At the funeral of James Gandolfini, David Chase, who created The Sopranos, said that the actor brought the traits of a sad boy, “amazed and confused,” to the role of Tony Soprano.

According to yahoo.com, Chase gave his remarks in the form of a letter to Gandolfini, in the present tense.

“You were a good boy,” David Chase said Thursday at the ceremony at New York’s Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine.

Chase also recalled that Gandolfini once said to him, “you know what I want to be? A man. That’s all. I want to be a man.”

And Chase said that, paradoxically he always felt he was seeing a young boy.

“A sad boy, amazed and confused,” he said. “You could see it in your eyes. That’s why you were a great actor.”
