One evening in late September. One evening in late September, on the deck in front of Ueno Station (Taito Ward), a group of office workers who had finished their work and were hurrying home stopped to stare at a point in surprise. They were looking at a woman with a short cut. It was the actress Haru (30).
It must have been a photo shoot of some kind. She did not sit on the prepared chair or chat with the staff, but quietly waited for the shooting to start. She was waiting quietly for the filming to start, perhaps to unify her mind before it started. Some of them put their hands on their chests and looked up at the sky.
The shooting finally started after 6:00 p.m. when the area was starting to get dark. Haru, along with three women and a man, stood in front of the camera to shoot a scene where they were discussing something in a circle.
“Haru is a solitary person, and she doesn’t hang out with her co-stars on set. That’s why people tend to think she has a tough personality, but in reality she’s just shy.” (Entertainment industry insider)
Her dignified appearance is not only in front of the camera.
