‘Galbo, a certain monster’ (ガルボ あるあるモンスター) is the name of the new CM for Galbo Chocolate (Meiji). Featuring actress and model Komatsu Nana, a 15s and a 30s versions will be broadcast all over Japan from April 2 onwards.
In the short Q&A session which follows the ‘making of’ footage, the young actress told the interviewer the shooting was a lot of fun as she had to wear many different suits and dresses. Part of her routines when filming includes eating something sweet while having a coffee break, therefore she was glad she could help herself with chocolate while performing for the CM.
Viewers also get to know she likes listening to music while on the set and whenever it’s possible she takes brief naps to feel refreshed and be ready for the next shooting sequence. When she is not busy acting or modeling, her focus is food more often than not. She is always looking forward to eating nice food as it makes her happy.
Not this time ! A recipient of an Excellence Prize for her role as Sonoda Aoi in Ito, actress Komatsu Nana did not get the supreme award in the Best Actress category. Experienced actress Nagasawa Masami was voted Best Actress by the Academy for her remarkable and powerful performance in Mother.
Nana Komatsu looked radiant and beautiful in a Chanel dress from the Haute Couture Fall 2019-2020 Collection, with a new haircut and wearing earrings at the top of her ears. Funnily, there was some interaction and questions from the MCs about her costar Masaki Suda (also a nominee as Best Actor) regarding the filming of Ito and their previous collaborations, much to the delight of fans who like to pair them more often than not.
Though she wasn’t awarded the Best Prize, it seems obvious that Komatsu Nana is no longer perceived as a newcomer, she grabbed several noms and awards during the last two years and it was the second year in a row the Academy gave her a nod. In years to come, there will be plenty of opportunities to rejoice and celebrate, she will sure get the leading parts in strong films that will propel her into a new and even greater dimension.
Four years before actress and model Komatsu Nana became a co-ambassador of Niko and with actor and singer Suda Masaki -a three-year contract from February 2018 to February 2021 which led to the release of many quality commercials, most of them short films- she was part of a campaign to promote clothes for the Japanese brand. It was called ‘30 Day Coordinate‘ and pics popped out on the web from September 2014 until February 2015.
