Congressman Alfred Vargas will prioritize the National Artist Award for veteran actor Eddie Garcia who died after an accident happened while he was taping.

Eddie was supposed to have his comeback in the Kapuso network through the upcoming series Rosang Agimat. However, during their shoot last June 8, he accidentally tripped on a cable wire and fell.

After several days of being unconscious at the Makati Medical Center with minimal brain activity, the 90-year-old actor passed away.
