Georgia CM and Oricon News

Brand new CM released on March 23 for Georgia Latte Nista, on sale from March 30 onwards. The clip will be broadcast nationwide the following day. Georgia is a branch of Coca Cola Japan.

Oricon interview: Oricon news seized the opportunity for a brief interview with the actress. Asked if she enjoyed the shooting, Nana Komatsu says she liked it very much (being with people in an office, wearing a western suit, the atmosphere of cooperation..) but then the interviewer shifts to past vs present questions, quite a relevant move as the young star has been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, half her life.

She recalls when she was scouted while shopping with her mum in Harajuku, Tokyo.

In the years that followed, she continued to attend school because she basically wanted to lead a normal life, enjoy simple things and socialize with her hometown friends whom she’s still in touch with.

When she started her acting career while still in high school she was worried because she felt she knew nothing about acting.

She says she still feels the pressure today with new roles and new challenges but finds fun in that and a sense of fulfilment as she is given the opportunities to develop her potential.

Not without humor, the young actress says that when she thinks it’s difficult, it gets even more difficult every year and then feels positive (‘that’s a plus’) as she overcomes obstacles.
