Actor Willie Garson, known for his cult role as Stanford Blatch on Sex and the City, as well as Mozzie on White Collar, has died aged just 57.

Garson's son Nathen paid tribute to his dad on Instagram, sharing intimate photos and videos of his life. "I love you so much papa," he wrote. "Rest In Peace and I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much. I’m so proud of you. I will always love you, but I think it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own. You’ll always be with me. Love you more than you will ever know and I’m glad you can be at peace now. You always were the toughest and funniest and smartest person I’ve known. I’m glad you shared you’re love with me. I’ll never forget it or lose it."

Actress Selma Blair wrote, "He was worth loving. His only everything is knowing you are alright. More than alright. Our children are the ones we give all our love . Our last talk. I wish there was never a last talk with Willie. I will miss him so much."

Garson adopted Nathen, who is now 20, in 2009. "I gave someone a childhood who did not really have a real one," he said in a 2020 interview. "Not only did I get to give him a childhood but guess what? I got to get another one too, which is a great thing because my parents were not child friendly."

Garson's SATC costar Cynthia Nixon paid tribute to him on Twitter, writing, "So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @WillieGarson. We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional— always."
