Willie Garson, the actor best known for his roles in ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘White Collar’, has died aged 57, according to Variety.

A family member confirmed the death at the outlet but did not disclose a cause.

Garson has become a familiar face to the millions who have watched HBO’s “Sex and the City,” in which he played talent agent Stanford Blatch, best friend to Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw. He reprized his role in both films and had been filming for the network’s upcoming revival series, “And Just Like That,” Variety reported.

In addition to his work on the show, Garson starred as the con artist Mozzie in USA Network’s “White Collar” from 2009 to 2014. The versatile actor has also been a mainstay in numerous films, such as “Little Manhattan”, “There’s Something About Mary”, and “Groundhog Day”.

In 2009, Garson adopted his son, Nathen, and has continued to be a strong adoption advocate.

Nathen commemorated Garson on instagram Tuesday.

“I love you so much dad. Rest in peace and I’m so happy that you got to share all of your adventures with me and that you 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,” he wrote.
