“I couldn’t have had a more brilliant TV partner. I’m devastated and just overwhelmed with Sadness. Taken away from all of us way soon. You were a gift from the gods sweet Willie. Rest …I love you,” Mario Cantone, who played Willie’s on-screen love interest in the Sex and the City movies, wrote on Instagram. Meanwhile, Evan Handler, who plays Charlotte York’s husband Harry Goldenblatt took to Twitter and said, “This is a tragedy for the entire #SATC #AJLT family, for Willie’s family, and for the world.
