Sarah Jessica Parker returns to work on And Just Like That after the death of castmate Willie Garson

Two-time Emmy winner Sarah Jessica Parker returned to work on the set of HBO Max’s And Just Like That on Monday following the death of her friend and castmate Willie Garson.

The grieving 56-year-old even cracked a smile while shooting a scene in a dress shop in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood.

Sarah was wearing a grey fedora and matching coat over a plunging grey cardigan, grey and red-striped skirt selected by former SATC costume associate Molly Rogers.

Parker finished off her look as the writer-turned-podcaster Carrie Bradshaw with a fancy pair of red mules and a brown leather cross-body bag. 

But there were also moments where the Invivo wine collaborator appeared more downcast and lost in her thoughts 

Joining Sarah on set was Homeland alum Sarita Choudhury, who portrays a new character called Seema Patel.

So far all we know about the British 55-year-old’s character is she drives in a Mercedes with vanity plates and, like Carrie, enjoys the occasional cigarette.

Last Friday, Parker broke her silence about the death of Garson, who passed away on September 21, at age 57, following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

‘It’s been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship,’ the Ohio-born mother-of-three wrote to her 7.2M Instagram followers.

‘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.

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'

‘Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. 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.’

Willie’s death was a double blow for Sarah, whose business partner George D. Malkemus III passed away, age 67, from cancer on September 16.

Parker famously co-founded her seven-year-old accessories brand SJP Collection with the former CEO of Manolo Blahnik, who’s survived by his husband Tony Yurgaitis.
