Ginamit ng premyadong director na si Joey Reyes ang kanyang Facebook account para i-post ang galit at kalungkutan sa sinapit ni veteran actor/director Eddie Garcia sa taping ng isang teleserye.
Ani Direk Joey, isang “wake up call” ang nangyari kay Manoy Eddie.
“I am sad. I am angry,” simulang post ng director.
Patuloy niya, “Even at 90 years of age, Eddie Garcia took pride in taking care of his health, remaining useful & exemplary in his profession & unselfish to his peers.
“He is a living treasure together with Gloria Romero, Anita Linda, Gina Pareño & so many others who have proven that talent rather than looks is paramount to artistry & not mere celebrity. They are immortals in a business of disposables.
“These tragic turns of events SHOULD be a wake up call to all especially those responsible for the everyday mechanics of running a film shoot or TV taping. Training, discipline & dedication to efficiency not merely getting the work done affects everybody on the set.”
Dapat din daw na may managot sa nangyari sa beteranong aktor.
“WE MUST LEARN AND BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS,” pagdidiin pa niya in capital letters.
Samantala, patuloy ding nanawagan ng dasal ang director para kay Manoy Eddie.
“More prayers for Eddie Garcia, please. For a man of such exemplary professionalism, we owe him not only our admiration but our love.
“For a man who has given his entire life to his art, we will never leave his side regardless and whatever. We are all holding your hand, Manoy,” post pa niya.
