The actor James Gandolfini, best known for his iconic portrayal of troubled mobster Tony Soprano, has died aged 51. He suffered a suspected heart attack on Wednesday while on holiday in Rome.

His performance helped to usher in a golden age of cable television drama, and cemented the HBO channel’s name as a byword for quality.
