It was early July, just as the summer season was about to begin. There was a woman walking around, radiating her sex appeal, not letting the heat get the better of her. After the one-hour event, she left the venue under the protection of a parasol.
Yoshioka made her breakthrough in 2005 when she appeared in the drama “Quartet” (TBS) and played a strong bad girl. Since then, she has increased her presence as an actress in many famous works.
In addition to acting, she is also very active in TV commercials. In the first half of 2011, she was featured in commercials for a total of seven companies, including “Ayataka” (Coca-Cola Japan) and “Lenore” (P&G), in addition to Jumbo Lottery tickets. When the popular commercial “Dongitsune” for “Nissin’s Donbei” in which he used to appear with Minamoto Hoshino (42) ended, social networking sites were flooded with “Dongitsune loss” voices. Yoshioka has been overwhelmingly well received by the production team.
Yoshioka’s acting ability to play a variety of roles, from comical to serious, is of course a given, but her strength lies in her friendliness and conversational skills. In meetings, she quickly understands the purpose of the work, chews it over, and responds in her own words.
I am constantly amazed at how fast her mind works and how many drawers she has. She has been a radio personality for more than seven years, and in each program she successfully draws out episodes with her natural delivery to a wide variety of guests. Her conversational skills have attracted a lot of attention in the industry,” said a person involved in program production.
She is a hard worker who worked four part-time jobs in her early years. It seems unlikely that she will give up her position as CM queen.
