EXCLUSIVE: Joshua Garcia reveals he is not close to his mother


080816-JoshuaGarcia_PUSH.jpgIn his first solo role as Dimple Romana’s troubled son in The Greatest Love, Joshua Garcia shared he understands why he got offered a project without his perennial love team partner Loisa Andalio.

"Siguro para sa akin happy ako kasi pinag-go-grow nila ako ng mag-isa lang ako. Pero kahit ano naman desisyon ng management tatanggapin ko kasi work pa rin yun eh. Sila na lang magbibigay sa akin kung solo ba ako or may kasamang iba, okay naman ako dun,” he told PUSH.

The 18-year-old actor said that LoiShua fans should not get discouraged because he and Loisa have remained up to date with each other despite doing separate projects.

"Hindi na kami nakakalabas eh kasi busy siya sa trabaho niya, ako busy din ako sa trabaho. Siguro sa text or sa Viber ganyan pero hindi na kami masyadong nakakalabas. Busy pa siya eh (laughs),” he remarked.

In the family drama The Greatest Love, Joshua plays a character who feels closer to his grandmother (played by Sylvia Sanchez) than his mother. In real life, Joshua revealed the situation hits close to home.

"Opo, malalabas ko dito yun. Tama nga sa show eh. Kasi sobrang close ko din sa lola ko at sa kanya din ako lumaki. Hindi talaga ako close sa mama ko. So swak dun sa character. Same na same,” he shared.

In fact, Joshua said he would consider his dad as his greatest love because he grew up with him.

“Yung Papa ko sa kanya ako mas close. Siya yung namroblema sa akin simula nung bata ako. Kaya sobrang thankful ko dun,” he admitted.

Contrary to his quiet demeanor onscreen, Joshua divulged he is actually a joker in person.

"Siguro hindi nila alam yung pagiging makulit at saka yung nag-jo-joke ako ng wala sa lugar (laughs). Kumbaga basta na lang ako papasok at mag-jo-joke tapos corny (laughs). yun lang. Si DJ (Padilla) na-ko-korning corny sa akin yun eh. Yung mga jokes napapanuod ko lang din sa internet, nakikita ko lang. May impluwensiya rin yung social media sa akin,” he said.
