James Gandolfini to be buried on Thursday in New York

According to information made available to CNN, The funeral service for “Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini will be held Thursday in Manhattan.

Gandolfini, who was on a working vacation in Rome, died Wednesday. An autopsy determined his death was the result of a heart attack, according to Michael Kobold, the family friend.

The 51-year-old actor arrived in Rome with his son, Michael Gandolfini, a day before he died. He had visited the Vatican and dined with his son, the family said.

After he returned to his room, his son alerted hotel staff that he was not answering knocks on the bathroom door.

Hotel staff broke down the door to get to him and called an ambulance, said Tiziana Rocca, head of a film festival the actor was planning to attend.

Gandolfini was in Italy to receive an award at the Taormina Film Fest in the Sicilian town of Taormina.

Instead of the award ceremony, the festival paid tribute to Gandolfini’s lifetime achievements.

The actor shot to fame on the HBO drama “The Sopranos.” In the widely successful series, he played Tony Soprano, a tough New Jersey crime boss. He also appeared in various movies, including “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Killing Them Softly.”
