After the movie “Revolver Lily,
Ghibomusu”, another physical action film!
In mid-October, a loud voice echoed down the main street near Gokokuji Temple (Bunkyo Ward) in Tokyo. At the center of the film crew was actress Haruka Ayase (38).
Dressed in a pitch-black kimono and holding a large bouquet of flowers, she was descending a pedestrian bridge with a dignified …… expression on her face, and the next moment, she dived into a cushion! After talking to a staff member on it, she climbed up onto the pedestrian bridge and dived again! After repeating the process several times, Ayase smiled as if she was satisfied.
After repeating the scene several times, Ayase smiled with satisfaction. It was a scene in which she falls from a pedestrian bridge, but Ayase did not use a stuntman in pursuit of realism and attempted all the takes herself.
The day was hot enough to record a summer day despite being in October, and Ayase, wearing a kimono, was drenched in sweat. However, during breaks, she was very considerate of the staff’s physical condition, and her attitude of not forgetting to take care of the scene was very impressive,” said a source from the production company.
Speaking of Ayase, she also took on the challenge of full-scale action in the movie “Revolver Lily,” in which she starred, which was released in August of this year. Columnist Takahiko Kageyama analyzes, “Action is becoming a new weapon.
Ayase’s charm is her innocent acting. However, now that she is in her late 30s, she is beginning to feel out of place with her age. That’s why she is working on an action that is almost the exact opposite of her image. If he refines his acting, he will become a bigger person.
Her insatiable appetite for acting is probably the secret to her continued success as a top actress.
