Coco Martin believes veteran actor Eddie Garcia will be able to survive his medical condition. Eddie Garcia got into a coma after an accident while he shooting his GMA 7 teleserye “Rosang Agimat”.
Coco and Eddie Garcia were co-stars in the longest running teleserye “Ang Probinsyano” before Eddie decided to return to GMA.
Eddie is currently in critical condition and his family recently signed a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) form.
Coco is one of those people who visited Eddie in the hospital to check up on him and pray for his recovery.
In an interview for “Rated K” Coco expressed his adoration for the veteran actor and how much he loved him. He also asked his Lolo Eddie not to give up just yet and that they are there to support and pray for him.
“Lo, alam ko kayang-kaya mo ‘yan. Alam ko po na kung ano man ‘tong nangyari sa’yo, alam ko na wala yan, malalampasan mo ‘yan. Huwag kang bibitiw, lagi kaming andito, nagmamahal sa’yo, humahanga sa’yo, at nagdadasal para sa’yo,” Coco said.
“Lahat kami nag-iintay sa’yo. Lahat kami nag-aabang ulit na magkasama ulit tayo sa trabaho sa lahat ng mga okasyon, sobrang mahal na mahal ka namin. Mahal na mahal ka ng industriya at ikaw ang inspirasyon naming lahat,” he added.
He reminisced the first time that they met on set as he specifically requested Eddie Garcia to be casted in his past teleserye “Juan Dela Cruz”
“Tapos nung nakita ko siya, nanginginig ako kasi nga parang sobrang tuwa na makakatrabaho ko ang Mr. Eddie Garcia. Napakasimple, tahimik… bilang artista, sa edad ni Tito Eddie, sobrang nabilib kaming lahat. Kasi siya yung tipong walang personal assistant, driver lang,” he recalled.
“Grabe yung pagmamahal niya sa trabaho, pagmamahal niya sa industriya. Yung pag-aalaga niya sa lahat ng mga proyektong ginagawa niya.” he shared.
Well, we also hope that the veteran actor recovers soon. All in God’s will!
