Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon wrote, “So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @WillieGarson. We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional— always.”
Kim Cattrall posted a photo of herself with Garson along with the note: “Such sad news and a terribly sad loss to the SATC family. Our condolences and RIP dear Willie xo.”
Fellow SATC alum Mario Cantone shared a heartfelt message for his “sweet friend.” “I couldn’t have had a more brilliant TV partner,” he wrote. “I’m devastated and just overwhelmed with Sadness. Taken away from all of us way soon. You were a gift from the gods. Rest my sweet friend. I love you.”
Ben Stiller sent love to Nathen and wrote on Twitter: “Your dad was strong and respected in his community of fellow actors and his philanthropy was constant and committed. I’m grateful I knew him. He was also really really funny.”
