Best friends forever. Willie Garson and Sarah Jessica Parker were practically inseparable ahead of his death at age 57. The S.e.x and the City costars — who played Stanford Blatch and Carrie Bradshaw, respectively, across six seasons and two movies — were close even before they portrayed BFFs on the HBO series.
“As you probably know, Sarah Jessica and I were friends for 10 years before the show. And we’re still the closest of friends,” Garson exclusively told Us Weekly in June, three months before his son confirmed his death on Tuesday, September 21. “We talk almost every day. The White Collar alum gushed over how excited he was to reunite with the Hocus Pocus actress, 56, and their other SATC costars while filming the new HBO Max spinoff, And Just Like That.
We talk on, like, Twitter sometimes and whatever, but I don’t spend enough face time with Cynthia [Nixon]. I’m really looking forward to spending time with her, actually together,” Garson said at the time.
He recalled talking to Parker about Nixon, 55, reflecting on one of his most memorable times on set with both women.
One of my favorite memories of the show was, I don’t even know what episode it was, but we were in the Hamptons. It might’ve been the wedding episode,” the New Jersey native said. “[I remember] we we’re hanging out at the house and it was me Marcus (Sean Palmer), the boyfriend at the time, Sarah Jessica, Cynthia, and little Brady. And we were on the lawn laughing and playing with the baby. And it was just great. And I remember that day forever.
