How Michael Gandolfini honored his late dad, James Gandolfini while filming 'Sopranos' prequel

Michael, who was 14 years old when James died of a heart attack at the age of 51 in 2013 during a family vacation in Rome, noted that accepting the role was "probably the toughest decision I've ever had to make." "You know, I didn't want to put pressure on myself to walk out of this feeling like I'd grown in terms of my feelings towards my dad," he said. "I just wanted to be the best actor I could be, portraying Tony in the way David wanted, scene by scene. I didn't think about my grief because… well, I would have s--- the bed."
