James Gandolfini Method Actor

Posted on 20 June 2013


Last night my wife Natalie and I decided to watch a movie. It was called ‘Killing Them Softly’. It’s a very good film but what was outstanding was James Gandolfini’s performance. It’s a masterclass in great screen acting.

The next day I hear the sad news that he has passed away.

He was an amazing method character actor, who could convey so much through those big sad eyes of his.

Of course, he will be most remembered for his role in the Soprano’s.

When he was interviewed about being cast in that role, he said he was shocked when he got the job. He thought they would go for a handsome leading man type.

Thank god they didn’t. He changed the face of American TV with that role.

RIP James Gandolfini.
