SOPRANOS star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is dreading the end of the mob drama this year (07) - admitting she's "sad" and "scared" for the future.
The 25-year-old actress has played Tony Soprano's daughter MEADOW since the HBO show began in 1999.
Sigler says, "I don't think any of us are (ready for the show to end). It's bittersweet.
"I know I'll never have an experience like this again. Some of the cast and crew had become my closest friends and they've seen me through a lot.
"So I'm trying to appreciate everything even more. But it's been almost 10 years. I could be 35 playing Meadow and I'd still be 'the daughter'.
"It's sad and a little scary, but as much as I have the kind of personality where I like to have control over everything."
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
