A few days removed from the unthinkable loss of the iconic Sopranos star, many of James' acting colleagues are finally able to put their heartfelt thoughts on his passing into words.
Working on that flick together meant a lot to KStew; she says their relationship greatly transcended what we saw on the screen.
“When I heard of James’ passing I was in New Orleans, where we met shooting, and every memory flooded back and gutted me. I’ll hold that time near to me forever. He was immeasurably great. My heart goes out to his beloved family.”
Aww, she really sounds like she's hurting!!
See a clip them acting together in a clip from their 2010 drama (below).
Ugh! They were so good together!! What a tragic loss!
James was 51 years old.
