During her appearance on the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Kristin and co-star Cynthia Nixon to discussed the SATC reboot, And Just Like That, and Kristin broke down remembering the final days of filming with Willie.
The beloved actor, Willie Garson, died in September after a private battle with pancreatic cancer.

The star's voice cracked and she began to cry and choked: “It’s been hard.”
As she clutched onto Cynthia’s hand, she sobbed: “I wish he was here.”
Cynthia, 55, reflected that Willie was “a person with incredible stories” who lived a "zany life."
Kristen added that he was “full of joy and so incredibly brilliant and smart," even as he faced his cancer.
She continued: “Even being sick, which we didn’t know about in the beginning, he still brought so much joy.”
Cynthia said it was “important” for the cast to know about Willie’s illness as it got worse, so they could have a better understanding of what he was facing when they were filming the show.
Willie, who played Stanford Blatch on the hit show, tragically died at 57 years old after a secret battle with cancer.
Cynthia was amongst the first of his co-stars to pay tribute to her old friend. In a heartfelt post, she penned: "So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @Willie.Garson. We all loved him and adored working with him.
"He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional — always.
"My heart goes out to his son, @Nathen_Garson. Nathen, I hope you know how much he loved you and how proud he was to be your dad."
Soon after, Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, posted a series of photos on Instagram and wrote: "It's been unbearable. 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. 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."
She ended the tribute: "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."
Willie will appear in And Just Like That as he carried on filming the show throughout his final weeks of his life. In total, he starred in 27 episodes of the six seasons of SATC.
