She said, “I knew before we started shooting that Willie was sick. He asked me to keep that confidential, and I honored that.”

Willie Garson died of pancreatic cancer and everyone in the entertainment biz got shook with the news. His death weighed heavily on Sarah Jessica Parker. She added, “We were a vaccine-mandated show, but nonetheless, a lot of our scenes were with a lot of background players, and I had great concerns about Willie staying as healthy as he could while shooting.
