Veteran actor Philip Salvador willingly exposed to public the conversation he had recently with fellow artist Eddie Garcia.
KAMI learned that the latter is currently in the hospital and in critical condition after he stripped on a cable wire and collapsed while shooting a Kapuso series.
Philip already expressed his sympathies for what happened and he also recalled his recent chat with Eddie in an interview with the Cabinet Files.
The actor stated that he and the former “Ang Probinsyano” cast member saw each other in the 35th Star Awards for Movies that was held on June 2.
They shared an award on stage and he even jokingly told Eddie that he looked good during that time.
According to him, there was a moment in the event when Eddie stood up and roamed around the venue to show people that he is still strong despite his age.
"Nagbibiruan pa kami sa stage. Sinabi ko sa kanya na, 'You are so handsome tonight,' na sinagot niya ng, 'I know about that,’” Philip quipped.
"Sa backstage, nakaupo siya sa silya at magkatabi sila ni Tita Glo [Gloria Romero], pero nang bibigyan na kami ng award, tumanggi siya na maupo sa silya. Talagang tumayo at naglakad siya para ipakita sa mga tao na malakas na malakas pa siya,” he added.
Meanwhile, Philip called on the fans of Eddie to continue praying for his speedy recovery.
"Hinihiling po namin sa inyo ngayon, dasal para sa isa pang Hari ng Pelikulang Pilipino, si Eddie Garcia," he concluded.
