Maituturing na isa sa matibay na haligi ng local showbiz industry si Eddie Garcia bilang isang aktor at direktor.
Pinatunayan ni Eddie o mas kilala sa tawang na “Manoy” ang hindi kumukupas niyang dedikasyon at pagmamahal sa sining ng pelikula at telebisyon.
Ipinanganak si Eduardo Verchez Garcia noong May 5, 1929 sa Sorsogon. Nakagawa ng lagpas sa 300 na pelikula simula ng maging aktibo sa showbiz taong 1948.
Gumanap sa iba't ibang papel mapa bida, kontrabida, maton at kahit na miyembro pa ng LGBT community.
Hindi din mabibilang ang mga parangal na kanyang natanggap sa mga kasamagan sa Industriya, isa si Manoy sa kabilang sa hall of fame ng FAMAS awards bilang lead actor, supporting actor at Direktor.
Kaya naman, taos puso ang pagmamahal at pagtingala ng kanyang mga ka trabaho na nakakasama sa kanyang mga proyekto.

I just saw this...My dear God, it is so hard to accept this...I love you, my Direk, my Tito Eddie...Thank you for all that you gave me, us...It is truly the end of an era. Hindi na maaaring ibalik ang napakaganda at kagalang-galang na kagandahan ng showbiz noon...Kokonti na lang ang mga artistang “old school” na napakalaki ng kontribusyon sa industriya at sa puso ng bawat Pilipino, at marunong trumato ng katrabaho ng tama, sikat man o “maliliit” ang tingin sa trabaho nila pero malaki naman talaga ang naibibigay sa ating mga artista. Maraming salamat po, Mr. Eddie Garcia. Walang sinuman sa showbiz ngayon o kahit sa mga ipanganganak pa ang puedeng umupo sa tronong iniwan ninyo...Mahal na mahal ko po kayo...May you rest in God’s arms and we, those who have had the privilege of working with you, shall remember all that you stand for, and do our best to keep your legacy alive, because you have made us all a part of it...💔💔💔 My heart is broken...
Such sad news for the whole industry.... Thankyou Sir Eddie Garcia for all the wisdom and positive energy you bring all the time. It was such an honor for me to work with you. You truly are an inspiration to all of us. The heavens crying for you. The one and only Eddie Garcia! #manoy
Rest well Soldier 🙌🏻 must respect .. -- Garcia spent his early years in Juban. After World War II, he was stationed as a military policeman in Okinawa, Japan. He was part of the occupation troops of the Philippine Scouts with the US Army for 3 years. However, in 1949, President Elpidio Quirino disbanded the troops. Garcia would have wanted to re-enlist for the US Army, but he got sidetracked and joined the movies instead.
