Former Sex and the City co-stars of Willie Garson are still thinking of him. Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis led the tribute for Garson as he would have turned 59 on Monday in honor of his birthday.
Nixon, 56, posted a vintage image of the two along with the caption: “Dear Willie, I am thinking of you today on your birthday. I miss you. I miss your sweetness, your snarky sense of humor, and your sublime talent. I miss you when we are shooting. I miss you when not. We are so lucky to have known you but just wish so much you were still here.”

Additionally, Davis’ tribute post included a photo of the two together as well as one of Garson and his son Nathen. Davis, 57, wrote: “Today is Willie’s Birthday. I celebrate all that he has left behind. His incredibly kind and whip-smart son @nathen_garson and so many friends with wonderful memories. We struggle with your absence dear Willie. We miss you and quite frankly there is a painful hole in our hearts.”
She continued, “I can only imagine how Nathen and the rest of the family are coping. I never take my health for granted. And I try to remember to connect and appreciate the people in my life in real-time. We miss your humor and silliness on the set and I miss our conversations about our kids. Hope you are flying free dear Willie.”
Mario Cantone, Garson’s former Sex and the City husband, also left the late actor a moving tribute.
He shared a picture of them onscreen and penned: “Happy Birthday my Big Screen Husband #williegarson. You are missed and loved in so many ways. An incredible partner, father, and friend. You are in my heart and mind through all of it.”

Willie Garson passed away in September 2021 at age 57. He had been subtly fighting pancreatic cancer, and the only cast member who was aware of it beforehand was Sarah Jessica Parker.
On another note, Nathen, who was adopted by Garson in 2009, paid tribute to the “beautiful bald man” who raised him on the occasion of his father’s one-year death anniversary this past October.
