I’m just heartbroken. He shall be missed. Rest in Peace.
