Jodi Sta. Maria has been in the showbiz industry for almost two decades already. Despite playing numerous characters already, the actress still has a role she has yet to tick off her list.
“I want something that is off beat, something that is not me, something that is different. I don’t mind embarking on a role na parang kontrabida someone who is very dark,” she said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.
Jodi is no stranger to the “kontrabida” role. In the hit teleserye Pangako Sa ‘Yo starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, she played Amor Powers, a woman out for revenge.
According to the 30-year-old Kapamilya star, the artist’s role should not be limited to a project.
“I am an actor. As an actor, you are given different kinds of roles. Me kasi, I would always want to welcome a challenge. I want a role that will scare me na parang to the point na I would even doubt myself, na ‘Can I actually do this? Can I portray this correctly?’ I want those kinds of roles. Parang I’m not limiting myself to lead roles lang,” Jodi explained.
Jodi is producing and topbilling My Single Lady, a digital movie by iWant.ph, with Zanjoe Marudo and Ian Veneracion.
