With their first series together Viral Scandal all set to start this coming November 15, Joshua Garcia and Charlie Dizon said that they can’t wait for viewers to see what they’ve all been working on during the past year.

“Sobrang excited na ako kasi finally e-ere na kami. Na-excite ako para sa buong team kasi nakita ko talaga yung pagod nila nung buong cycle namin. Nasa labas kami lahat nagtratrabaho sa bubble. Lahat ng hirap ng cast magbubunga na ngayon at mapapanuod na ng madla. Alam ko pinaghirapan nila ito para ma-entertain  yung mga tao kaya sobrang excited na ako na makita ng mga tao yung trabaho na ginawa namin,” Joshua shared during the Viral Scandal mediacon last November 11.

“Siyempre nakakakilig yun na ma-compare kami kay John Lloyd and Bea pero nakakahiya din pag nalaman nila yun (laughs). Nahihiya ako sa kanila. pero siguro thankful ako na yun ang nakikita ng mga tao. Pero at the same time nakaka-pressure din and sana makita din nila kami bilang Charlie at Joshua,” Charlie admitted.

Even when he first started in showbiz as an actor, Joshua admitted he has already gotten used to people likening him to John Lloyd Cruz.

“Ilang beses ko na kasi narinig yun eh. Deja vu yung feeling. Kung sakali na ganun talaga iniisip nila, well siyempre thankful ako dahil siyempre mga mabibigat na artista yun di ba, kilala sa larangan ng pag-arte yun. So dun pa lang masaya na talaga ako. Ayun lang naman masasabi ko,” he said.

Charlie said that even though she has been a solo artist since joining the cast of Bagani in 2018, she would be proud to be in a love team with Joshua.

“Yes why not kasi si Joshua nakakatulong naman talaga siya. Ang dami kong naka-partner and lahat rin talaga sila naging mabait sa akin and naging giving. Lalo na nung nagsisimula pa ako, lahat ng naka-partner ko talaga tinulungan ako kahit hindi nila ako ka-love team talaga tinulungan [nila] ako. Kaya ang hirap sabihin kung sino ang the best pero sa ngayon talaga siyempre si Joshua yung ka-partner ko siya yung best talaga,” she added.
