'The Sopranos' cast debates show's ending on 20th anniversary

Sopranos Finale

On Wednesday, the cast participated in a panel discussion at New York City's SVA Theater in honor of The Sopranos' 20th anniversary.

Christopher Moltisanti, who was played by Michael Imperioli in the series, was a protege of Tony Soprano, the New Jersey mob boss portrayed by James Gandolfini.

Without Tony Soprano being unlikable and all sorts of selfish, we would have never had other anti-hero TV shows and characters like Don Draper of "Mad Men", Walter White of "Breaking Bad", and Hannah Horvath of "Girls".

Casting for the movie is underway with production on "The Many Saints of Newark" getting started later this year. Falco played Soprano's wife, Carmela.

United States actor Gandolfini died at the age of 51 while on holiday in Rome in 2013.

"I'm clueless", she said. I thought it was magnificent and not everybody agreed apparently.

"It's a very private relationship with that chapter of my life and then here I am with cast members and realising that they all have a private relationship with it and when we get together it becomes very much alive and it becomes so obviously wrong that Jim (Gandolfini) isn't here". And as long as people are thinking about it, The Sopranos lives, whether or not Tony does.

The story is often explored through visits to psychiatrist Jennifer Melfi, played by Goodfellas actress Lorraine Bracco. "I'm playing Dickie Moltisanti, who is the central character in the movie, and he is Christopher Moltisanti's dad".

When The Sopranos ended after eight years in 2007, many viewers were left angered by its notoriously abrupt ending, which leaves the fate of the Soprano family a mystery. But before we get to the pull-quote that's got everyone arching their eyebrows, I'd like to go on record with the following opinion: the ending of The Sopranos can not be "solved", should not be "solved", and was pretty much designed from the ground up to be open to interpretation.

"I loved it!" he tells ET. We'll find out in "The Many Saints of Newark, "the prequel feature film to the iconic HBO series "The Sopranos".
