Willie Garson, the actor known for his role as Stanford Blatch in the series Sex and the City, has died at the age of 57.
Willie Garson captured the hearts of fans of the series, which first aired in 1998 and lasted six seasons, playing the closest male friend of Carrie Bradshaw, the talent agent Stanford.
Garson also appeared in the series' movies, Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2, and recently reprised his role in the reboot of the TV series And Just Like That, which is currently in production.
Information about Garson's cause of death has not been officially released, but Michael Patrick King, the executive producer of Sex and the City and And Just Like That, said in a statement Tuesday that Garson was ill.
The Sex and the City family has lost one of its own. Our amazing Willie Garson, King said. His spirit and dedication to his craft was present every day on the set of 'And Just Like That.' He was there - giving us everything - even when he was sick. His multitude of talents as an actor and person will be missed by all. At this sad and dark time, we are comforted by our memory of his joy and light.
