By Geoffrey Huchel

Actor Willie Garson, who may be best remembered for his roles on SEX AND THE CITY (1998-2004), and WHITE COLLAR (2009-2014) passed away on September 21, 2021, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

With over 150 film and TV credits, Garson was one of those actors that has appeared in so many things, chances are you may remember having seen him several times, whether in a film or a television series, without even knowing his name. I remember Willie Garson for his guest appearance as Steve on the hit series FRIENDS (1994-2004). Garson was also highly respected by his colleagues, who have been posting tributes and sharing memories of the actor and the wonderful experiences they had working with him.
