Always in His Heart. On the one-year mark since Willie Garson’s passing, Matt Bomer paid tribute to his old White Collar co-star.
I miss this man. On September 21st, the 44-year-old actor sent a message on Instagram. Willie, I will always love you.
A collection of images from the Magic Mike actor’s time on White Collar with Garson were posted online. In the USA Network series from 2009 through 2014, the pair portrayed Neal Caffrey and Mozzie, respectively.
One admirer responded to Bomer’s sincere comment by saying, “He was a fantastic actor and you two were one of my fave friendships on tv.”
A different supporter wrote, “These pictures bring back fantastic memories of seeing you both on screen together. Still one of my favorite TV shows ever.
After a covert fight with pancreatic cancer, Garson passed away on September 21, 2021, at the age of 57.
On Wednesday, Nathen, the late actor’s son, shared a few pictures from their shared life along with a message to his father.
“Wow. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since this handsome, balding man who I could proudly call my father went away. In addition to his head, I believe that I miss his laugh and grin the most,” he said in an Instagram post.
“Because I was aware that he was frequently joined in by others while they were laughing. He had the ability to converse with anyone he met and make them laugh or awkwardly smile at a joke he had probably just told them.
According to Nathen, who Garson adopted in 2010, “He wasn’t just my father, he was my best friend and a mentor before I even knew what that meant. When I was younger, he motivated me to do more than I ever believed I was capable of, and as a result, I constantly strive to improve. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be where I am now. If not for him, I wouldn’t be who I am.
Life “comes and goes much too quickly,” the 21-year-old said, before urging his followers to “cherish everyone and say hey to a stranger every once in a while because you never know when you could meet your next best friend.” “My dad and I met that way,” he continued. Dad, thanks for all the lessons.
The emotional post received a prompt response from Bomer, who said, “Nathen, this is amazing. I really, really miss him. He had the unique ability to make me smile and feel seen. He must be overjoyed at the young man you have become, I know it. You have a lot of today.
On Nathen’s difficult day, Kristin Davis, who costarred with Garson in the television series Sex and the City, wrote, “Oh Nathen sending you all of our love! I sense him with us today as we will all be together. I recall all the jokes he cracked when we did all of these things together previously. You’re welcome for this.
On Wednesday, Davis — who co-starred with Garson as Stanford Blatch in the HBO series and its 2021 sequel And Just Like That — reposted Nathen’s statement on her own social media page. Davis also played Charlotte York.
“@Willie.Garson is someone we’ll miss. Particularly today,” the 57-year-old actress emphasized on her Instagram Story. @Nathen Garson, I love you.
