Dear Other Self star Jodi Sta. Maria shares that there's no big difference in her working experience with the younger actors Joseph Marco and Xian Lim compared to working with Ian Veneracion and Richard Yap whom she worked with in the movie The Achy Breaky Hearts.
“Kasi ’pag sinabi mong bata, parang child star, do’n papunta,” Jodi shares.
“Pero hindi ko talaga kasi ma-consider sila na parang mga bata. Though sa age, oo, mas bata sila sa akin. Pero I think, ’yung level of maturity naman nitong dalawang lalaking ito ay hindi naman nalalayo sa akin. ’Yun lang siguro ang masasabi ko,” she added.
Jodi admits she did not do a lot of adjustments working with her recent leading men.
“Ay, hindi, alam mo, sobrang blessing nga, eh, kasi pinadali nilang dalawa ’yung trabaho ko.
“Kasi dumarating sila sa set na alam na nila ’yung gagawin nila and I think, professionalism is very important.
“So, nasa sa kanila naman ’yung quality na ’yun,”says Jodi.
She described Marco as the serious type when it comes to his work and always comes to the set ready and she is really happy about his attitude at a young age.
As for Xian, Jodi sees him as cute and child like but not childish.
