The TV show that cast James Gandolfini, Michael Imperioli, Jamie Lynn Sigler, and other creative actors, The Sopranos is widely regarded as one of the greatest TV series in television history. A crime drama that offers a deep exploration of the lives of mobsters and their families, focusing on the challenges they face both within their criminal enterprises and in their personal lives. This show started in 1999 and ended in 2007 with a total of six seasons, and received numerous awards including several Emmy Awards. Michael Imperioli, who portrayed Christopher Moltisanti in the show, opened up about the most brutal scene in an interview with The Guardian:

“The most brutal, difficult stuff for me is when Christopher had to be physically abusive with Adriana, for obvious reasons. On a technical level, you’re trying to be really careful so you don’t hurt the person. But having to get to that point of violence towards a woman, you have to go to some nasty places to get there. Sometimes it’s very immediate. Sometimes it’s something present in your life that you can tap into. Sometimes you have to go someplace from the past. And sometimes you have to go to someplace imaginary.”

As the show had many suspicious episodes and story, Imperioli continued to explain the distinction between filming the planned and practiced scenes versus channeling the emotions of his character, which, he noted, is a more challenging aspect to manage for a show which is highly acclaimed and loved by fans. Every actor involved in the show had to work hard to bring the best complex character possible for the show.
