Willie Garson — famous for role on the “Sex and the City” series and movies — has died … according to his close friends.
“Bosch” star Titus Welliver broke the news of Willie’s passing with a post that said, “There are no words. I love you dear brother. We are fewer,” and he attached a photo of Willie.
Willie’s fellow actor and friend Rob Morrow also posted a tribute.
Sources connected to the ‘SATC’ star tell us he’d been battling cancer.
Willie was a fan fave from the hit HBO series … playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s male BFF, Stanford Blatch. He played a gay socialite who Carrie Bradshaw often called “Stanny.”
He didn’t appear in every episode, but for the 27 he did pop up for over the course of 6 years … his scenes were always memorable. Willie was also in both ‘SATC’ movies … and he’s at least slated to appear with SJP and co. in “And Just Like That …” — the new HBO Max series. We don’t know if he’d already shot his scenes.
WG’s roles went well beyond ‘SATC’ though — he’s been in tons of shows and movies throughout his career … including stuff like ‘White Collar,’ ‘Hawaii Five-0,’ ‘Quantum Leap,’ ‘Girl Meets World,’ ‘Mr. Belvedere,’ ‘Just Shoot Me!’ ‘Big Mouth,’ ‘Supergirl,’ and many, many more.
He’s got a total of 170 acting credits to his name, dating back to the ’80s.
Willie was 57. RIP
