The cast of noontime show It’s Showtime took a moment to honor Eddie Garcia in the wake of his death this Friday.
TV host Vice Ganda, who was Eddie’s co-star in the comedy film The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin, led the tribute by remembering his memories with the late veteran actor.
“Mula doon sa araw na nag-storycon kami, dire-diretso na hanggang ngayon, naging apo niya na ako. Tuwing magkikita kami, ang tawag niya sa akin ay ‘apo, Benjamin.’ At ang sarap-sarap sa pakiramdam na nagkaroon ako ng lolong si Eddie Garcia... Isang malaking karangalan sa akin 'yon,” said the comedian.
Meanwhile, singers Zsa Zsa Padilla, Erik Santos, Karylle, Randy Santiago, and Kyla paid homage to the screen legend by performing a touching number. Fellow host Anne Curtis offered a prayer in loving memory of Eddie.
Eddie was declared dead by the Makati Medical Center on Thursday at 4:55 p.m. after suffering from a neck fracture due to an accident. He was 90.
Many personalities from showbiz have since flocked to social media to pay tribute to the former Ang Probinsyano star, including Sharon Cuneta, Judy Ann Santos, and Coco Martin.
