It’s been a minute since Jamie-Lynn Sigler has stepped into her role as Meadow Soprano from HBO’s hit series The Sopranos, which ran from 1999-2007, but no time like the present, right?
The actor revisited the iconic series in a new Super Bowl ad for Chevrolet’s electric 2024 Silverado EV, which aired on Sunday, February 13. The commercial was a modern recreation of the show’ s opening credit sequence, which involved Tony Soprano (played by James Gandolfini) driving from Manhattan to New Jersey in a Chevy Suburban.
This time, Sigler was behind the wheel. At the end of the spot, she’s seen reuniting with her Sopranos costar Robert Iler, who played A.J. Soprano.
“It was so exciting,” Jamie-Lynn Sigler told People. “Robert and I are still best friends. We’re so close… What we experienced together was very unique. The Sopranos was a once-in-a-lifetime thing in many ways. It was 10 years of our lives and we were kids and we grew up on that show, and so this just takes you right back. We couldn’t have asked for a cooler experience.”
As for the late Gandolfini, who died in 2013, Sigler says he was very much top of mind during the shoot. “Whenever we do anything with Sopranos, your first thought is always Jim,” she says. “He was, particularly, Robert and I’s biggest supporters and biggest fans, so there were many mentions of him.”
She added, “His presence was very much felt throughout it all, of course, because anything we ever do having to do with Sopranos, he is there. And just the thought of that opening sequence with him, it’s so iconic. He always drove that Chevy Suburban everywhere. It’s how we close our eyes and picture Tony Soprano.”
