If I’m truly honest, I don’t know if I actually have a favourite actress or actor. I mean, there are actors that I enjoy watching, but I don’t actively seek out their work just because they’re in it. If the story sounds good and they happen to be in it, then I’m fine.
What’s even worse is that I don’t really remember the names of actors. So, say I’m watching something and I see someone that I recognize I’ll say to myself, “Oh it’s…it’s….that person from that drama. What was it called again?” Then I’d look up the drama I’m watching, find their name and then find the drama I’ve seen them in.
For that reason, I think this is actually going to be a hard one, because even though I’m still going to be picking people for this question, I wouldn’t say I’m a die hard fan of theirs or that they’re my absolute favourite. I simply enjoy what I’ve seen from them and leave it at that.
Favourite Actress: Nakama Yukie
I went with Nakama Yukie simply due to the range of characters I’ve seen her play and how much I loved her as Saki. She played this character named Saki in Saki and Utsukushii Rinjin and boy was she good in it. Even though she isn’t actively killing people with knives and whatnot, she’s still terrifying. With her sweet smile hiding her devious plans made me really like Nakama Yukie. She really did a phenomenal job with this role.
Favourite Actor: Yamada Takayuki
This was a bit easier, because I do like Yamada Takayuki. Everything that I’ve seen him in has been a hit for me. Whether he’s in a super serious role, like in M.W., or in a fun one, like Arakawa Under The Bridge, he just shines with whatever he’s given.
