TV Japan has just published an interview of actress Komatsu Nana, they asked her about her role and the filming of Ito, the forthcoming movie from director Takahisa Zeze (nationwide preview on August 13 and theatrical release on August 21)
Below is a summary in English of selected highlights (original article and interview in Japanese: The tv.jp)
She says she has a connection with nearly all the actors/actresses in the movie, especially with Mizuki Yamamoto whom she worked with in Close Range Love but also with Masaki Suda as they’ve been working together in three movies.
Filming in Singapore was a lot of fun and together with Mizuki Yamamoto and Mahiro Takasugi they went to a lot of food stalls. 🙂
She has good memories of Okinawa too where she was with Takumi Saito whom she describes as a nice and calm person.
Crying over her plate of food was quite a scene and Miyuki Nakajima‘s song in the background helped her out.
She remembers her debut in The World of Kanako and how Director Nakashima -whom she saw then as a scary person- helped her out when she didn’t know what to do. She found fun in acting, adding that life is all about turning points.
