Anne Watanabe to star in NHK's new morning drama


Anne Watanabe, 26, has been selected as the main character in NHK's new morning TV drama series, "Gochisosan," which will air from next fall.

The story depicts the life of a gourmet who marries into a family in Osaka and how she lives through the turbulent Taisho and Showa eras.

The script is written by Yoshiko Morishita who has written many popular TV dramas such as TBS's "JIN."

"I am very honored to be given this role," said Watanabe, whose father is accliamed actor Ken Watanabe. "It will be a long shoot, but together, with the great crew and my fellow cast members, I will be able to get through it."

@jojo - Yes, of course this is news. I appreciate JT giving us news from all sections of life - politics, economics, crime, sports, and entertainment too.

I am not interested in all of it, mind you, and what I have no interest in, I don't read. I do not assume that because I don't care about something, it's worthless. That would be condescending.
