Emotional crowds gathered at a Manhattan church Thursday for the funeral of James Gandolfini, star of the cult TV series "The Sopranos."
Gandolfini, a three-time Emmy winner for his portrayal of New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano, died June 19 after a heart attack in a hotel in Rome, where he was on holiday. He was 51.
Mourners converged on the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, an Episcopal church that is among the world's biggest, well before the scheduled 10:00 am (1400 GMT) start of the funeral.
