James Gandolfini a.k.a Tony Soparno Dies From Heart Attack At Age 51

Wow, so young. RIP.

4:48 PM PT -- The celebrity tributes have begun ... we just spoke with Joseph R. Gannascoli -- aka Vito on "The Sopranos" -- who tells us. "James is one guy who never turned his back on me. He was the most humble and gifted actor and person I have ever worked with."

He adds, "He was a great man and I will forever be indebted to him. "

James Gandolfini -- who famously played Tony Soprano on "The Sopranos" -- died earlier today in Italy ... TMZ has learned.

Gandolfini is believed to have suffered a heart attack. He was 51.

Gandolfini was in Italy to attend the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily -- and he was scheduled to participate in a festival event this weekend with Italian director Gabriele Muccino.

Gandolfini shot to fame playing a hitman in the 1993 hit "True Romance" ... and quickly became a Hollywood legend when he was cast as Tony Soprano in 1999. He won 3 Emmy awards for the role during the show's 6 season run.

Gandolfini also appeared in a ton of huge movies including "Get Shorty," "The Mexican" and "Zero Dark Thirty."

We last spoke to Gandolfini in May in L.A. -- he was in great spirits, making funny faces and joking about a "Sopranos" movie.

RIP but honestly to me he always seemed to be of ill health. He was always sweating and breathing heavily in his roles, sometimes it was actually quite distracting

Hell of an actor though, he'll be missed

Not too shocking given his size and fitness level RIP, such a great actor, IMO Sopranos was one of the best TV shows ever, Gandolfini made the character of Tony Soprano captivating.

he was supposedly a drug user and alcoholic too so it's not a huge surprise really which came out during his divorce trial his wife accused him of it and his assistant was a witness as well as private eyes the wife hired and Gandolfinis lawyer admitted to drug/alcohol use

shame though, rip
