I really wanted to convey the pain of the broken finger scene, so I worked very hard. I think I screamed the loudest in my life. I don’t usually scream so much, so I just had to make the most of it.
In a calm tone of voice, he recalls the shocking scene he took on. Actress Hikari Kabashima responded to the interview in between the filming of “Nare no Kare no Bokura,” a drama currently being broadcast in TV Tokyo and elsewhere. The film depicts an incident of confinement that caused “13 deaths” of former classmates who gathered for a class reunion. Kabashima plays Aya Osanai, an ″imadoki girl″ who is the opposite of herself.
Hikari Kabashima says, “At first, I wondered how I should play the role. For example, Koyamauchi, who is easily influenced by his surroundings, is told by Mikio (the main suspect in the case) that he is an “empty person” and that he has “no opinion of his own. But I didn’t know what it meant to have no opinion of my own. So I tried not to think about anything when I was on set. Of course, I had the script in mind. But in order to make it look like Koyamauchi, I try not to remember who was killed or who died. By making it so that only one of them doesn’t know anything, I hope I can bring out her personality.
The drama has many scenes that make you want to cover your eyes, such as the dismembered bodies tumbling out of a classroom locker and the depiction of the students being burned to death in a shower of concentrated sulfuric acid. ……
The work itself is quite high on my list of favorites (laughs). The stimulating aspects are one thing, but above all, I find it very interesting to see how the true nature of human nature and the depths of human nature are revealed in extreme situations. I think this is a drama with surprising twists and turns waiting for you, so I hope you will watch it to the end.
