Sarah Jessica Parker has paid tribute to her Sex And The City co-star Willie Garson, saying she feels like “a scoop has been taken out of her” following his death.

The actor was a fan favourite on the series for his portrayal of flamboyant talent agent Stanford Blatch, a close friend of Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw.

He died aged 57 in September, following a battle with cancer, days after George Malkemus, Parker’s partner in her SJP shoe line, also died of cancer.

Parker had previously said she was “not ready” to address the loss of Garson.

Speaking to Vogue in the aftermath of the deaths, Parker 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.

“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.”

Garson will appear alongside Parker in the Sex And The City reboot And Just Like That … which will arrive on screens later this year.

It will feature the original cast, minus Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones.

Parker said she had spoken to the show’s creator Michael Patrick about bringing it back, saying: “And we spoke about what we were missing in the pandemic: joy, community, the experience of being together. The world of Carrie and her friends has always been about coming home, and I felt like we needed that right now.”
