"It's been unbearable": Sarah Jessica Parker finally breaks silence on fallen co-star

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has broken her silence on the death of her friend and Sex and the City co-star Willie Garson. 

Willie died on September 21st after a battle with pancreatic cancer. 

A flood of tributes poured in for the 57-year-old following the news of his death, with SJP saying at the time, "It's too soon". 

But on Friday, she penned an emotional tribute to her late friend, saying "It's been unbearable."

Her caption reads, “Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30+ year friendship.”

“A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.”

“Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together,” Parker’s post continued.

“I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls. Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface."

“My love and deepest sympathies and condolences to you dear Nathen. You were and are the light of Willie’s life and his greatest achievement was being your Papa."

“These were his last words to me. ‘Great bangles all around.’ Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. RIP. X, SJ,” she ended her post.

Along with the lengthy emotional caption, Sarah shared a series of photos of the pair from both on and off screen, as both colleagues and friends. 

The two had recently been working together on the set of And Just Like That..., in which Willie returned to his role as Stanford Blatch, Carrie Bradshaw's lifelong friend. 

Other Sex and the City alumni shared tributes to the actor, including Cynthia Nixon, executive producer of the show Michael Patrick King, and Willie's on-screen partner Mario Cantone.
