Jodi Sta.Maria reveals what gives her fulfillment nowadays


050511-jodi_main.jpgJodi Santamaria will star in the teleserye 100 Days To Heaven where she plays Sophia, a scam artist. Jodi said that she is excited because she finds her role challenging. “Nakakatuwa kasi parang every now and then iba-iba ‘yung itsura ko.”

After getting one project after the other, the versatile actress explained that she is simply thankful that ABS-CBN continues to give her substantial projects. “I feel so happy [and] I’m so blessed na hindi natatapos ‘yung mga blessings na dumarating, kumbaga one after the other,” she began. Jodi added that it has already come to a point that she has to turn down other offers because she already has her hands full. “Andami pang dumarating na sometimes hindi mo na nga naa-accommodate, pero ayun nagpapasalamat ako tuluy-tuloy na blessings na dumarating.”

She pointed out that since she loves her profession, her work does not really feel like work to her. “Nakikita din naman ng mga tao, ng audience, ng production ‘yung passion and ‘yung love para sa trabaho. Iba kasi ‘yon, it shows talaga when you really love what you’re doing. Hindi siya trabaho para sa ‘yo. Of course huwag natin kakalimutan ‘yung nasa taas na patuloy na nagbibigay din.”

At present, Jodi said that she finds fulfillment in being a mother to son Thirdy and in being a recent high school graduate. She continued that being able to do her job well is also fulfilling. “Every time may ginagawa akong project, every time may bagong dumarating nagagawa ko nang maayos, fulfillment pa rin para sa akin ‘yon,” she related.

Jodi’s son Thirdy was also on the set with her recently, with his yaya looking after him whenever the actress needed to do her scenes. She said that he has been tagging along with her ever since he was just months old.  “Sinasama ko na talaga siya before pa. And nakakatawa pa, he does his own thing naman, eh,” she said. “Kunwari I’m practicing my line, andyan lang siya, he plays with the other kids, so hindi naman siya nagiging pabigat and nage-enjoy nga ako na alam ko na kasama ko siya kesa kunwari iiwan ko siya sa bahay.
