Sopranos actress tells court of day Weinstein raped her in her own home

An actress has told a court she felt like she had a seizure as Harvey Weinstein raped her after barging into her apartment and pinning her to the bed.

Annabella Sciorra, best known for playing Gloria Trillo in The Sopranos, went face to face with Weinstein at his trial in New York.

The alleged attack happened in the early 1990s and Sciorra told the court: “I was punching him. I was kicking him. I was just trying to get him off of me.”

She said the film producer overpowered her, grabbed her hands and held them over her head.

“I didn’t have very much fight left inside me,” she testified.
