Actress Ayame Goriki hopes that her role in the Japanese voice cast for the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” film will be the first step toward a Hollywood career.
The 21-year-old actress visited Zojoji Temple in Tokyo on Thursday week to offer a prayer that her wish might come true.
In the upcoming film, directed by Bryan Singer and starring Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, the X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.
Goriki will supply the voice for the character of Raven/Mystique, played by Academy Award winner Lawrence. The film opens in Japan on May 30.
Goriki is currently one of Japan's most visible faces, making frequent appearances at various events. She currently appears in ad campaigns for 12 different companies.© Japan Today
