Bob LuPone, the legendary ‘The Sopranos’ Actor, Dies Aged 76
The acting world is mourning the loss of veteran actor, Bob LuPone, who died aged 76, after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was one of the most recognisable faces on Broadway and became famous for his appearances in series such as ‘Law and Order’ and, above all, ‘The Sopranos’.
Born in New York in 1946, he grew up on Long Island and has Spanish origins, as his great-grandmother was the opera singer Adelina Patti, born in Spain and raised in Italy.
At an early age he trained as a dancer and joined the Juilliard School, a performing arts school. He also began to take his first steps in the theatre.
He spent most of his career on Broadway, where he landed major roles and was one of the most prominent performers of the time.
