Joshua Garcia is not the next John Lloyd Cruz, or so says director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Direk Cathy has, of course, gotten the chance to work with the frequently-compared actors. She was behind the John Lloyd starrers "One More Chance" and "A Second Chance," as well as the "A Very Special Love" trilogy. She also recently helmed "Unexpectedly Yours" which united the tandems of Sharon Cuneta and Robin Padilla, and Julia Barretto and Joshua.
And still she maintains that the two actors both have their distinct styles, and are about as alike as apples and oranges.
Direk said, "John Lloyd will always be John Lloyd. No matter how good Joshua is, he can only be Joshua. Hindi kasi ako naniniwala doon eh sa mga 'next' kasi [magkaiba sila] eh! John Lloyd is incomparable, as much as Joshua is incomparable."
She continued, "Joshua has his own strengths. Joshua will make it on his own, kung itutuloy niya ang ugali niyang ganyan...magaling siyang bata!"
"Unexpectedly Yours" is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
