Social medias were flooded with posts about Joshua Garcia's performance on the Friday, March 23 episode of "The Good Son."
The actor shared that he made sure he is ready for the intense scene where he was lauded for his superb acting.
According to the him, all his sacrifices is worth it.
“Ako pakiramdam ko after nong successful na scene na ‘yun is worth it siya kasi pinaghirapan ko ng sobra ‘yun. Hindi ako makausap ng lahat, hindi ako nakakain, sobrang worth it. After nong scene na ‘yun nagpuyat ako, ginawa ko lahat ng gusto ko, nag-computer ako. Sobrang worth it,” said Joshua.
In an interview with PUSH, he expressed how happy he is for the outcome and is hoping that more viewers will be convinced to watch out for the series especially its finale which will happen in three weeks.
“Masaya ako para sa show kasi isa siya sa mas makakatulong para tangkilikin ng mga tao ‘yung show namin. Tapos para po mas marami ang mag-abang sa finale namin. Malapit na po ‘yan tatlong linggo na lang po,” he said.
When asked about where he drew his emotion for the scenes, he revealed it was just all based on his character in the show as he had not experience something as extreme in real life.
“Sa character kasi as Reyes family may nabuo na kaming pamilya eh. Tapos siyempre kung may mawawala isipin mo lang na totoong nagyayari ‘to, so ganon ‘yung naging reaction ko. Nandodoon naman ‘yung script para i-guide ka, eh nandon ‘yung director mo para i-guide ka, pero ako para sa akin sa character ako humuhugot more than sa personal kasi wala namang nangyari sa akin na ganon,” said Joshua.
The actor also invited the viewers to watch out for more exciting twist as his character would have more revelations.
“After nong nangyaring ‘yun, abangan niyo ‘yung maraming rebelasyon sa character ko, maraming pagbabago. Mas magiging palaban na siya, na wala na siyang sini-sino,” he shared.
