- A filmmaker spoke up about actor Eddie Garcia’s accident on the set
- He aired his message through a social media post
- The said filmmaker questioned why a senior actor was involved in action scenes
Perry Escaño, a veteran actor and filmmaker, decided to break his silence regarding the controversial accident that Eddie Garcia experienced recently.
KAMI learned that the latter is currently in critical condition after he stripped on a cable wire and eventually collapsed while shooting a Kapuso series.
According to the aforementioned director, it is not right to write or make action scenes that involve a senior actor because his safety will be put at stake.
He emphasized that Eddie is already 90 years old so getting involved in stunts or action scenes will not do him any good.
Perry stated through his Facebook post that he also wants the veteran actor to be recognized as a national artist due to his contributions to the film and television industry.
“Being a filmmaker myself, I will never write a script or direct a scene that will involve a 90-year-old actor or any senior artist doing stunts or performing action scenes. Safety first!” he wrote.
“Tito Eddie acted on more than 600 films and bagged 40 plus major acting awards as an actor and director… #EddieGarciaForNationalArtist,” he added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Philip Salvador exposed to public the recent conversation he had with Eddie.
Eddie Garcia, or Eduardo Verchez García in real life, is a multi-awarded Filipino actor who became an antagonist in the top-rating teleserye “Ang Probisyano.” He is already a hall of famer in FAMAS.
