'Sex and the City' Star Willie Garson Dead at 57

According to close friends, Willie Garson, who was well-known for his roles in the movies and series "Sex and the City", has passed away.
Titus Welliver, the "Bosch” star, announced Willie's death with a post saying "There are no words." You are my dear brother. He added a photo of Willie to his message, "We are less."

Rob Morrow, Willie's friend and fellow actor, also wrote a tribute.

Sources close to the star of 'SATC" tell us that he had been fighting cancer. However, we have not confirmed this as his cause.

Willie was a fan favorite from the hit HBO series... playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s male BFF, Stanford Blatch -- who Carrie Bradshaw called "Stanny" often.

Although he didn't appear on every episode, he was present in 27 episodes over 6 years. His scenes were always memorable.

Willie also appeared in the 'SATC’ movies... and he is at least scheduled to appear alongside SJP in "And Just Like That ..."" -- the new HBO Max series. We know that he shot scenes with Sarah Jessica, Mario Cantone and others in NYC this summer.

WG's roles go beyond 'SATC,' however -- he has been in many movies and shows throughout his career, including "White Collar," Hawaii Five-0," Quantum Leap," Girl Meets World," Mr. Belvedere, "Just Shoot Me!" "Big Mouth," Supergirl, and many other roles.

Since the 1980s, he has 170 credits in acting.

Willie was 57 years old. His son, Nathen, is his last.
