Jodi talks about this ‘first’ she did for ‘Dear Other Self’

Jodi Sta. Maria’s characters in the 2016 box office hit “The Achy Breaky Hearts” and in the upcoming film “Dear Other Self” are very different, but she cited some similarities that people might notice with them.
 
Aside from both characters being good-spirited, Jodi gave an equal amount of commitment and hard work for the two.
 
“Siguro talagang sa mga nabibigay na role, nagswa-swak lang din doon sa character and talagang kasi ‘yun din naman talaga 'yung hinihingi ng character, so siyempre ibibigay mo kung ano 'yung hinihingi and I think from ‘Achy Breaky [Hearts]’ and now here to ‘Dear Other Self,’ it’s the same level of commitment and hard work na binibigay natin,” she said in an interview yesterday, April 19.
 
Just like in “The Achy Breaky Hearts” with Ian Veneracion and Richard Yap, Jodi has two leading men in “Dear Other Self,” namely Kapamilya hunks Xian Lim and Joseph Marco.
 
Jodi, Xian, and Joseph flew to Thailand to shoot some scenes for the film and got to bond on the set.
 
“'Yung character ni Becky nag-travel do'n. Masaya siya pero sobrang init nga lang. Meron kaming isang scene do'n kung saan nakalaro namin 'yung elephant, pinaliguan namin siya, so it was a different experience para sa film. And first time din ako nakapag-shoot ng pelikula outside the country,” Jodi shared.
 
“Nakakatuwa naman sila, masaya sila katrabaho, magaan sila katrabaho,” she added. “Siguro nakatulong din before naming ginawa 'yung pelikula meron din kaming mga workshops na pinagdaanan ni Joseph, mga acting workshops na ginawa. So kahit papaano, may mga walls man na na-break na ‘yun, dun pa lang.”
 
For fans of Xian and Joseph, a showdown of abs should be expected.
 
“’Yun yung isang aabangan nila. Paramihan ng pandesal!” Jodi said.
 
Directed by Veronica Velasco, “Dear Other Self” is set to be released soon this year.
