Joshua Garcia celebrated his 23rd birthday on Wednesday, October 7.
"Happy 23rd Birthday to this guy! Cheers," captioned the actor to photos of himself on Instagram.
In a conversation with Erich Gonzales for her YouTube vlog, Joshua said he plans to mark his special day quietly with his family as he revealed that he is not the type who celebrates birthdays growing up.
“Nakalakihan ko nang hindi nagse-celebrate ng birthday. Last akong nag-celebrate, sa Jollibee, pa-party ng fans ko. Pero 'yung ako 'yung maghahanda na party ko, 'yun ang hindi ko kaya,” said Joshua.
He also shared his top three wishes as he turned 23.
“Una siyempre maging okay na lahat para makabalik na sa trabaho tayong lahat. Pangalawa is sana maging healthy 'yung family ko hanggang sa matapos ang lahat ng ito. And ma-achieve ko ang goals ko,” he said.
“Marami akong goals. Makatapos nang pag-aaral, makapagtayo ng sariling business. Sa showbiz, ang goal ko is to leave a mark in everything I do. Sa lahat ng ginagawa ko, kahit isang scene lang, mag-leave ng mark,” he added.
Joshua is considered one of the best actors of his generation. He ventured into acting after joining the ABS-CBN reality show "Pinoy Big Brother" in 2014.
He is best known for his roles in the primetime series "Ngayon at Kailanman" and "The Good Son," as well as films "Vince and Kath and James" and "Love You To the Stars and Back."
Prior to the lockdown due to COVID-19, it was already announced that Joshua will return on the big screen via “Ang Mga Kaibigan Ni Mama Susan," which marks his first movie in a solo lead role.
Directed by Chito S. Rono, the movie adaptation of Bob Ong's horror-mystery novel is an official entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.
