‘I wish he was here,’ actor said through tears
Garson, who played Stanford Blatch on the US TV series, died of pancreatic cancer in September aged 57.
Davis and Cynthia Nixon appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (7 December) night, where they were asked how they would remember Garson.
Holding onto Davis’s hand, Nixon said that Garson could “lighten any situation”, saying: “He was a person with incredible stories, show business stories and stories about his own zany life.”
Davis said that their co-star was “full of joy and so incredibly brilliant and smart”, adding that even during his illness, which the cast had not originally known about, “he still brought so much joy and fun”.
Nixon said that when they were told that he was ill, they had a few days to talk with him about it, with Davis blinking back tears.
“But it’s hard,” Davis said. “I wish he was here, you know?”
And Just Like That comes to HBO Max in the US and Sky Comedy and Now in the UK on Thursday 9 December.
