Personal lifeEdit

Jodi is the younger of two children. She and her brother were raised by their single mother. She attended the Philippine Pasay Chung Hua Academy and was an honor student.[citation needed] In school, Sta. Maria was active in her school's extra-curricular activities, particularly the volleyball varsity team and the debating team. She married a politician, Panfilo Lacson Jr.,from whom she is now separated.[citation needed][citation needed] They had a son born in 2005.

Sta. Maria attended De La Salle University-Dasmariñas and studied Medical Biology as her prerequisite to studying Medicine.[citation needed] She left college after a year due to the sudden success of her serial Be Careful With My Heart, which was extended from its intended run of 3 months to 2 1/2 years.[1]

She has been a WHO Ambassador since 2011.[citation needed]

CareerEdit

A talent scout approached Sta. Maria and her friends to audition for commercials while at a fast food chain. After numerous auditions and no offers, they gave up. A few weeks later, the talent scout approached Sta. María once again and encouraged her to audition for Star Magic. At 15, she was one of the youngest in their batch.

After starring and appearing in teen-oriented shows and movies such as Gimik, Flames, and Jologs, Sta. Maria landed a role in Tabing Ilog as the tomboyish Georgina.[2] The show was successful and ran for four years.

She starred in the original version of Pangako Sa 'Yo (2000) as Lia Buenavista and the 2015 remake as Amor Powers.[3]

After playing teen roles, she played in primetime shows such as Walang Kapalit and Kampanerang Kuba. She transitioned to star in numerous independent films, which have been screened internationally. She has since received 2 Gawad Urian Award nominations.

In 2010, she starred in Noah alongside Piolo Pascual, who has called her a 'thinking actress'. In 2011, she played Sophia in the critically acclaimed 100 Days to Heaven. In 2012, Jodi became her special participation as Young Olivia La Peña in the daytime drama series Mundo Man ay Magunaw until she rose up when she top-billed Be Careful With My Heart as Maya dela Rosa along with Richard Yap who played her love interest Richard Lim. The show became a success worldwide, spawning albums, worldwide tours, and concerts.
