James Gandolfini shows his caring side on Sesame Street
James Gandolfini may have become famous playing tough mobster Tony Soprano, but he showed his gentle side as he made a guest appearance on Sesame Street in 2002, to talk about feeling scared.
The video, which was filmed eleven years ago, was posted on the official Sesame Street YouTube channel on Thursday, following the actor's sudden death from a heart attack.
In it, Gandolfini comforts frightened Sesame Street character Zoe, and reassures her that, "everybody gets scared sometimes".
He then confesses that he is afraid of three things; the dark, getting his hair cut and "giant talking vegetables".
Much to his dismay, a huge piece of broccoli then runs past, causing him to hide in fear, before he is comforted by a hug from Zoe, and breathes a sigh of relief.
