Sarah Jessica Parker posts touching tribute to late co-star Willie Garson

Sarah Jessica Parker has paid tribute to her late Sex and the City co-star Willie Garson after he died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57 on Tuesday.

Taking to Instagram to share her thoughts and a carousel of photos of them together across the years, Sarah described the ‘anguish’ of his loss as ‘unbearable’ as she opened up on the duo’s ‘real friendship’ across 30 years.

She had previously said she was ‘not ready’ to publicly mourn the death of her friend, following castmates’ touching tributes on social media.

Garson portrayed flamboyant talent agent Stanford Blatch, the close gay best friend and confidante of Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, and had been filming for the upcoming HBO Max spin-off series And Just Like That.

She wrote: ‘It’s been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship.

‘A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.

‘Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls.’

She continued: ‘Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface.

‘My love and deepest sympathies and condolences to you dear Nathen. You were and are the light of Willie’s life and his greatest achievement was being your Papa.’

The star also recalled Garson’s last words to her.

‘These were his last words to me, she wrote. ‘”Great bangles all around.” Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. RIP.’

Garson leaves behind his son Nathen, now 20, who he adopted in January 2010 after meeting the then seven-year-old at an adoption fair.

Garson is survived by Nathen, his brother John Paszamant, sister Lisa Clark, nieces Katie Clark, Jenna Clark and Amanda Clark and nephews Joshua Paszamant and Michael Paszamant.
