Michael Gandolfini, son of Late Sopranos star James Gandolfini who portrayed a young Tony Soprano in ‘The Many Saints of Newark,’ made a guest appearance at the 25th Anniversary celebration of The Sopranos in New York City.
We can say that the celebration of The Sopranos’ 25th anniversary would be complete without the presence of Michael Gandolfini, who paid tribute to the hit show on Wednesday at HBO’s event in New York City.
24-year-old son of late actor James Gandolfini graced the occasion accompanied with his girlfriend Mia Healey. The couple wore matching coloured outfits in black attire as they posed together for photos on the red carpet.
He also posed for the camera with Sopranos alum Kathrine Narducci, who played Charmaine Bucco, Artie Bucco (John Ventimiglia)’s wife.

The son of the late actor was seen in the 2021 crime drama, “The Many Saints of Newark”, where he portrayed the role of a younger version of his dad’s character, Tony Soprano. The cast of the drama includes; Ray Liotta, Leslie Odom Jr., Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga, who played Tony’s mother.
While portraying the role of Tony in the movie, He shared his views to the PEOPLE, “In this drama my goal is to do justice to the iconic role. I didn’t mean to emphasize “play my dad” or nailing down his dad’s mannerisms from the earlier “The Sopranos”.
Once Michael said that, “I definitely look like my dad but we don’t have the same gestures, the accent, the way he uses his eyes”.
“No doubt I want to adapt those qualities, because if I could get his physicality”, added further. “Watching him on screen for the time I realized how good he was. My dad’s performance gave me mixed emotions as sometimes it pissed me off and at one time I felt so proud”. Michael said at the time.
