In the early afternoon of December, a beautiful woman with a divine aura came trotting to a fountain in a park in Hibiya. It was Keiko Kitagawa (36).
She was shooting a scene for “The School of Themis – Legal Youth White Paper” (Fuji Television Network), a Monday 9 drama series that will start in January next year. The heroine, played by Kitagawa, is a judge and a new teacher sent to a law school. Kitagawa has appeared in several Fuji TV dramas, but this is actually her first time starring in a Geki 9 drama.
Kitagawa sat on the edge of the fountain, chewing on a tonkatsu bento, munching, gulping water, and puffing and exhaling in a series of comical expressions.
Kitagawa, who also plays the role of Oichi no Okata in next year’s NHK historical drama “Dousuru Ieyasu,” is the mother of a 2-year-old daughter and is busy with work and childcare.
She is a mother of a two-year-old daughter and is busy with work and childcare. “As she gets older, including marriage and childbirth, she is becoming more and more attractive as an actress. She seems to be doing a good job of housework and child rearing, and it is because she has such a common sense that her acting has a realistic feel to it.
She played the role of a mother of four in the movie “From Rageri with Love,” and I think she will play more mothers in the future, but I think she is capable of playing attractive women even as she gets older, like Keiko Matsuzaka” (columnist Tamami Hiyama).
In this film, Kitagawa is said to eat heartily in many scenes. We can’t wait to see how she eats.
