Julia Louis-Dreyfus hails James Gandolfini’s performance in ‘Enough Said’

'Seinfeld' actress says the movie is a 'celebration' of the late actor

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has said that her new movie Enough Said is a celebration of James Gandolfini’s acting talent.

The film was Gandolfini’s last, after The Sopranos actor died of a heart attack in June, just shortly after wrapping up filming the charming romantic comedy about two divorced parents who begin dating again despite their past relationship failings.

Speaking at the BFI London Film Festival, Louis-Dreyfus hailed her co-star’s performance. “It’s bitter sweet, I really wish that he could be here standing next to me,” she said. “Having said that though, I think this movie is a celebration of his enormous talent and it’s really a triumph and a lovely thing for his legacy. I’m so proud to have been in this film with him.”

She added: “You can see his abilities were very deep. He was an amazing actor. In fact this part that he plays is much closer to him than Tony Soprano was, in so many ways, which I think will be nice for his fans to see.”

Enough Said opens in UK cinemas on October 18.
