Sex and the City stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon have opened up about the death of their co-star and close friend Willie Garson during an interview with Stephen Colbert.
Davis described Garson as “full of joy, and so incredibly brilliant and smart. Even being sick – which we didn’t know about in the beginning – he still brought so much joy.”
“We shot with him for a long time not knowing that he was sick, and then things got bad enough that we were informed, and so I think we’re all very grateful that we had a few days with him knowing that he was sick. We could talk to him about it, and he could talk to us about it,” said Nixon.
“That was a really important thing for all of us.”
“But it’s hard… I wish he was here, you know?” Davis added.
Garson’s death appeared to equally affect fellow SATC star Sarah Jessica Parker, who shared a heartbreaking Instagram post about her “unbearable” “anguish” over his passing.

“Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls,” she wrote.
“Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface.”
