Japan Model Anne in series Name wo Nakushita Onnatachi
Model and actress Anne (24) has landed her first starring role in a television series, leading the cast of Fuji TV’s “Namae wo Nakushita Onnatachi” (tentative title). The show will also be the first time that Anne plays a mother.
The story focuses on a group of mothers who all have children around the same age. These women form a bond through sharing their anxieties about raising their children, each coming from a different background. However, the friendship between the five women also turns to jealousy and betrayal, due to the fact that their children are all taking similar entrance exams for elementary school.
Anne plays the protagonist Yuko, whose set of values as a woman, wife, and mother have been overturned, and she struggles to climb back from her fallen state.
Meanwhile, her four fellow mothers are hiding serious problems at home, despite their appearances. Ono Machiko (29) plays a woman receiving verbal abuse from her husband on a daily basis, Kurashina Kana (23) plays a “yankee mama” who got pregnant as a teenager by a truck driver, Ryo (33) plays a capable woman running her own online shop, and Kimura Yoshino (34) plays a popular reader model for a women’s magazine.
Fuji TV will broadcast the show on Tuesdays at 9:00pm, starting in April.
