James Gandolfini View gallery James Gandolfini's portrayal of a brutal yet emotionally fragile mob boss in The Sopranos helped create one of television's greatest drama series - and saw him hailed as one of TV's most accomplished actors ever. Gandolfini, 51, played mob boss Tony Soprano in the highly-acclaimed HBO drama series from 1999 to 2007.

He won three Emmy Awards for the role. "He was a genius," said Sopranos creator David Chase. "Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his performances knows that.

There would be silence at the other end of the phone."
