“When I heard of James’ passing I was in New Orleans, where we met shooting, and every memory flooded back and gutted me. I’ll hold that time near to me forever. He was immeasurably great. My heart goes out to his beloved family.” Actress Kristen Stewart adds her tribute to the late James Gandolfini, who portrayed her onscreen father in 2010 drama Welcome To The Rileys. The Sopranos star died after suffering a heart attack in Italy last week (19Jun13).
