Romances in Mafia

Behind every good man is a woman, but what about mafia men? Celebrating the broadcast of Forbidden Lust, a Greek gangster drama in which the protagonists fall – fatally – in love with women, we have selected three women in the lives of the most iconic cinema and TV mafia bosses.

Kay Adams-Corleone – The Godfather

Played by the talented and stunning Diane Keaton in Francis Ford Coppola's trilogy of films based on the novel, Kay Adams-Corleone is the wife of mafia boss Michael Corleone. Kay and Michael met while attending Dartmouth College and the spark of love begins there – she is a different woman from all the wives traditional Italian mafia bosses expect.

Kay knows of Michael’s involvement in the mafia and asks him to legalize the family business, but as he fails to do so, she leaves him and remarries to a prosecutor named Douglas Michelson.

Carmela Soprano – The Sopranos

Carmela is the ultimate example of the obedient wife along the series – still, it is thanks to her that Tony Soprano can rule the mafia with his family safe. Played by Edie Falco, Carmela Soprano is a loving mother and supportive wife. She is well aware of Tony's position in the Mafia, and while it is rarely openly spoken, Carmela knows where her husband’s income really comes from. While she feels guilty for allowing her family to be in such a position, she accepts it for what it is.

Grace Shelby – Peaky Blinders

The woman who stole the heart of the most dangerous and sly mafia boss of English fictional crime, Tommy Shelby, Grace is a woman like no other. She was an Irish barmaid who initially worked as a spy agent for the Birmingham Police to get intel from Shelby’s organization.

Having left for New York, Grace returns to England married to an American, but when she reunites with Thomas, it becomes clear their feelings are still alive. Grace marries Thomas following her first husband's suicide. She is later gunned down at a party in a revenge attack against Thomas.
