On Monday the 14th of June at 5PM California (EST) Ariel and I are going live on Instagram to do a virtual live signing exclusive to MJB Memorabilia.
Ariel starred in Season 3 Episode 6 “University” which was written by Terence Winter and Salvatore J. Stabile and story liners David Chase, Terence Winter, Todd A. Kessler, Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess. It originally aired on the 1st of April 2001 and was directed by Alan Coulter.
University was one of the most controversial episodes of The Sopranos and at the time subscribers to HBO were calling to cancel their subscriptions to the network due to the University episode. Even though Ariel only appeared in one episode of the Sopranos she had a major impact on the show, viewers and to this day it is still one of the most talked about episodes of the Sopranos and in my opinion this episode was completely driven by Ariel, her acting was simply brilliant and the way she could draw vulnerability for this part was amazing.
I recently did an interview with Ariel over zoom, we discussed everything from her childhood, school, the auction for the Sopranos, we broke down the University episode, working with James Gandolfini and the cast, what happened after the Sopranos and her big career change to help people, It was amazing to speak with Ariel and to learn about her life, this will be up on my YouTube channel soon.
