Edward Barber recalls violent experience with a fan: 'It was a punch'

Here's a testament to Edward Barber's optimism: the young actor was once throat-punched by a fan and to this day, still finds a reason to laugh about it.

In a recent exclusive interview, the "First Love" star recalled one of his first experiences being swarmed by a crowd of fans at a parking lot after performing at a mall show in Lucena. He revealed, "As in parang wave, talagang crowd. And we only had five marshals with us, and they locked arms around us. Para silang Spartans. It was like a war."

He continued, "So we ran to the car, but a few fans got through [the marshals] and one of them, and naalala ko slow motion, [natamaan niya ako sa] Adam's apple ko. And it was not a scratch, it was a punch."

According to Edward, his throat was in bad shape after the experience. He said, "So, they pushed me to the van, and I sat there [unable to breathe] kasi nahirapan ako huminga."

However, his sense of humor won in the end, and he recalls the "Throat Punch Incident in Lucena" as one of the funniest fan experiences he's ever had. He enthused, "It was so funny and I was fine in the end. just had a hard time speaking for a couple of hours [but] until now, we still laugh about time."

Watch the entire interview here:

Edward is part of Paul Soriano's upcoming romantic-drama "First Love" topbilled by Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo. Produced by Ten17P along with Star Cinema and Viva Films, it will hit cinemas nationwide tomorrow, October 17.
