Kento Hayashi and Nana Komatsu interview – Hosted by writer/announcer Satori Itou


Interview from Numero Tokyo published today

Kento Hayashi on his co-star: she is very friendly to everyone, and in a good sense she is a very ordinary woman. On the set, I was impressed by how she always seemed to be enjoying the moments with the staff. But when it came to acting, she was very serious and the atmosphere changed

Nana Komatsu on the ‘Lake’ scene: looking back on it now, I think the acting was raw. It’s something that can’t be done just by arrangements or rehearsals, and even the atmosphere changes by acting. Rather than just expressing myself, I was trying to keep up with the scene, and in the scenes where I had no choice but to do it, when Kento-san and I were in perfect sync, I felt like I was getting it. We spent some time working on the dialogue together and thinking about what we were going to do, but I also wanted to try out what we could create on the spot.

Nana Komatsu on ‘covid times’: it was also an opportunity for me to think about life again, as my time with my family is limited. It made me realize that the time we spend with our loved ones and the simple things we do are irreplaceable, and it gave me a gentle feeling.
