It was really kismet. Edie [Falco] loved him, and he had most of his scenes with Edie,” Cannavale continues.

“For my money, Edie is one of the best actresses we have, period, and she fell in love with him, and he was lucky to have her like him as much as she did.”

Nurse Jackie sees Falco portraying a prescription drug-addicted nurse, the actress recently revealed how her own experience with drug addiction helped her understand Jackie.

“If you aren’t an addict, chances are you don’t really understand the part of an addict that continues behaving that way,” she says.

“You can see how awful it is and the awful things it does to their lives and the people they love. And you think, why would they continue? If you’re an addict you understand completely – because you have to.”
