The Early days

Actress, model and Chanel Ambassador Komatsu Nana is 24 today and she has achieved a lot whether it is in the world of cinema or in the world of fashion. She’s been in the entertainment industry for 12 years already. Maybe this is the right moment to go back to the times when it all began, long before she even considered being an actress.

Nana Komatsu was scouted in the Harajuku area in Tokyo when she was 12 years old and soon entered the 3B Junior pool of models and idols, which was then a division of Stardust Promotion, her current agency. Her first pics as a model were published by Nico-petit ニコプチ in 2008.

Those were the times when the young aspiring model and future actress was taking the train from her home in the Yamanashi Prefecture to Tokyo, in the company of her mother for the first contracts and subsequent trips. Pretty soon she travelled on her own as her parents wanted her to be independent.

In those days Nana Komatsu did not even think she would become an actress one day, she just wanted to continue as a model and considered becoming a hairstylist. Yet, she appeared in a short film or sort of called Shabondama in 2010 (Shabondama Short Film) and in a couple of music videos as well.

Many of the pics you will find below were once available from her old blog on Ameba, now they can be found in countless blogs, scattered all over the Internet (sources are mentioned, when available) : most of them are small, low res pics.
