American actor Frank Vincent, who was known for his gangster roles in “Goodfellas” and “The Sopranos,” died on Wednesday.

Television network HBO saluted Vincent on its Twitter account, saying, “Our family will never forget the Leotardo Legacy. RIP to an HBO legend.”

The reference was to Phil Leotardo, Tony Soprano’s ruthless antagonist at the end of the wildly popular series starring James Gandolfini, who died in 2013.

Celebrity news site TMZ said Vincent died of complications following open heart surgery in New Jersey. He had suffered a heart attack a week earlier.

He also voiced the character of a Mafia boss in several “Grand Theft Auto” computer and video games.
