Willie Garson may have “always wanted” to be a dad, but he never stopped his other love of acting. Michael Patrick King, the executive producer of “Sex and the City” and “And Just Like That…” revealed that Garson had been sick during production. “His spirit and his dedication to his craft was present every day filming And Just Like That. He was there – giving us his all – even while he was sick,” he said in a statement, per The Guardian. Since news broke, tributes have poured in from his “Sex and the City” co-stars including TV husband Mario Cantone (Antony Marantino) who wrote he was “devastated.” Meanwhile, Cynthia Nixon said: “We all loved him and adored working with him.”
Garson has starred in “Sex and the City” ever since its inception in 1998, reprising his role throughout its six seasons, follow-up films, and the reboot. While he probably wouldn’t have earned as much as friend and co-star Sarah Jessica Parker (who reportedly scored $3.5 million per episode) Garson’s loyalty to the series and other prominent television and film roles would have given him a sizable salary. He notably starred in series such as “The X-Files,” “Friends,” and “White Collar” alongside Matt Bomer — of which he also directed a few episodes. Garson also made his mark on the big screen with “Freaky Friday,” “There’s Something About Mary” and “Groundhog Day.” Keeping all that in mind, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Garson to have a net worth of $10 million.
