Joshua Garcia admitted that being paired up with Anne Curtis in the Filipino adaptation of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” will be a “challenge” for him, but he’s confident that he would find his stride in the days to come.

Garcia was earlier confirmed to star as Patrick “Patpat” Gonzales in the remake, who is the local counterpart of Kim Soo-hyun’s character Moon Kang-tae.


Speaking in an interview with entertainment journalist MJ Marfori via Tiktok, the actor said he would feel challenged working closely with Curtis and admitted to being shy when they were asked to look at each other in a press conference earlier.


“I think macha-challenge ako with Anne, [‘yung titigan] pa nga lang hindi ko magawa. [Pero] feeling ko sa umpisa lang,” he said. (I think I’ll be challenged with Anne. I can’t even look at her. But I think this would just happen in the beginning.)

Garcia said he’s counting on the workshops and filming days to be more comfortable with the “It’s Showtime,” although he remained mum on the details of the remake.

“Kapag dumaan na ang ilang araw, mag-workshop na kami, and of course, makakasama ko na siya everyday, feeling ko masasanay rin ako,” he said. (When the days go by, we go through workshops, and be together every day, I’ll eventually get used to it.)

Meanwhile, Curtis said at a project announcement media con that she has been a fan of the series for a long time and always wanted to take on the female lead role.

Also one of the leads is Carlo Aquino who will portray Matthew “Matmat” Gonzales or the Filipino counterpart of Moon Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se). The character will be the brother of Garcia in the series, who is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
