"When James Gandolfini was on 'Inside the Actors Studio,' our students discovered how thoughtful the real James was - and how knowledgeable and caring he was about the craft he practiced so effortlessly that it didn't look like acting at all," Lipton said. "Like all of the finest actors, James convinced you that whatever you were seeing and hearing was just James being James, with no artifice or design. In fact, it was James being precisely what the writer had written and the director had asked for. We've lost a wonderfully skilled actor."
