Joshua Garcia said that he is not yet ready to do a kissing scene for The Good Son.
According to the 19-year-old actor, he wanted to prove his acting prowess in this ABS-CBN teleserye before doing these kinds of scenes.
He reasoned out, "Kada kasi may ginagawa ako, may goal ako, kung anong gusto kong i-execute sa gagawin ko.
"Parang hindi natin kasi masasabi kung may kissing scene, pero hindi pa ako ready dito. Parang may gusto akong patunayan dito."
In this upcoming ABS-CBN primetime series, which will air its pilot episode on September 25, he will figure in a love triangle with Loisa Andalio and Jerome Ponce.
However, in the movies, Joshua is more visible with Julia Barretto. Their tandem has been dubbed as the JoshLia love team.
He openly admitted that he is courting his leading lady in the movies Vince and Kath and James (2016) and Love You To The Stars and Back (2017).
Does this mean that Joshua needs to ask permission from Julia if ever he will do an onscreen kiss?
Laughing, Joshua said, "Magpapaalam ako sa kanya? Wala! Wala pa!"
One reporter then asked him if he wants Julia to be his first onscreen kiss.
He answered with a smile, "Oo naman, di ba!"
After the success of Love You To The Stars and Back, which has already earned P102 million in the box office, JoshLia fans are looking forward to their next project.
Joshua dropped hints: "Abangan natin kasi may soap kaming gagawin."
He clarified that it will be his next project after The Good Son.
