“You’ve always been the toughest, funniest, smartest person I know,” his son added.
No details of his death have been released. Messages seeking comments from its representatives were not immediately returned.
Garson played Blatch, a talent agent and devoted and stylish Carrie’s male best friend Jessica Parker for six seasons. He reprized the role in the films “Sex and the City” and “Sex and the City 2”, and had filmed a revival of the upcoming series for HBO Max called “And Just Like That”.
Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes on the show, expressed her grief in a tweet.
“We all loved him and loved working with him. He was endlessly funny on screen and in real life,” she wrote. “He was a source of light, friendship and know-how in the entertainment world. He was an accomplished professional – always.”
