Three days after Willie Garson’s tragic passion, Sarah Jessica Parker has finally broken her silence, mourning her beloved friend in a touching post.
Parker uploaded a carousel of photos showing heartwarming moments of her and Garson in “Sex and the City” and off-screen as the close friends that they genuinely were.
There were playful photos of them hanging out on set and a throwback of them cuddling outdoors with matching sunglasses. Parker began the lengthy tribute expressing her heartbreak, writing:
“It’s been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement of the gravity. The anguish.”
A devastated Parker spoke about her 30-plus-year friendship with the late Garson, noting that it was one that allowed for “professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood.”
The 56-year-old admitted that her friendship with Garson was not without heartaches, fear, and rage, but it had a balance of joy and accomplishments that they shared on set, especially in Carrie’s apartment.
Parker recalled she and the late actor laughing late into the night both as co-stars and real-life friends. The actress wrote that she would miss everything about Garson, replay their fond moments, and re-read their texts from the final days.
She described his demise as a crater that she will fill with memories of him. She concluded her tribute, sending her love to Garson’s son Nathen describing him as the “light and greatest achievement” of the actor’s life.
In her final note, Parker shared Garson’s last words to her which were, “great bangles all around.”
Not Ready Yet
Although Parker finally mustered the strength to speak out about Garson’s passing, she previously mentioned that she was “not ready” to publicly address the tragic incident.
Garson played the role of Standford, Carrie’s brutally honest gay friend who was a core part of her life alongside the girls, Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall).
Garson was set to reprise his role as Stanford in the “SATC” reboot series “And Just Like That” was seen several times filming with Parker in summer.
The Blast previously reported that Garson died at 57 on Tuesday, September 21, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The sad news was broken by actor Titus Welliver.
Since his passing, several mighty names in the industry alongside the cast of “SATC” have paid their tributes to the actor and mourned his loss. His on-screen husband Mario Cantone confessed he was “overwhelmed with sadness” and described Garson as “a gift from the gods.”
Nixon praised Garson for being “endlessly funny” on-screen and in real life. Nathen also mourned his father in a touching post, describing him as the toughest, smartest, and funniest person he knows. May Garson rest in peace.
