Edie Falco Still Hasn’t Seen ‘Sopranos’ 20 Years Later
It was a New York night out for the stars of “The Sopranos” as they reunited in honor of the show's debut 20 years ago.
“Extra” spoke with Edie Falco, who played the crime family's matriarch Carmela, as she remembered the series that changed the landscape of television. Edie was happy to see everyone, pointing out, “Many of these people I haven't seen in 10, 15 years.”
One very important person was missing —the show's star, James Gandolfini, died in 2013. Of what made him so special, Edie said, “I think because he didn't know how good he was.”
Would James have attended the reunion had he been alive? Edie said, “Oh, my God, he would hate it. He wouldn't be here [on the red carpet], I'll tell you that much. He would be in the back.”
Despite the popularity of the show, Edie revealed a surprising tidbit, saying, “I haven't seen the show. There are many, many episodes I haven't seen.”
The show's infamous cut-to-black ending is still as controversial now as it was in 2007. Edie noted, “I continually get stopped by people who enjoyed it and want to know what the last episode meant… I tell them I don't know. People say... 'I get that. But what actually happened?' I'm like, 'You don't understand. The cameras stopped. And we went home! That's what happened.'”
The show is going back to its beginnings with a prequel movie, “The Many Saints of Newark,” which starts filming in April. Falco dished, “I can't wait to see it.”
