After Eddie Garcia’s death, Yassi Pressman reveals butterfly on set of ‘Ang Probinsyano’
Could the late, great Eddie Garcia have made his presence felt on the set of “Ang Probinsyano”?
Among the tributes to the acclaimed actor is that of Yassi Pressman who stars in the long-running action series “Ang Probinsyano.” Garcia portrayed villain Don Emilio/Senyor Gustavo in the TV show, which he left in February.
Pressman posted a video on Thursday, June 20, of a butterfly that paid a visit during a shoot of the teleserye.
“This was a very special moment on the set of [‘Ang Probinsyano’],” she said. “Kakabukas lang ng camera sa phone namin, [nang] biglang may paruparong hindi kami iniwan.”
(Our phone camera was just turned on when a butterfly came that did not leave.)
In the video, the actress can be seen next to veteran actress Susan Roces and lifting her hands up for the yellow butterfly.
In a number of cultures, including that of the Philippines, butterflies symbolize a person who passed away.
It was not mentioned what time the shoot took place. Garcia died at 90 at 4:55 p.m. on Thursday.
Pressman remembered the cinematic legend on Instagram with a video of Garcia dancing with “Ang Probinsyano” cast mates. Another post showed him with the teleserye’s cast, where she called him “one of the best” and thanked him for his lessons and stories.
