People are simply amazed at how Joshua Garcia attained his stature as one of the country’s foremost leading men.
There were no shortcuts or hype-driven promotions to bring this young actor to the top. It’s his breathtaking talent that surely made everyone believe in him.
While we were charmed at his cute, boy-next-door persona from the time he first stepped in the Pinoy Big Brother House, we were just impressed by his natural craft.
We saw it first on the 2015 afternoon drama Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita?, and viewers were more than driven to watch him more. It also became a sign of phenomenal things to come for the Bauan, Batangas native.
And that high point came when he got lead credits in the movie “Vince and Kath and James,” where he was first noticed as a promising actor and first crossed paths with Julia Barretto, with whom a “chemistry” was unmistakable.
Joshua would then demonstrate his stupendous acting chops on the riveting drama The Greatest Love, wherein he showed depth and brilliance in keeping up with longtime luminaries. He would connect to viewers with his deeply felt portrayals, and succeed in delivering the essence of the character he plays.
Joshua would further exhibit this in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode “Bituin,” wherein he broke everyone’s hearts with his tragic fate in his genuine love for his ill girlfriend.
His link to Julia would prosper, not only professionally with yet another blockbuster “Love You To The Stars And Back” that further launched their JoshLia love team to the stratosphere, but personally as well with an offscreen romance that thrilled their fans.
Joshua’s succeeding team-ups with Julia in the films “Unexpectedly Yours” and “I Love You Hater” made him a matinee attraction. Now, with their current primetime drama, Ngayon at Kailanman, their first teleserye together, both complement each other in scaling up their performances as actors.
Indeed, Joshua has more to achieve and we’re more than exalted to see him flourish in his reel-to-real relationship with Julia, but in his individual journey as well as a breathtaking actor.
And of course, who would not fall for his boyish charm and irresistible smile? Check these snaps to find out why.
