Yesterday on The Buzz, Jodi Sta. Maria admitted that she thought she will only be having supporting roles on every project. But ABS-CBN gave her a morning series, Be Careful With My Heart, that can be said to be her first leading role ever.
“Dumating po ako sa ganung point. Kumbaga tanggap ko na na hanggang dito na lang ako, pang-support lang talaga,” Jodi said. “Kumbaga lahat ng nangyayaring ito hanggang ngayon hindi ko pa rin… kumbaga panaginip lang sa akin hanggang ngayon. ‘Yun na nag-mindset ako eh. Pero minsan sumasagi sa isip ko na malay mo isang araw magkaroon, makatisod ako ng (lead) role.”
Jodi said she never felt bad that she wasn’t able to have major roles before.
“Di naman magkakaroon ng pain kung tanggap mo na naman, eh. ‘Yung nangyari ngayon siguro po parang everything fell into place,” paliwanag pa niya. “Kumbaga ‘di naman po talaga siya pinilit. God is good all the time. Sinasabi nila na a fruit tastes better and sweeter when it’s ripe and right. Good things come to those who wait.”
Jodi didn’t expect Mr. Boy Abunda’s question for her. She was given a situation that what if Thirdy, her son, asked her if she is dating Jolo Revilla.
“Honest po ako sa anak ko.”
Jodi’s answer was safe. Boy’s follow-up question was how important is Jolo to her?
“I would say na he is someone special right now. Hanggang dun na lang po muna,”
