Actress Maki Horikita, 22, will play a villain for the first time in her upcoming movie, an adaptation of Keigo Higashino's popular novel "Byakuyako" (Into the White Night), which will co-star Kengo Kora, 23. "This year I'd like to try lots of new things," Horikita said.
One such new challenge, she said, is playing a villain for the first time in her career. "The idea that people are going to watch it and think, 'This girl's really scary' is a little unsettling," she said. " However, I hope as many people as possible will see the movie."
"Into the White Night," directed by Yoshihiro Fukagawa, will be released on Jan 29.© Japan Today
