Bad boy rep aside, Joshua Garcia said that Robin Padilla was a pretty great influence on him as a young actor.
Joshua, who got to work with the legendary action star in the recently-released rom-com "Unexpectedly Yours", said that Robin swayed him into graciousness and compassion by example.
"Tito Robin is a very good example para sa lahat ng mga baguhang artista katulad namin kasi pagdating niya sa set, kahit pagod na pagod siya, babatiin niya lahat. Simula pinakamababa hanggang sa pinakamataas, babatiin niya lahat 'yun," the young actor said during his Digital Conference with on-screen leading lady Julia Barretto last night, November 6.
"Gumagawa siya ng relationship sa lahat at makikisama sa lahat, 'yun ang pinaka-the-best na natutunan ko sa kanya," he added.
"Unexpectedly Yours" tells the story of Patty (Sharon Cuneta), a proud and successful marketing executive in the midst of a midlife crisis, finds herself being reunited with her high school batchmate, the simple and humble seaman Cocoy (Robin Padilla), not only as organizers of their high school reunion but also as new neighbors.
And as Cocoy moves in next door, Yanni (Julia Barretto), Patty's headstrong daughter who is eager to leave and to live her own life, also meets his fun-loving nephew Jason (Joshua Garcia), who has been an avid follower of Yanni and her social media accounts.
Now, as both Patty and Yanni are undergoing big changes in their lives, how will things turn out when love unexpectedly comes their way?
The film, helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, is now on its second blockbuster week in cinemas.
