Sex and the City star Kristin Davis teared up as she paid emotional tribute to Willie Garson, following his death.
The actor, who played Stanford Blatch on the series, died of cancer on September 21, aged 57.
Appearing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside co-star Cynthia Nixon to promote upcoming revival series And Just Like That, the pair opened up about their loss.
‘Willie was a person who just lightened any situation that he was in, and just would have you in stitches within a minute of coming into a conversation,’ Nixon– who stars as Miranda Hobbes – began.
‘He was a person with incredible stories, showbiz stories and stories about his own zany life and the family he comes from, and the family he created. He is just a person who was always…’
‘Full of joy and so incredibly brilliant, and smart,’ Davis interrupted.
‘Even being sick, which we didn’t know about in the beginning, he still brought so much joy.’
‘Always just had us laughing,’ the Charlotte York Goldenblatt actress continued. ‘It is fair to say we shot with him for a long time not knowing he was sick and then things got bad enough that we were informed.
‘We’re also very grateful that we had a few days with him knowing that he was sick and we could talk to him about it, and he could talk to us about it. That was a really important thing for all of us.’
Choking up, Davis added: ‘It’s hard. I wish he was here, you know?’
Garson will be appearing in three episodes of the upcoming SATC spin-off – landing on screens on Thursday – which were shot before his death.
Carrie Bradshaw actress Sarah Jessica Parker recently spoke of her devastation and losing her close friend both on and off screen.
In an emotional chat with Vogue US, she said: ‘All I can say right now is that it’s as if a scoop has been taken out of me this week, and I don’t expect it to be filled.
‘In time, my body will grow accustomed to this new architecture, but now I feel truly blue.
‘It’s such a loss, and I think about how I’ll miss the joy of these relationships.
‘I think about Willie and the show and how much we laughed,’ she added. ‘And I guess despite everything, that’s the headline: There’s so much good in the world, and we were all so lucky to be together, doing something we loved.’
