After learning of Willie Garson’s tragic demise, the stars of “Sex and the City” are “devastated” and “overwhelmed.”
After learning of Willie Garson’s death, the stars of Sex and the City are grieved beyond belief. Willie’s co-stars took to social media to mourn him and share their grief when the actor’s friends and family disclosed the devastating news of his death on Sept. 21.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better TV partner. 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. Take a break… Mario Cantone, Willie’s on-screen love interest in the Sex and the City films, responded on Instagram, “I adore you.”
“This is a tragedy for the entire #SATC #AJLT family, for Willie’s family, and for the world,” Evan Handler, who plays Charlotte York’s husband Harry Goldenblatt, wrote on Twitter. Willie was a royal, the Mayor of every organization he’d ever been a part of, and – most significantly – a father. My heart aches for his child. He’s a consummate comedian. “May God bless you.”
“So truly, deeply sad we have lost @Willie.Garson,” Cynthia Nixon captioned a photo of herself with Willie on Instagram. We all adored him and relished the opportunity to work with him. On-screen and in real life, he was inexhaustibly amusing.
He was a beacon of light, camaraderie, and showbiz knowledge. He was always a consummate professional. My thoughts are with his son, @Nathen Garson. I hope you understand how much he loved you and how proud he was to be your father, Nathen.”
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Chris Noth have yet to comment on the tragic news, but HollywoodLife reached out to them for comment after the actor’s death. “Willie Garson was a dedicated friend and a brilliant light for everyone in his universe in reality, as on screen,” HBO said. 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.”
And Just Like That, a Sex and the City reboot series, will launch on HBO Max later this year. Willie has already shot several scenes for the new show.
