Actress Meisa Kuroki, 24, will play a thief in TBS' new TV series "Take Five: Can We Steal Love?" (starts Friday April 19 from 10 p.m.). It will mark Kuroki's comeback as an actress after she took a year off to have a baby girl last year with husband Jin Akanishi.
"Take Five: Can We Steal Love?" stars Toshiaki Karasawa and Yasuko Matsuyuki. It tells the story of five thieves whose mission is to steal money from other criminals.
The allure of Kuroki has not faded away even after she became a mom. Dressed in tight leather pants, she plays the role of American returnee thief. "To be honest, I think this costume is too visible for a thief to wear but I hope to create an 'edgy Americanized' character," she said in comments to the media.
Kuroki is also appearing on TV in another role -- in the NHK "Taiga" drama "Yaeno Sakura."© Japan Today
