RIP, EDDIE GARCIA, 90


Multi-awarded actor-director Eddie Garcia passed away on Thursday, June 19 at 4:55 p.m. after suffering from a neck fracture, a hospital confirmed. He was 90.

He tripped and fell while shooting a TV series for GMA Network last June 8 and had been in critical condition. He was officially diagnosed with a severe cervical fracture and was placed on "do-not-resuscitate" status last June 15.

"We join the entire Filipino community in praying for the soul of Mr. Garcia and his dearly beloved family and friends," the Makati Medical Center said in a statement. Garcia left behind an impressive and unforgettable legacy in a showbiz career that spanned nearly 7 decades, with over 600 films to his name as an actor and film director.

His death came just days after he was awarded the Gawad Urian for best actor for his role as a delusional military officer who tortures students in the 2018 Cinemalaya movie, "ML."

 García was the most awarded and nominated person in the long history of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Awards. He garnered a total of 43 wins and 38 nominations (13 for Best Supporting Actor, 12 for Best Actor and 11 for Best Director). Out of these, he got six Best Supporting Actor wins, five Best Actor wins, five Best Director wins, three Hall of Fame Awards, one Lifetime Achievement Award and the Fernando Poe, Jr. Memorial Award. He was awarded his first FAMAS Award in 1957 and his last FAMAS, a Hall of Fame for Best Actor, in 2003. García was also the first actor to be inducted in the FAMAS Hall of Fame as Supporting Actor in 1975.

At the 55th Asia Pacific Film Festival, Garcia bagged the Asian Film Award for Best Actor for his role in "Bwakaw."
