Damn this is a huge sucky scenario. We were HUGE fans of The Sopranos and had really hoped there would be a comeback season or a movie some day. Reports are scarce on how he passed away, but TMZ broke the news saying that he has indeed died and it was in Italy. More news will surface but for right now it is confirmed... Tony Soprano is no more. Gandolfini was 51 and is survived by his wife Deborah Lin, who gave birth to the couple's daughter in 2012. He also has a son from a previous marriage.
