Actress Honami Suzuki, 43, who dropped out of show business in 1999, will be returning in next year's NHK Taiga historical drama "Gō: Hime-tachi no Sengoku" (Ladies of the Sengoku period).
Suzuki, who will play the mother of Go (Juri Ueno), the younger sister of Nobunaga Oda, said, "I am very nervous as it has been 11 years since my last film, 'Ichigen-san.'"
However, Suzuki said that because she is actually the mother of three daughters (who are 11, 9 and 7), she thought the role of Go was right for her. She added that sorting our her feelings and the timing of the invitation from NHK “perfectly fit together like magic.”
In 1998, Honami married Takaaki Ishibashi, 48, of the comedy duo TUNNELS. After giving birth to her first daughter in 1999, she focused on being a housewife.
The roles of Yodo and Hatsu will be played by Rie Miyazawa, 37, and Asami Mizukawa, 26.© Japan Today
