"Sex and the City" cast members took to social media to share touching tributes for their late co-star, Willie Garson, who passed away on September 21, 2021.
People confirmed Willie Garson, who played Standford Blatch on "Sex and the City," passed away on September 21, 2021, following a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
Garson's co-stars took to social media to pay their respects to the late actor. Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, Kristin Davis, Kim Catrall, and Cynthia Nixon payed tribute to Garson on their various social media platforms.
Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the hit franchise, has not posted about Garson's passing; however, she commented that she was not ready yet on Noth's Instagram tribute.
Noth shared a photo of Parker and Garson on set. He kept his message short and wrote Garson's name with a heart emoji. However, his co-stars had a lot more to say. Nixon wrote in her tribute to Garson:
"We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life."
Nixon described her late co-star as a serious professional who was a source of light and friendship. She also acknowledged his son, Nathen Garson, and wrote that she hoped he knew how much his father loved him.
Another of Garson's co-stars who referenced Nathen and his upbringing in their tribute was Davis, who first met Garson on the set of "X-Files" in 1995.
Garson's onscreen husband, Cantone, shared an equally touching tribute on his Instagram page.
She wrote that she and Garson often discussed the experiences of being a single parent through adoption, adding that nothing gave Garson more pride and joy than his son Nathen, who he adopted.
Davis remarked that Garson was a beloved member of their community, and she was grateful that his bright light was memorialized on film forever. Catrall also mentioned "SATC" in her tribute as she wrote:
"Such sad news and a terribly sad loss to the SATC family. Our condolences and RIP dear Willie xo"
Garson's onscreen husband, Cantone, shared an equally touching tribute on his Instagram page. The actor shared a photo of himself and Garson in black suits and described Garson as a brilliant TV partner.
Cantone said he was devastated and overwhelmed to hear the news of his passing, as he felt that Garson was taken too soon. He then described Garson as a gift from the gods.
Garson's only son took to Instagram to share his heartbreaking tribute. He called his father the funniest and toughest person he knew and wrote that it was time for Garson to go on his own adventures.
Besides being a fan favorite on "Sex and The City," Garson acted in many different projects during his career, including "White Collar," "Hawaii Five-O," and "Whole Way Down."
