"Sex and the City" stars Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and more have paid tribute to fellow cast member Willie Garson, who has died at the age of 57.

Garson played Stanford Blatch throughout the show's six-season run from 1998 until 2004, and in both subsequent films. He had been filming the upcoming revival series "And Just Like That" before his death.

Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda, shared a photo of herself and Garson on Instagram alongside the caption: "So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @Willie.Garson. We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and in real life."

She added: "He was endlessly funny on-screen and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional- always.

"My heart goes out to his son, @Nathen_Garson. Nathen, I hope you know how much he loved you and how proud he was to be your dad."

Chris Noth, who played Mr Big, shared a photo of Garson and Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Stanford's best friend and the show's lead Carrie Bradshaw.

"Willie," he captioned the photo.

"Such sad news and a terribly sad loss to the SATC family. Our condolences and RIP dear Willie xo," Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha, wrote on Twitter.

Mario Cantone, who played Stanford's love interest Anthony, said he "couldn't have had a more brilliant TV partner."

"I'm devastated and just overwhelmed with Sadness. Taken away from all of us way soon. You were a gift from the gods. Rest my sweet friend. I love you," he wrote on Twitter.

A family member confirmed the death to Variety on Tuesday but did not disclose a cause.

Michael Patrick King, an executive producer of "Sex and the City" and "And Just Like That" said in a statement that the actor had been sick.

"The 'Sex and the City' family has lost one of its own. Our amazing Willie Garson," King said in a statement to Variety.

"His spirit and his dedication to his craft was present every day filming 'And Just Like That.' He was there - giving us his all - even while he was sick. His multitude of gifts as an actor and person will be missed by everyone. In this sad, dark moment we are comforted by our memory of his joy and light," King added.
