Stars From Sex And The City You Didn't Know Died

"Sex and the City" is one of the most beloved television shows of all time. The series, which starred Sarah Jessica Parker as the iconic Carrie Bradshaw, also featured Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth, John Corbett, Jason Lewis, and many other talented actors. The series ran for 6 Seasons on HBO and was followed up by two feature films that saw the original cast return to reprise their roles, per Us Weekly.

In January 2021, Parker delighted fans when she announced that she would be stepping back into Carrie Bradshaw's expensive shoes for a "Sex and the City" reboot titled "And Just Like That." The show is set to feature other original members such as Nixon, Davis, and Noth. However, Cattrall's character Samantha Jones will be noticeably absent from the series. Parker later told Vanity Fair that she was thrilled to be returning to her famous character for a brand new chapter.

While fans will look forward to seeing some familiar faces return for "And Just Like That," there will be some original "Sex and the City" stars who sadly won't get the chance to enjoy the revival of the show.

Lynn Cohen, who played Magda, died in February 2020

Lynn Cohen warmed the hearts of "Sex and the City" fans as the character of Magda. The actress portrayed the character, who was the housekeeper of Cynthia Nixon's Miranda (via CNN). Over the years, Magda went from Miranda's employee to one of the only people that the New York City lawyer could trust. Magda became a beloved friend and member of the family and even helped Miranda and her husband Steve raise their son, Brady.

While she was best known for her "SATC" role, Cohen was an accomplished actress of the stage and screen, making multiple appearances on shows such as "Law and Order" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." Cohen also starred in films such as "Munich" and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Cohen passed away in February 2020 in New York. She was 86 years old. "Miranda's dear and necessary Magda. Our dear SATC colleague. Talent, grace, inspiration. RIP," Sarah Jessica Parker wrote following Cohen's death (via PopCrush).

Sex and the City fan-favorite Willie Garson died from pancreatic cancer in September 2021

While Lynn Cohen never got the chance to return for the "Sex and the City" revival, actor Willie Garson was happy to reprise his role as Carrie Bradshaw's dear friend, Stanford Blatch. Garson returned to reprise his character in the reboot "And Just Like That," but sadly died from pancreatic cancer in September 2021, just months before the premiere of the show (via People). He was just 57 years old at the time of his death.

"Willie Garson was in life, as on screen, a devoted friend and a bright light for everyone in his universe," a spokesperson for HBO/HBO Max said in a statement following the actor's passing (via People). "He created one of the most beloved characters from the HBO pantheon and was a member of our family for nearly twenty-five years. We are deeply saddened to learn of his passing and extend our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones." 

For her part, Sarah Jessica Parker called the loss of her friend and co-star "unbearable" (via TVLine).

Of course, fans will get to see Garson live on as Stanford in the "SATC" revival. However, he'll be greatly missed as viewers enjoy his final performance.
