Jodi Sta. Maria, like most superstars, started small in the film industry. She received minor roles and small recognition in the movies Oo Na, Mahal Na Kung Mahal, Anak, Bagong Buwan, Jologs. After a few more years, Jodi made an excellent move when she began to explore challenging roles in the industry of indie movies. She won acclaim with her brilliant performances in Third World Happy and Aparisyon. In 2016, after long years of patience, hard-work, and determination, Jodi appeared in her first leading role in a mainstream film when she top-billed the box-office hit romantic-comedy movie My Achy Breaky Heart with Ian Veneracion and Richard Yap. The movie proved to be successful, further cementing Jodi’s legacy.
