Although he was known for his work on “Sex and the City,” alongside his real life best friend Sarah Jessica Parker, per Us Weekly, Willie Garson seemed to have made a name from himself across a variety of genres. The actor had over 170 acting credits to his name, according to his IMDb, and had memorable roles in “NYPD Blue,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Boy Meets World,” “White Collar,” and “Hawaii 5-0,” to name just a few. Garson’s wide acting talents made him a well-loved actor. Many celebrities and fans took to social media to share their sorrow and condolences.
Kevin McHale commented on Nathen Garson’s Instagram post, writing, “I’m so so sorry Nathen. How lucky you two were to have had each other. Seeing how he loved you was one of the greatest things to witness.” (According to People, Garson adopted his son when Nathen was just 12 years old, back in 2009.) Garson’s death was also addressed by others. Jason Alexander wrote, “The wonderful Willie Garson has left us. A dear, funny, kind man and a delightful actor. Too soon. Rest well.” Julie Bowen tweeted, “This breaks my heart. Willie Garson, a friend who loved me at my worst, (and always let me know it) is gone. Goodbye, Fatty. I love you always.”
He will be missed.
