Joshua Garcia denies deliberately imitating John Lloyd Cruz’s acting.
On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Vince and Kath and James star Joshua Garcia talked about why his acting is similar to that of John Lloyd Cruz’s. “Tito Boy kasi hindi ko rin alam kung bakit ganun e pero kasi ako kinikilig pag sinasabihan akong ganun. Pero honored ako, masaya ako na darating naman yung time na marerecognize naman nila ako as Joshua Garcia.”
Asked if he will change the way he acts, Joshua said, “wala po akong babaguhin, kung ano po talaga ako.”
He stressed there is no conscious effort to mimic John Lloyd’s acting. “Wala, wala,” but that, “mahilig talaga ako manuod ng mga movies niya.” He said his favorite is My Amnesia Girl.
Asked if he and Julia Barretto are already an item, he said, “sa ngayon, work talaga kami pero importante kasi dun may care kami sa isa’t isa at mahal namin ang isa’t isa.” He added, “nandudun pa kami sa getting to know stage.” Is he courting Julia? He answered, “hindi pa. Wala pa akong lakas ng loob manligaw.”
He admitted given the chance he would tell Julia “mahal na mahal kita pero sana mahintay natin ang sa isa’t isa.”
On Fast Talk, he gave his hypothetical future project with Julia a title, “dream talaga namin ito ni Julia-- Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita.”
One word to describe Julia, he said after much musing is, “sweet.”
