Many celebrities have commented on the loss. Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey wrote on his Twitter account “a huge fan” of Gandolfini, and that he played the “character Tony Soprano so authentically.” He further tweeted that his passing “is an awful shock” and that he was a “fine actor, a Rutgers alum, and a true Jersey guy.”

 

Most notably, David Chase, the creator of the “Soprano’s” released a heartfelt statement saying that, while Gandolfini wasn’t “easy at all times,” he was still his “brother, and partner in ways that he can’t explain, and will never be able to explain.” Chase claimed that “a great deal of genius resided in Gandolfini’s sad eyes” and he hailed him as “one of the greatest actors” of all time. He remembers even comparing him with Mozart. Chase says that Gandolfini’s passing away is “bad for the rest of the world.”

 

Gandolfini won three Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Tony Soprano, a Prozac taking crime boss prone to panic attacks. He is also known for his role as a woman-beating mobster in “True Romance.” He produced two documentaries in 2007 and 2010 that analyzes post-traumatic stress disorder and the impact of war on American families.

 

He was also ranked among TV Guide’s “50 Sexiest Stars of All Time” in 2005.
