Even though he protested and he’ll probably never be really straight… I think she really cares about him. You don’t spend seven years with someone and get rid of them. I felt bad about that. ”

Bracco added that she “didn’t like the way [Chase] ended “her character’s relationship with Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), adding that “it was rough” and “suddenly”. That said, she still looks at the show with gratitude and admiration. “We can honestly say it has kept its beauty.”
