Here’s How Janella Salvador Reacted After Finding Out Joshua Garcia Had a Crush on Her

Among all his leading ladies, who was it that Joshua Garcia had the biggest crush on in the entirety of his career? This was the question posed to the 24-year-old actor in the recent fundraiser event of ABS-CBN Network called “Truth Or Dare.” Allowing his friends from the industry who were also present at the fundraiser to answer for him, Joshua revealed that it had been his “The Killer Bride” costar, Janella Salvador.

His confession immediately went viral online which meant that there was no way that it wouldn’t reach Janella’s ears. However, the young actress surprised everyone with news of her own: that she had already known about Joshua’s crush on her, way back when they were still filming “The Killer Bride.”

Sinabi na naman niya ‘yon sa akin dati. Noong ‘Killer Bride’ pa, he told me at nakita ko din ‘yung ibang interviews niya dati. So napag-usapan na namin ‘yon ni Joshua,” Janella admitted to Ogie Diaz in his YouTube vlog last January 27.

[Translation: “He already told me before. When we were still taping for “The Killer Bride,” he told me and I also learned about it while watching his interviews. So Joshua and I have already talked about it.”]

She then shared how she appreciated Joshua for being respectful towards her despite his crush. At the time, Janella’s relationship with current boyfriend Markus Paterson was still kept under wraps though rumors about them being an item had already started to spread.

Natuwa ako sa kanya kasi ‘yung pagkasabi niya sa akin, he really respects me. So ‘yun ‘yung maganda kay Josh (I was pleased with him because with the way he told me about it, he really respects me. So that’s what’s great about Josh),” she continued.

She also said that they’ve remained “very good friends” and expresses hope that Joshua would eventually find the happiness he deserves.

Magiging masaya rin si Joshua. Deserve niya. (Joshua will eventually be happy. He deserves it),” she ended.
