Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia are set to reunite this year as a love team in a new movie under production company Black Sheep. The actress revealed this in an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda which was posted on his YouTube channel.
The 26-year-old actress recalled the time she met the actor on Vince and Kath and James, the first movie that they acted in together. She would never forget their first film together as she felt it was just different from all the acting gigs she had previously done.
“I remember from the first day, after the first scene, I went back to the tent and told my team, ‘I’ve never felt this kind of chemistry with anybody that I’ve worked with. Good things will only come from here,’” she confessed.
The last time they acted as a love team was in Moira Dela Torre’s music video, “Paubaya”, which was released in February of 2021. Since then, the two have been moving forward and thriving in their individual careers. However, Julia and Joshua know how important their love team is to their fans so they can’t just give it up easily.
“That’s why we don’t give up on our tandem,” she revealed. Both of them also understand how good their onscreen chemistry is.
The actress also mentioned how they’re still in touch with each other and updated with each other’s love life. Julia advised Joshua not to be in a relationship just yet because of his career.
“He’s a brilliant actor. It’s not the time to be limited right now. I want him to really enjoy his time,” she told Boy Abunda. Joshua would ask her why but she would just tell him, “basta wag ka muna mag girlfriend.”
Julia also mentioned to Joshua how happy she is with her boyfriend, Gerald Anderson, and how she is lucky to have him in her life.
“I always tell him how lucky I am to be with somebody who can guide me in life, who can ground me, who can put sense in my head,” she added.
Julia and Joshua became a real-life couple but broke up in 2019. They still consider each other as best friends.
