Willie Garson (57) lives on in the hearts of the fans! The actor was convinced in series like Sex and the City and “White Collar” with his charming nature. After the American was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the popular TV star died in September 2021. His death left a big gap among his fellow actors, precisely because he succumbed to his ailment in the middle of filming And Just Like That. Willie would have been 59 today!
The Stanford Blatch actor in Sex and the City appeared in the first three episodes of the sequel. One fan wrote on Twitter after his death: “It’s heartbreaking to watch ‘ And Just Like That ‘ with Willie Garson knowing he was ill while filming.” Willie fought to the end. However, only Sarah Jessica Parker (57) knew about his illness on the set. The others were told only when it could no longer be denied.
In the series, his disappearance was explained by Stanford taking a job in Japan mentoring a TikTok star there. The producers had decided against a serial death, as Willie should live on viewers’ screens forever.
