The Sopranos controversial TV series finale, “Made in America,” first aired on June 10, 2007. Gandolfini passed away on June 19, 2013, in Italy. Speaking at Vulture Fest, Chase said, “I’ll tell you this about it. I’m filled with sadness when I see that ending. I get all choked up — just thinking about it, I get all choked up.”
Here is more, from The Hollywood Reporter:
And Chase was quick to clarify what he meant: “The way the thing builds and the music, to me, it gets me; it makes me want to cry. And it’s not, ‘oh there goes the show, there goes part of my life’ — it’s what’s going on on the screen.”
[Chase] was okay with not giving answers [about The Sopranos’ TV series finale], because to him, that was the point of the show — Tony Soprano was a guy searching for the truth. [Matt] Zoller Seitz commented that the scenes between Tony Soprano and Dr. Melfi were particularly striking because they subverted what normally happens in psychologist scenes on TV, in that there was never a breakthrough or an epiphany.
“There was never an epiphany until that scene in Holsten’s diner,” Chase teased. “I’m joking! I’m joking! I’m kidding.”
