Nao in a “vivid dress” shown on the set of a photo shoot
Autumn Entertainment Wide Feature "Each Crossroads"
At 6:30 in the early morning of October, actress Nao (27) was seen in front of Tokyo Station for the filming of her drama “First Penguin! (Nippon Television Network Corporation) in front of Tokyo Station. (NTV). On that day, she was filming a scene in which she holds hands with her son, Rikuto Ishizuka (7), and takes an incoming phone call.
While waiting for the scene to start, she patted Rikusho on the head while he was standing beside her, treating him as if he were her own son.
She was active in her hometown of Fukuoka until the age of 20. She had worked as a reporter at a local station, and her spirit of taking on various challenges is still alive and well. She is not afraid of any scene and is easy to get along with when she appears on variety shows.
Although her role as a stalker in the drama “It’s Your Turn” (NTV) left a strong impression, her friendly personality is what makes her so appealing. This “ability to be loved” is said to be a characteristic of actresses who break out in recent years.
Her dedication makes even those who don’t know her want to root for her. Like Sairi Ito (28), the public is sympathetic to actresses who break out in supporting roles, and if they are well received on set, they are more likely to get new work.
This is Nao’s first drama starring in a prime-time commercial TV slot. The actress always had a smile on her face, which gave her the air of a talented actress.
