James Gandolfini has died, according to CNN, reporting on a statement by Mara Mikialian, HBO's vice president for program publicity.
Apparently, the actor was on vacation in Rome when he suffered a massive heart attack and died.
Gandolfini was best known for his role as Tony Soprano in HBO's "The Sopranos", but he acted opposite Robert Redford, and many others in important film roles.
He was only 51 years old.
I will miss his work a good deal. He was a fine actor.
In Pace Requiesqat, James Gandolfini. How fragile it all is.
