At the age of 9, Garcia started as an altar boy at St. James Parish Church Headed by Bro. Paul Abiog of Ayala, Alabang where they used to live. He served for several years until his family moved to Frisco del Monte, Quezon City. At the age of 13, his actress sister convinced him to try acting. He tried out for the 1994 Philippine movie, "Separada", and was cast right away. The movie was well received by the critics and became an instant hit, and also cemented Garcia's status as the newest young heartthrob in the Philippines.
A year later, Garcia landed many more roles in movies and soap operas, such as "Gimik", "Araw-araw, gabi-gabi", and "Asero" among others. Then in 1996, he received the Best Child Actor award at the FAMAS Awards, for his role as Ryan in the critically acclaimed Olivia M. Lamasan film, Madrasta.
After Madrasta, Garcia has been working steadily ever since, taking on more challenging character roles in movies, "Mano po III: My love", "Nagbibinata" and TV series "Captain Barbell", "Kampanerang Kuba" and "Super Twins".
