Kapamilya actor Joshua Garcia expressed gratitude for his friendship with Kapamilya love team Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla during the media conference for the Kapamilya series Viral: Scandal on October 19.
Garcia recalled how Bernardo and Padilla helped him throughout the pandemic.
“Sila kasi ‘yung nandoon para sa akin, especially noong nag-pandemic. Nakakulong lang ako palagi sa kwarto hindi kasi ako mahilig lumabas eh. So, ang laking tulong ‘yung ginawa nila na lumalabas kami, ang dami naming activities na ginagawa.”
He then noted how lucky he is to have the real-life couple as friends and thanked KathNiel for all the times they were there for him.
“Sila rin kasi ‘yung nandiyan noong time na may problema ako, sila ‘yung nandiyan para sa akin. Hindi sila nawala kahit na aminado ako, wala ako. Sobrang pasasalamat lang, sobrang grateful lang na nandiyan sila para sa akin. Sobrang swerte ko na naging kaibigan ko sila.”
Earlier, Garcia trended on social media after group photos of him with Bernardo and Padilla surfaced on social media. Later on, Garcia revealed that KathNiel saved him from drowning in loneliness during the pandemic.
