Joshua Garcia and Dimples Romana are reuniting on television five years after their last drama series.
They are working together again in the upcoming ABS-CBN drama series Viral, which is top-billed by Metro Manila Film Festival 2020 best actress Charlie Dizon.
Dimples posted on Instagram a photo with Joshua during the first day of their lock-in taping and pictorial on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
In the caption, she wrote, “Aba Sino naman itong napakagwapong kasama na namin sa Cast ng Viral? @garciajoshuae
“who’s excited to see his acting chops again on a teleserye??? I know I am!!!
“Proud of you always. Can’t wait for you and @charliedizon_ to be in one scene together @rcdnarratives_abscbn”
Joshua replied in the comments section, “Thank you Ma [heart emoji]”
The last time Joshua and Dimples worked together in a TV series was in the 2016 afternoon drama The Greatest Love, where Joshua played Dimples’s son.
But their last project together was the action-suspense movie Block Z, which was shown in January 2020.
RCD Narratives, the unit producing Viral, has yet to reveal Joshua’s role in the teleserye.
But based on the first teaser released on social media, Dimples and Jake Cuenca will portray the parents of Charlie’s character, who will get involved in a viral video.
RCD Narratives’ social media accounts also shared some snapshots from the May 26 pictorial of Viral.
Charlie, Dimples, Jake, Joshua were all present during the pictorial with other members of the cast—Markus Paterson, Rommel Padilla, Maxene Magalona, Gian Magdangal, Kaila Estrada, Ria Atayde, Arielle Roces, Aljon Mendoza, Louise Abuel, Vance Larena, Karina Bautista, Aljon Mendoza, and Miko Raval.
Jameson Blake, who was first announced as Charlie’s leading man in Viral, was not around for the pictorial.
