The Sopranos actor Robert Lupone has died at the age of 76.

The actor and Broadway star passed away following a three-year fight against pancreatic cancer.

His death

“Bob was a force, an advocate, complex in the richest ways, overflowing with a youthful enthusiasm, and deeply wise as he looked in to our souls,” MCC Theater, an off-Broadway theater he co-founded, wrote.

“LuPone’s success was wide and far-reaching, spanning dozens of TV and Broadway performances, earning him some of the most notable recognitions in the industry, including Daytime Emmy and Tony Award nominations,” the Daily Beast noted.

His impact

“His other television appearances include All My Children, which earned him a Daytime Emmy nomination; Sex and the City; and, most recently, Billions,” New York Magazine reported.

“But LuPone spent much of his later career focused on theater development and education, opening Manhattan Class Company Theater alongside Bernard Telsey and William Cantler in 1986 and directing the New School for Drama’s M.F.A. program from its founding in 2005 through 2011,” it added.

The MCC also noted LuPone is survived by his wife, Virginia, his son Orlando, sister Patti, and brother William. He is also survived by the profound impact he had on us. His sister, Patti LuPone, is a Tony award-winning actress and Broadway star.

LuPone will be deeply missed by his family, friends, fans, and those he influenced through his educational efforts.
