Those who have been following Dirty Linen actress Jennica Garcia, especially on Instagram, in the recent years could have probably spotted several snaps of her with her daughters Athena Mori and Alexis Severina as she chronicles their journey as an awesome threesome!
Despite being a single mom, she’s able to raise them and, at the same time, pursue her acting career and other endeavors – thanks to the inspiration and help that she seemingly gets from her mother, veteran actress Jean Garcia. With a 20-year gap between them, not to mention the youthful glow of Jean, the two can pass as sisters.
In a 2002 media interview, Jean recalled that she had Jennica when she was being launched to full stardom by Regal Films. Of course, that got her worried about her career. In pursuit of giving Jennica a comfortable life and bright future, she decided to go to Japan and worked there as performer for two and half years until the opportunity to star as Madam Claudia Buenavista in the 2000 soap opera “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” came that allowed her to return to the Philippines for good.
Since both of them have been in the same industry, the two already had a chance to appear in several projects together. But we love to see them more whenever they’re with one another off-cam. The two actresses share some of their cute and lovely moments together on Instagram, such as the ones we collated in this gallery.
This adorable mother-daughter tandem apparently loves to go on dates, may it be dining out or watching Korean dramas together. Whenever she’s at her Mama’s place, Jennica revealed in one of her posts that Jean makes sure to cook whatever is the best tasting in her fridge for her and to feed her with all the pasalubongs that her friends had given to her from their trips abroad.
Both of them have also been very supportive of each other’s endeavors, with the duo never failing to greet each other in every new milestone that they have and express their support in every project that they do. In fact, it was Jean who advised Jennica to try her luck in reaching out to ABS-CBN and ask for a possible project to Dreamscape Entertainment executive Deo Edrinal. And she succeeded in clinching the role of Lala Millado in the controversial primetime drama Dirty Linen.
Aside from the advice, encouragement, and talent she got from her Mama, Jennica was also fortunate to have her as her acting coach, as the younger Garcia disclosed that Jean actually helped her on that part wherein she had to do a sexy dance in Dirty Linen.
Fans of this well-loved mother-daughter tandem are looking forward to see them share the screen together someday.
But while waiting for it, let’s catch Jennica for now on Dirty Linen, weeknights after The Iron Heart on on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z, and TV5.
