Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Throughout his career, Willie Garson played many supporting parts, but his undeniable screen presence shined beyond the size of the role given him. The talented actor was rarely at a loss for work, appearing in over 200 TV episodes of a wide variety of programming. His unorthodox bald and bespectacled look won over fans most famously on the award-winning and provocative series, "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2004). For six very successful seasons, Garson played Carrie Bradshaw's (Sarah Jessica Parker) gay best friend Stanford Blatch. In a Manhattan sea of underwear models, sexy personal trainers and Wall Street hunks, Garson's charm and witty dialogue propelled him as one of the series' most beloved supporting characters, whether gay or straight.
