Nakama Yukie & Dan Rei to star in new winter drama.
The two amazing actresses Nakama Yukie (30) and Dan Rei (39) are going to work together for the first time for a new Fuji TV drama that is going to air in the upcoming winter season of 2011 that will start in January.
A title has yet to be announced for the drama, but it's supposed to be all about the complex and exciting world of women. A mysterious and wicked woman (Nakama) happens to encounter a normal housewife living a happy life (Dan). It's an encounter not without consequences as the housewife's ordinary and peaceful life slowly starts to crumble in front of her eyes. Jealousy, friendship and compassion are the 3 big themes for the suspense adult drama.
Filming already started not too long ago and the two actresses already hit it off with each other. Nakama talked a bit about her first impression of Dan. "After reading the script I wanted to meet up with Dan as soon as possible. She gives you such a kind and warm impression that it almost feels like being at home and she has no problems portraying that nice atmosphere of motherliness," she said. "I'm playing a suspicious woman with a lot of different faces. It's a role different to any other kind of role I've played in the past and I enjoy it a lot," she continued.
Dan was delighted to finally be able to work together with Nakama as well. "I never would have imagined to be able to work together with her someday. We are having a lot of conversations and it's just pure fun working for this drama. I'm enjoying work so much that I have to be careful not to suffer from a heatstroke," she said with a bitter smile. Temperatures are currently very high in Japan, so she definitely wasn't joking about the latter part.
Can there be any better way to start off a new year of dramas with two such big actresses starring together in one drama?
