TvisitFans of the HBO drama The Sopranos can now visit Tony Soprano’s house, which featured in the classic television show.

Drea de Matteo, the actress behind Adriana, told NME about her struggles with the show ending.

“I felt down - it was very scary. I played a New Yorker with a very heavy accent and that’s the kiss of death for someone who wants to do other things. I jumped right into (Friends spin-off) Joey - which I didn’t think was a smart move but everybody pushed me into it - where I’m playing Adriana but as a cartoon. The reason people love Adriana was because she wasn’t a caricature, she was real.”

Similarly, it took Lorraine Bracco a lot of convincing to play therapist Jennifer Melfi in The Sopranos because of her role in the classic mob movie Goodfellas.
