Kawaei Rina’s first stage play “AZUMI” exceeds expectations

16 Sep

Kawaei Rina who graduated from AKB48 last month has formally started her actress activities. Her first job is stage play “AZUMI” which started it’s run on 11th September. It is said that reporters who watched the show were amazed by Kawaei’s acting.

“AZUMI” has been adapted on the silver screen and stage, starring Ueto Aya and Kuroki Meisa previously. The casting of famous actresses has always become a topic of discussion but with casting of AKB48’s Kawaei this time, attention is on how well she can do.

“The atmosphere on the first day was cold.Reporters were heard wondering how far Kawaei can go and what will happen to her after the stage play ends.However, once it ended, many were expressing their shock at how well it went. Actually, Kawaei’s killing scenes involved 350 people(comparable to Kuroki Meisa’s version) and it was already very hard. She still managed to remember her lines in such circumstances so it didn’t feel awkward.” – Sports reporter. The director Okamura Shunichi also praised Kawaei.

Flowers from various companies also arrived to express their support.

“Of course, there were flowers from AKB48 members, TBS (cos she acted in Gomen ne,Seishun), DENTSU(casting and entertainment company). Kawei’s agency Avex Vanguard also sent flowers in the name of CEO Max Matsuura.” -Same sports reporter.

Kawaei commented in a interview later “I was taught various things related to killing scenes, so i’d like to take on roles like that in future.”

    ……….omg what timing of that pic
    I’m glad she’s getting some positive press. I remember comments on GirlsChannel actually liking her in Gomen ne and I was shocked they actually said positive stuffs about AKB lol With her image, she might gets typecast in dramas tho so she’ll have to work harder to get past that
