NEW YORK (AP) — The funeral for James Gandolfini will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.

An HBO spokeswoman speaking on behalf of Gandolfini's family says the funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m.

The 51-year-old star of "The Sopranos" died Wednesday in Rome. Family spokesman Michael Kobold says Gandolfini died of a heart attack.

HBO confirmed on Monday that Gandolfini's body had been returned to the United States from Rome.

The actor had been headed to Sicily to appear at the Taormina Film Festival, which paid tribute to him Saturday.
