Joshua Garcia used to survive on a 10-peso daily allowance during his first years in high school.
Speaking on Tonight with Boy Abunda, the Ngayon at Kailanman lead actor narrated how he would never spend a cent of his ‘baon’ so that he could give his then high school girlfriend a gift. “Kapag monthsary na, bibili na ako sa mall ng silver na kwintas at pendant para may pang regalo na.”
The actor also shared how happy he is now because he can now take Ngayon at Kailanman co-star Julia Barretto on a proper date.
His successful acting career also brought Joshua things that he once dreamed of as a teen including a computer, a cellphone, and a car. “Tambayan ko dati computer shop, pero nanunuod lang ako Tito Boy dahil wala ako panlaro (pera)… kaya alam mo yun masarap lang sa feeling na yung mga hindi mo magawa nuon, nagagawa mo na, nabili mo pa.”.
Joshua plays Inno, a young man born and raised in a privileged family in Ngayon at Kailanman which premieres August 20 after Ang Probinsiyano
