15 Stars From The Sopranos: Where Are They Now?

15. John Ventimiglia – Artie

Currently residing in Brooklyn with his daughters, John Ventimiglia is one of the Sopranos gang who has continued his career within television and the acting profession. Ventimiglia starred as Tony Soprano’s childhood friend, Artie Bucco, a restaurant owner who was often the butt of the jokes within the series. He was a man who would often make many mistakes but would never learn from them, even with his character stretching from the first episode to the last.

14. Joseph R. Gannascoli – Vito

Despite making his mark as Vito in the later stretch of the show as one of the only closeted gay gangsters to have ever appeared on screen, Joseph R. Gannascoli has always remained passionate about cooking and nowadays that is where his passion for work lies.

13. Dan Grimaldi – Patsy

Having played Patsy Parisi (and twin brother Philly) in The Sopranos, Dan Grimaldi served as the accountant to Tony Soprano and his gang, also procuring fine suits and occasionally getting his hands dirty when called upon. While the actor still dips his toes now and again in the acting pool, Grimaldi has somewhat replicated his character Patsy’s intelligence and applied it to his main job in life nowadays, as a mathematics professor.

12. Steve Schirripa – Bobby

One of the more noticeable faces from The Sopranos, Steve Schirripia has seen his career go from one project to the next as the years have passed by. Not only has Schirripia starred in shows such as The Secret Life Of The American Teenager and various different Discovery Channel shows, he has also delivered regular voice work for the Open Season movie franchise.

11. Drea de Matteo – Adriana

Another member of the Sopranos crew who won themselves an Emmy, Drea de Matteo played the part of Adriana La Cerva, fiancée of Christopher Moltisanti. In her time within the show, Matteo’s character slowly turned from an initially money-grabbing woman to someone rather accomplished and versed in her husband’s determination to stay at the top of the mobster chain.

10. Aida Turturro – Janice

An individual who continues to work on the public awareness of rheumatoid arthritis, Aida Turturro made her name as Janice Soprano. She was known as one of the most manipulative and frustrating characters within the whole show and certainly wanted much more than she could ever possibly have in the world of Tony Soprano and his crew. The cousin of film star John Turturro, she has starred in episodes for the shows Blue Bloods, Medium and Curb Your Enthusiasm, while also reuniting with Edie Falco for an installment of Nurse Jackie.

9. Jamie-Lynn Sigler – Meadow

8. Robert Iler – AJ

Following his role as A.J. Soprano in the HBO show, Robert Iler has somewhat led a life that could be loosely compared with the individuals within the Soprano circle. During the show’s run, he was arrested for armed robbery and possession of marijuana, and in 2005 he was on the scene when underground poker club Ace Point was the target of a police raid.

7. Tony Sirico – Paulie

Since playing the part of Paulie ‘Walnuts’ Gualtieri, Tony Sirico has worked on various projects that have mostly gone under the radar. Despite this, he did recently enjoy a starring role in Family Guy, having taken on the mantle of the Griffin family dog, following the demise of popular character Brian in 2013. Taking over the pet role as Vinny the dog, Sirico would last just a few episodes, but would return as himself following an altercation with Stewie, who would label Italians as “ridiculous people.”

6. Dominic Chianese – Junior

At the grand old age of 85, Dominic Chianese is still making his way within the industry, following his stint as Junior Soprano, uncle to lead character Tony. Junior’s journey within the show eventually ends with sadness as Tony has to come to terms with his uncle being consumed by dementia. He has since starred in an impressive line of hit shows, including The Good Wife, Boardwalk Empire and the Glenn Close-led Damages, as well as forging himself a music career.

5. Steven Van Zandt – Silvio

Despite being known for his role as Silvio Dante in the show, Steven Van Zandt is one actor who is more aligned with his musical side, having actually made his name in music prior to the HBO show. With that in mind, Van Zandt has, since the end of The Sopranos, gone back to his roots and continues his work with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. In 2014, Van Zandt was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the band, and in 2009 he actually performed at the grandest stage of them all, the Super Bowl.

4. Michael Imperioli – Christopher

Having written some of the early episodes of the show and shone brightly as Christopher Moltisanti, it was always a dead certainty that Michael Imperioli would continue his impressive career within the industry. Moving on from The Sopranos, he also starred in Californication, Hawaii Five-O, and Mad Dogs, while he has recently been confirmed to star in the second season of Lucifer as the Angel Uriel. Imperioli was also a part of Spike Lee’s remake of the Korean masterpiece Oldboy.

3. Lorraine Bracco – Dr. Melfi

Lorraine Bracco played the pivotal role of Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Tony Soprano’s psychiatrist. As very much the only person that Tony would reveal all of his thoughts and secrets to, Melfi would be an ever-present feature of the show and certainly presented a wonderful actress in Bracco. Having starred in every episode of the show’s run, Bracco has since seen various television show appearances fill her schedule, with her most notable being in the TNT show, Rizzoli and Isles. In the show she played the mother of one half of the title duo, Angela Rizzoli, which focuses on a pair tasked with solving crimes in Boston. She has also provided the voice of Dr. Janet in Will Arnett’s animated Netflix comedy, BoJack Horseman. 2.

2. Edie Falco – Carmela

The matriarch of the Soprano family and multi-award winning actress because of that very role as Carmela Soprano, Edie Falco has seen plenty of success in her career through the years. Following the conclusion of The Sopranos, Falco continued her reign as one of the most underrated actresses in the business as she led Showtime’s hit show, Nurse Jackie, on a successful run from 2009 to 2015.

 1. James Gandolfini – Tony Soprano

The cornerstone of the show and an undeniably rich and refreshing talent, James Gandolfini sadly died of a heart attack in 2013, leaving behind an unforgettable acting legacy. Having starred in all 86 episodes of the hit HBO show, Gandolfini also made his presence felt in a movie career that spanned over 25 years, marking his mark in movies such as 8mm, The Mexican, Zero Dark Thirty, the hearty Enough Said and the incredible Killing Them Softly, opposite Brad Pitt. Incredibly, Gandolfini’s name still lives on, with his latest posthumous recognition coming as an executive producer for HBO show, The Night Of.
