Dazzling presence on the set of “Trillion Game,” the latest drama starring Ren Meguro.
In mid-July, actress Mio Imada (26) was filming her latest drama “Trillion Game” (TBS) at a building in Omotesando. When she came out of the event space where the filming took place around 3:00 p.m., Imada smiled at the staff around her.
Imada has read the original story of this drama herself and loves it. She gets to wear different gorgeous outfits for each shoot, and she looks forward to that as well.
Imada debuted as “the most beautiful girl in Fukuoka” and has a strong presence in this drama. Although her glamorous looks may attract attention, she is already highly regarded in the industry as a talented actress.
She made her big break at the age of 21 in the drama “Hana-no-chi-Hare” (TBS) and has steadily worked her way up the ranks, but to tell the truth, she has only played the lead role in one film so far. She has gained experience in a wide range of supporting roles, appearing in Sunday dramas such as “Last Man” (TBS) and the morning drama “Okaeri Monet” (NHK).
Imada’s charm lies in the rich expression of emotion that she brings to life with her large eyes. She is now looking ahead to the next stage of her career.
She says, “The latter half of one’s twenties is the period that will determine the future of an actress. Having played supporting roles in hit movies, it is only a matter of time before she is chosen for a leading role in a major drama. She is the leading actress of the next generation of leading roles.
The day when Imada’s masterpiece is born is near.
