& # 39; I thought it was great that she played many coming-of-age stories, & # 39; she said about Wood. & # 39; I like that she played the ugly duckling and Gypsy and then, you know, Gypsy became Rose Lee and she became a star. & # 39;

In 1981, the star drowned mysteriously while sailing with her husband, actor Robert Wagner and co-star Christopher Walken.

The Dead Wives Club delves deep into drowning and reveals a number of fascinating twists in the story.

& # 39; I find it a bit shocking to know that her husband has never really had a full police investigation, & # 39; said Bracco.

The circumstances surrounding Wood's death were suspicious and dozens of conspiracy theories have emerged over the years about what really happened to the 43-year-old.

Bracco told DailyMailTV that she felt that the outcome of the case would have shaken differently if it had happened in modern times.

& # 39; The result would definitely be treated very differently & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; I think media attention and social media would have been completely over. & # 39;

The actress's death was initially ruled as an accidental drowning, but in 2012 the Los Angeles County Coroner changed Wood's death certificate and changed the cause of death to & # 39; drowning and other undetermined factors & # 39 ;.

Last year, Wagner was named a stakeholder in the investigation into the mysterious death of his wife, but he has repeatedly denied any involvement.

Lorraine said she decided to focus her attention in part on fictional crime dramas directed at this kind of true female crime stories to send a message.

& # 39; I believe that if we show the truth, this will scare the men, & # 39; revealed the actress. & # 39; It will awaken women to know that if you are being abused, it is not love, it is a form of control.

& # 39; I think those things are very important for women to understand and also for men to know that they cannot get away with it. & # 39;

When asked which of her legendary roles really kept her up, she answered that it was in fact Dr. Melfi was.

& # 39; I want to say Sopranos, because it was so long and sometimes it was hard after a year and a half or whatever. It was quite hard to find her again & # 39 ;, she said about her most famous role. & # 39; It was not so easy to just jump in the chair. & # 39;

Regarding the sometimes not so good doctor today, more than ten years after the show ended, she joked: & # 39; Well, I think it all depends on where Tony was. & # 39;
