Jodi Sta. Maria may not be as vengeful as her character Dr. Jill Ilustre in “The Broken Marriage Vow,” but as it turns out, they still share quite a few similarities!
During the media conference for the series’ finale yesterday, June 6, Jodi revealed that portraying Jill proved to be a huge challenge for her. Playing Dr. Jill enabled the veteran actress to hone her acting prowess in an unprecedented way.
“‘Yung character ni Jill Ilustre would probably be one of the hardest roles I’ve done in my life and ‘yung challenge na in-offer nung role,” she said.
“‘Yung depth, ‘yung pagiging multi-layered nung character, I believe (that) really pushed me as an actor and made me realize and discover na ‘Ah, okay. Meron pa pala. Kaya pa palang isagad. Pwede pa pala ‘tong gawin. So dahil sa kanya naniniwala ako na mas nag-grow dun sa craft ko,” she expounded.
When asked about Jill’s traits that she identifies as her own, Jodi said they are both “loving, caring, and selfless” mothers.
She answered, “‘’Yung lahat gagawin para sa anak niya. I think ganun naman dapat kapag nanay ka, ‘yung may pagka-Superwoman ka. Syempre okay lang mapagod pero ‘yung talagang gagawin mo ang lahat sa abot ng makakaya mo.”
“The Broken Marriage Vow,” starring Jodi, Zanjoe Marudo, and Sue Ramirez, is down to its last three weeks! It airs every weeknight at 9:20 PM on iWantTFC, Viu, Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, and Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
