Kuwashima Umizora graces the cover of FRIDAY, on sale August 25th.

—First of all, thank you very much for your hard work on the day-long photo shoot!

I had a lot more physical activity than I expected, like playing in the ocean and swimming in the pool, so I thought, “I should have been more physically fit! I wish I had been more physically fit! I was actually taking naps secretly during breaks to regain my strength (laughs). But this time, I had a lot of favorite outfits, so I enjoyed the shoot to the very end! Especially the white bikini and the yellow floral bikini suited me well.

— “Kuwashima-san looks good in any color! I think the white bikini and the yellow floral print bikini especially suited me.

I am sure it was thanks to the stylist, not me! I always appreciate being able to try different outfits!”

—This is your first appearance in FRIDAY, and you will be on the cover right away.

I was surprised when I first heard about it. I’m very happy and I know it’s not for everyone. …… I have a pretty carefree personality, so when I saw a magazine with me on the cover at a convenience store, I thought, ‘Hey, that’s me! That’s me! I react in a carefree manner when I see myself on the cover of a magazine at a convenience store. I’m so self-paced that people around me are a little taken aback (laughs).

Laughs] — You also said between takes that you are “pretty laid-back.

I’ve always been an extremely free person, taking things at my own pace. But recently, I have been getting up early in the morning for gravure shoots, and I often feel anxious before I go to sleep at night, thinking, ‘I’m not going to make it in time for tomorrow’s meeting. I was surprised at how serious and anxious I was! I was surprised at myself.

She is attracting attention as a new heroine in the gravure world with a short cut that suits her perfectly.

—What are your goals for the future, and what would you like to do?

I would like to work hard not only in gravure but also in acting from now on! Recently, I have been taking acting lessons. I have been taking acting lessons recently. I practice acting in front of a director with a script that I interpret in my own way, and I also try my hand at etudes. Etudes are fun, but very difficult!

We improvise our roles, and the setting is limited to “two high school girls chatting in a café. We had to interpret the situation in our own way and act out the role on the spot. If you’re thinking, ‘What am I going to say next? If you are thinking, “What am I going to say next? What was the other person’s reaction just now? What was the other actor’s reaction just now?

—I’m in such a hurry…! You must be thinking about a lot of things at the same time!

That’s right! I use my head a lot. You need not only acting skills but also a quick mind. …… I want to not only build up my physical strength, but also power up my brain and run through the year of my nineteen years!”

The white bikini is her favorite outfit.
