James Gandolfini dead at 51 from stroke

— Posted by Ryan


 

I am sad to report that James Gandolfini was pronounced dead today at the age of 51. The cause was initially thought to be a heart attack but the latest news reports that he suffered from a stroke while attending a film festival in Italy. He is best known for his role as Tony Soprano on the HBO series, The Sopranos for which he earned a Golden Globe and six nominations in the Lead Actor in a Dramatic Series category. His latest work included a role in the film Zero Dark Thirty and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. He is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, a son and a baby daughter. He will definitely be remembered and missed.

 

James Gandolfini, who won three Emmys for his portrayal of flawed antihero and conflicted mob boss Tony Soprano in “The Sopranos,” died in Italy at the age of 51 of a possible heart attack. HBO reps confirmed his death on Wednesday.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
