Beloved Willie Garson – known as Stanford Blatch on Sex And The City – lost his battle with cancer yesterday (21st September).

Garson, who was 57 at the time of his death and currently filming for And Just Like That, was battling cancer although his cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

The news comes as a blow to many Hollywood stars, including Matt Bomer, Cynthia Nixon, and Kim Cattrall.

One fan described him as “every one of us who wasn’t rocking a 6 pack, unsure of themselves, diving into this harsh gay world” (via Evan Ross Katz).

Fans will also be curious how Garson’s passing impacts the storyline of the HBO Max reboot.

Rest in peace, Willie! Thanks for the laughs.
