Actor Joshua Garcia celebrated his seventh anniversary in showbiz yesterday by posting the sweetest throwback photos on Instagram! For the caption, he wrote: "I miss acting so much, and I hope everything goes back to the way it used to be. Stay safe everyone, and I love you all."
In the photos, we see him in past roles, with co-stars like Nora Aunor and his The Killer Bride partner Janella Salvador, and during mall shows. The last photo shows Joshua with his head bowed on the set of the "Paubaya" music video.
Supportive comments from fans and friends in the industry flooded Joshua's post. Seven years is TRULY something to celebrate! There's one thing many commenters noticed though: Joshua's former love team partner Julia Barretto wasn't in any of the photos. Some netizens believe that this was deliberate and they told Joshua that he can "shine on his own" and that he should "believe you deserve nothing but the best." Another wrote: "Don't worry, parating na yung deserve mo talaga."
Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto's history
Julia and Joshua, previously known as the love team JoshLia, revealed that they had broken up in June 2019, saying that they were now "best of friends." At that time, there were rumors that Gerald Anderson was the cause of their separation, but they both denied this. In February 2021, Joshua and Julia appeared in a music video for Moira Dela Torre's single "Paubaya." In March 2021, Gerald revealed that he was in a relationship with Julia.
Most recently, in his show The Best Talk, Boy Abunda talked about a "fun" conversation he had with Julia. "Sabi niya, 'Alam mo Tito Boy, yung pagiging magkaibigan namin ni Joshua is at its best. We're very very good friends.'" Tito Boy shared. "Ang nakakatawa daw, siya na ang nagbibigay ng payo ngayon kay Joshua: 'Joshua, 'wag ka muna mag-girlfriend. Mag-concentrate ka sa trabaho mo.' Because she sees how passionate and how driven Joshua Garcia is as an actor."
