Happy Birthday: Edie Falco

ediefalco.jpgHappy Birthday actor Edie Falco

Born: July 5, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA

Unlike her brashly assertive alter-ego Carmela Soprano, Falco is self-described as shy, but is clearly a witty and down-to-earth person. She sometimes travels with her beloved dog Marley, driving so that the dog does not have to travel in the baggage compartment. At one point Falco had a relationship with her “Frankie and Johnny” co-star Stanley Tucci. She was treated for breast cancer in 2004 and her prognosis is very good. In December 2004, Falco adopted a baby boy, whom she named Anderson, after her mother’s surname. Another adoption, of a baby girl named Macy, followed in 2008.

QUOTES:

There’s more to us than the moment we made a bad decision.

For a lot of people, film is still the dream – the captive audience in the darkened theater – but I love TV. I think it’s fantastic.

I love flawed characters, male or female, and I only want to talk about flawed characters, really, in what I do.
