How James Gandolfini helped become a better actress
You could feel that I was wanting so badly to do a good job, and he said Jamie, just look in my eyes and trust me. Just talk to me. And he just gave me such great lessons during that whole episode of being an actress.
You know, just being in a scene with him, you know and I’ve said this many times, you walked away a better actor
Broadway was Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s real passion
Jamie-Lynn Sigler further talks about how instead of movies and TV shows, her real passion was theatre and Broadway. Sigler said:
Theatre, that’s like home to me. Like, I don’t even think about how many people are out there. That’s my favorite thing to do.
And she especially loved musical theatre. She felt like acting came naturally to her when she was singing, just like the time when Meadow Soprano sang for the choir. On the other hand, films and movies are a lot more intimate for her, where she gets nervous. However, due to her MS and the physical limitations that come with it, it’s difficult to pursue a career in broadway for Jamie-Lynn. Regardless, she is still trying her best and in continuous physical therapy to make this dream come true for her. We wish Jamie-Lynn Sigler all the best for her endeavors!
