An HBO / HBO Max spokesperson also confirmed Garson’s death, and the network honored his contribution to one of the most famous shows in a statement.

“Willie Garson is alive, on screen, a devoted friend and a bright light to everyone in his universe,” the statement read. “He created one of the most beloved characters from the HBO Pantheon and has been a member of our family for almost twenty-five years. We are deeply saddened to learn of his death and extend our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”

In “Sex and the City” Garson plays Stanford Blatch, a friend, and confidant of protagonist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker). He has appeared regularly in the series and in both films.

Born in New Jersey, Garson began training as an actor at the age of 13 and studied at Wesleyan University, according to a bio posted on the university’s website.
His first break in Hollywood was guest appearances on TV shows such as “Cheers” and “Family Ties”.

On television, Garson made a name for himself as a beloved character actor. In addition to his role in “Sex and the City”, he has had memorable episodes on USA Network’s “White Collar”, ABC’s “NYPD Blue” and CBS’s “Hawaii Five-0”.

He recently appeared on the reboot of the series, “And Just Like That”, set to premiere on the HBO Max later this year.

Garson is the proud parent of one child, his son Nathan. He is also an advocate for organizations that help children find homes through adoption.
In January, Garson mentioned his son’s adoption day in an Instagram post, “The best day of my life. As always. This is a tribute to nathen_garson today and every day. “
In the wake of his death, many of Garson’s friends and former colleagues expressed their love for the actor.

Mario Canton, who played Garson’s on-screen husband in “Sex and the City,” called Garson a “smart TV partner” in a heartfelt post.

“I was devastated and drowned in sorrow. Soon it was taken away from all of us. You are a gift from the gods,” he wrote. “Give my dear friend a rest. I love you.”

Matt Bomer, Garson’s co-star in “White Collar”, which ran for six seasons, reminded his friend that Garson “taught me a lot about courage and resilience and love.”
“I still do not roll my head around the world without you – I can not call you when I need to smile or be inspired. The last thing you do when we say goodbye is take off your mask (I hate Covid), smile, and wink at me.” He wrote. “I know it’s not a reflection of the pain you are going through, but it’s an indication of you and everything I have: the one who lifted me up, the one who brought me back, the one who always made me laugh. ”

He added: “You will always live in our hearts and minds: and your white-collar family will always be here for Nathan. Save a place for me, because you know I want to be there at your table.”

Garson’s girlfriend, “Modern Family” actress Julie Bowen wrote: “It broke my heart. Willie Garson, the friend who loved me the worst (and always let me know) is gone. Farewell, fat. I will always love you.”
