Sex and the City fans were devastated to learn about the passing of Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch on the hit HBO show. The cast is equally as crushed over the news, and many have taken to social media to post heartfelt tributes.
“So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @WillieGarson,” Cynthia Nixon tweeted. “We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional—always.”
Kristin Davis posted to Instagram, "I first met Willie in 1995 on the spooky nighttime set of the X-Files. He immediately made me laugh. Little did I know that we would have the joy of sharing Sex and the City + And Just Like That together. Willie is beloved by our entire community. He was smarter and funnier than you ever would have imagined. We are bereft without him.
But I really want to pay tribute to his fearless commitment to single fatherhood. We spoke about being single parents through adoption often. And nothing gave him more joy and pride than his son Nathen. Nathen’s strength and wisdom beyond his years are evident in his beautiful tribute to his dad. The outpouring of love is earned dear Willie. I am thankful for all of the time we had and grateful that so much of your bright light is on film forever. Maybe we can do our podcast the next time around? We love you forever xoxo."
“Such sad news and a terribly sad loss to the SATC family,” Kim Cattrall tweeted. “Our condolences and RIP dear Willie xo.”
Willie Garson is expected to appear in the HBO Max Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That….
