James Gandolfini will forever be remembered for his layered performance as Tony Soprano. He brought the character to life with unrivaled emotional depth for eight years.
And it wasn't just the audiences that felt close to him. The cast and crew of The Sopranos became a kind of family, and they have been hit hard by the news of his passing.
Edie Falco's reaction was understandably heartbreaking. She said:

This is horrible!!!
Legendary actor James Gandolfini is dead at 51.
He reportedly succumbed to a heart attack while in Italy.
The Sopranos star was apparently attending the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily when this unspeakably sad tragedy occurred.
Our hearts go out to his wife Deborah Lin, their daughter, and his son Michael.
Rest in peace, big guy — you were one of our favorites!!!
More details to come as they become available…

Oooh la la, what an enticing beauty Bella Heathcote is!
Vogue is really going to kill the September issue game, especially with their Australian cover featuring the fierce Dark Shadows actress.
She makes fronting the mag look easy-as-pie in her red Christian Dior gown and veil, but Bella is no amateur when it comes to looking phenomenal.
Inside the mag, the star expressed everything from moving to El Lay, her upcoming film, Not Fade Away, and working with Baz Luhrmann.
Here are some HIGHlights

Looks like we've found one of our favorite TV stars that had disappeared!
After pretty much vanishing, following the series finale of The Sopranos in 2007, Silvio Dante/Steven Van Zandt is returning to TV…sort of!
Our favorite Sopranos actor is set to star in Lilyhammer, another series about crime which debuts on Netflix on February 6th!

It's not quite a Sopranos movie…but it's a start!
We've just learned that Edie Falco will be reuniting with her Sopranos co-star Aida Turturro on Season 4 of Showtime's Nurse Jackie!
No details have been revealed yet about
Janice's Aida's role on the show, but whatever the circumstances, it should be fun to see these two on the small screen together again.
They should bring in Silvio for an episode as well! Been a while since we've seen him…or Paulie!
Ahh, we miss The Sopranos!
Are U excited for season four of Nurse Jackie???

Not as a mobster this time, though!
The Sopranos' James Gandolfini is reportedly developing a drama called Big Dead Place, which is based on Nicholas Johnson's memoir about his work in the US Antarctic Program!
Although the actor is only attached to executive produce the project, alongside Breaking Bad scribe Peter Gould - who will also write it - but he could also apparently end up starring!
Nice! We've yet to see anything on the network quite like this, so we're excited to see how it comes together!
What do U think?? Will U be checking out Big Dead Place?
