After causing a splash online when he posted his first TikTok video last December, actor Joshua Garcia admitted he enjoys creating posts for his more than 6M followers on the popular social media app with his first video amassing more than 130M views already as of this writing. The 24-year-old actor revealed why he is starting to share more of himself online.
“Actually parang outlet ko yung TikTok eh. Masaya lang ako kasi parang dun nakikita ng mga tao yung mga kulit na side ko. Kasi usually sa teleserye drama drama, action action. Pero yung TikTok parang dun ko lang nilalabas yung kulit ko, yung mga gusto ko.
“Natutuwa ako dun sa mga dance challenge. Yung first ko yun yung pinaka unexpected kasi basta ko lang in-upload yun tapos hindi ko hinawakan yung telepono ko. Nung pagkakita ko, oh my God ang dami na tapos sabog na yung notifications,” he admitted.
Aware of how blessed he is to be doing consecutive projects in ABS-CBN like Viral Scandal and the upcoming Darna series, Joshua shared how he is able to balance work hard and getting enough rest.
“Actually sabihin na natin na back to back pero ang maganda kasi ngayon mga lock-in taping tapos may 12 hours na trabaho na lang. May time kami magpahinga talaga lahat and hindi siya tulad before na pagkagaling mo dito baklas ka sa kabilang trabaho. Hindi ganun eh. Mas maganda yung ngayon, mas smooth yung trabaho ngayon,” he shared.
During the Star Magic 30th All Star Games earlier this month, Joshua was seen hanging out with good friend Daniel Padilla who participated in the badminton event. The two actors were also present to show support during the volleyball and basketball events that day.
Of his friendship with the 2 Good 2 Be True star, Joshua said, “Masaya ako na nasa circle of friends ako na sila yung kasama ko. Sila yung parang mga kuyas at ate ko na nagpapayo sa akin sa showbiz. Masaya ako na kasama sila kasi good company talaga sila. Sila yung masasabi ko na talagang kaibigan ko sa showbiz,” he added.
