Sarah Jessica Parker has yet to pay tribute to her late co-star Willie Garson, who died tragically on September 21, and she says she’s “not ready.” According to PEOPLE, the late actor, who played Stanford Blatch, Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw’s BFF on Sex and the City, died at the age of 57 from pancreatic cancer.
We can’t blame Sarah for remaining silent in the wake of Willie’s death, which shocked and saddened Hollywood. The late actor was scheduled to reprise his part in the upcoming SATC revival And Just Like That, for which he had already filmed several scenes. After his death on September 21, the star’s SATC family expressed their sorrow and sent emotional condolences to him.
On Instagram, Mario Cantone, who played Willie’s onscreen love interest Anthony Marentino, expressed his “devastation.” He wrote, “I couldn’t have had a more fantastic TV companion.” “I’m heartbroken and overcome with sadness. We will all be taken away from each other very soon. Willie, you were a gift from the gods. “Relax…I adore you.”
In her homage, Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes, noted that Willie was a “spring of light.” She wrote, “So truly, deeply sad we have lost @Willie.Garson.” “We all cherished working with him and loved him. On-screen and off, he was inexhaustibly amusing. He was a beacon of light, camaraderie, and showbiz knowledge. He was always a consummate professional.”
Chris Noth, who portrays Mr. Big in both the series and the films, shared a photo of Sarah and Willie with the comment “broken heart emoji.” Sarah genuinely wrote, “Thank you darling Chris,” in the comments area of that post. I’m still not ready. Xxx”.
Following the actor’s death, HBO sent a statement to HollywoodLife. “Willie Garson was a dedicated friend and a brilliant light for everyone in his universe in life, as well as on screen,” the network stated. “He was a member of our family for for twenty-five years, and he created one of HBO’s most cherished characters. We are heartbroken to learn of his death and send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.”
