Tony Sirico, Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s fictional uncle on The Sopranos, died on Friday, and she is honoring him with a tribute video.
Actress Sigler, who played Meadow Soprano on HBO’s iconic program, expressed her sorrow on Instagram after learning of Sirico’s death.
Photos of her time with Sirico were posted on Instagram and she described him as generous, talented, and inspiring in her lengthy caption.
“It’s been a long time, Tony. I’m inconsolable at this loss. I miss you so much “She penned.
“It was impossible for me to enter a room where you were present without being greeted with an enormous hug, sprayed with your cologne, and told that any male who came near me had to answer to you first.
You were a master of the craft. Taking over every scene in which you appeared.
While you were fierce and a genuine artist, you were also a nice and gentle person. There’s no one else like you in the world. Having known and been loved by you has made me feel really fortunate. ❤️❤️💔.”
Lorraine Bracco, who played Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Tony Soprano’s psychiatrist, also voiced her admiration for Paulie “Walnuts” Gualtieri on Instagram.
He was “a stand-up person who was always there for me and my family,” she stated in the caption of her Instagram post.
“The Bensonhurst Spelling Bee was one of the best times of my life with Tony, from Goodfellas to The Sopranos and beyond. I hope he’s making everyone laugh in heaven now. My pal, I’m in love with you. rest comfortably.”
Some of Sirico’s other Sopranos co-workers also expressed their sorrow at the unfortunate news.
When asked about her role as Tony Soprano’s wife, Edie Falco told Rolling Stone magazine that “Unlike any other, Tony Sirico was devoted, kind, and a true original. And it’s hilarious.”
In an Instagram post, James Gandolfini’s son, Michael Gandolfini, recalled his father as “one of the nicest, fiercest and heartfelt individuals that I’ve ever met.”
In the prequel to The Sopranos, The Many Saints of Newark, Michael would play the younger version of Tony Soprano, the character he played with his late father.
In all six seasons of the show, Sirico played a gangster in Tony Soprano’s tight-knit gang. Sirico’s manager, Bob McGowan, verified the revelation to CBS News, saying that Sirico was “a terrific, loyal client” who “would do everything to help individuals in need.”
It is not clear what McGowan’s death was caused by. He conveyed the news of Sirico’s death on Instagram by way of Michael Imperioli, who earned an Emmy for his role as Christopher Motisanti in the HBO series.
A long statement from the actor said, “It hurts me to say that my beloved friend, colleague, and partner in crime the great TONY SIRICO passed away today. “
“I’ve never met someone like Tony; he’s the most fearless, devoted, and generous-hearted person I’ve ever met.
I was always there for him, whether it was a happy or bad time. But overall, things are going well. And we laughed a lot. With Tony, I was able to put together some of my greatest and most enjoyable work. ‘Chris and Paulie'”
