Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto recently reunited for the mini movie "LoveUNlock : E-numan" and most of us were surprised by that reunion. And you know who else was surprised? Joshua himself.
In a story by PEP on Monday, August 31, Joshua admitted that he didn't expect that he would get to work with his former love team and ex-girlfriend again so soon. He said, "Hindi ko in-expect na agad-agad na magkaka-work kami [ulit]. Maliit lang ang industriya, magkakatrabaho at magkakatrabaho kami. Pero hindi pa ngayon."
In spite of past issues, the pair have stated that they are on good terms and are "the best of friends," so working together again was a breeze.
Joshua said, "Sa akin naman, wala namang kaso, kasi okay naman kami ni Julia. Wala naman kaming problema."
"LoveUNlock: E-numan" was filmed entirely during the pandemic. Joshua said the production was extra difficult because apart from being actors, they had to work "behind the cameras," too.
"Mahirap, putol-putol. Kung kaya naming i-diretso na walang nagkakamali, madali. Kung may nagkamali, ulit. Mahirap, kasi parang dalawang camera—webcam, then phone. Then, kami rin audio man, parang kami lahat gagawa. Kami rin aarte. Halos hindi na kami nakapagkumustahan. Work lang talaga."
Their mini-movie premiered last August 15, and Joshua is extremely proud of his team.
"Bilib ako, kasi siyempre we survived. Natapos namin. Very creative kami that time. Nag-quarantine, bahay-bahay lang lahat," he shared.
