First off I would like to pray for the victims of the Sendai Tsunami that has devastated the Japanese people and left a telling reminder of how life can never be taken for granted. Hence, I feel wholly blessed to be alive and have the golden opportunity to write about my greatest passion, global actresses whom i admire so. Therefore this tribute today goes out to rising starlet KYOKO OKAZAKI, her family who are safe back home in Japan and all Japanese citizens who are deeply affected by the sudden tragedy. As you know I’m all about optimism and just like me KYOKO is full of positivity. Born and raised in Okayama, she uprooted to the US and became noted for playing a tomboy who dresses in male clothing to avoid detection from the Yakuza in the Los Angeles play Utsutsu. Found out that ‘Utsutsu’ means reality and thus we can’t change who we are, as I think is being implied by the theatrical production. After being praised for her acting on stage, KYOKO has segued excellently into the independent scene with roles in a number of films.
With her splendidly infectious smile, KYOKO’s natural poise is pronouncedly easy to adore. Be sure to check her out in the upbeat dramedy “Mouse Ward” as well as the upcoming short “The Curse Of The Apple” as its leading lady. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw her on the cast list for serial killer thriller “Luster” and I’m crossing my fingers she survives till the end of the movie! I’m very fond of bubbly young actresses and there’s plenty of cheer in the corner of Miss KYOKO OKAZAKI. She’s so affable as I’ve found out chatting with her on FACEBOOK; Her likability certainly puts her in good stead to be a breakout star…Start Watching Her!
