Vera Farmiga Understands She’ll Be The Second-Best Olivia Soprano

VERA FARMIGA as Livia Soprano and JON BERNTHAL as Johnny Soprano in New Line Cinema and Home Box Office’s mob drama “THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

During the original run of The Sopranos, Nancy Marchand earned two Emmy Award nominations for playing Tony Soprano’s mother, Olivia, before her untimely death following the show’s second season. In the new prequel film, The Many Saints of Newark, Olivia is alive and well, and she’s being played by Oscar and Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga. As much as her work has been heralded, Farmiga told us she couldn’t even imagine playing the role of Olivia any better than Marchand did, but she certainly tried her best.
