VIDEO: Sesame Street pays tribute to James Gandolfini with heartwarming clip

The world was devastated to hear the news that Sopranos actor James Gandolfini had passed away on Wednesday at the age of 51.

He was on a family holiday in Rome when he died of a suspected heart attack.

A whole host of Hollywood stars have paid tribute to James, and now Sesame Street has made a video available on YouTube of his appearance on the show in 2002.

In the heartwarming clip, James - best known for his role as mob boss Tony Soprano - can be seen telling Sesame Street character Zoe that it's OK to feel scared, and that even he feels frightened sometimes.

He admits that three things scare him - the dark, getting a haircut and giant talking vegetables.

A message on Sesame Street's Twitter read: "James Gandolfini's heartwarming appearance on our show is beloved by everyone here. We wanted to share it with you."
