A Japanese actress with talent and looks. Wonderful!

5 ( +6 / -1 )

One of Japan's greatest actresses, unappreciated in her homeland but she is having the last laugh.

Memo to Rinko: When you pose for a photo, please don't cross your legs like that.

A truly talented actress. I don't find her particularly attractive, but I find her characters very well done.

She played a role in NHK's morning drama series in 2001 (Chura- san Okinawa location) . Back then she was known as Murayama Maiko.

Talented? YES! she is when she's on her Japanese language dramas and films. But she is BORING when she's using english. Pacific Rim and 47 Ronin was the evidence . I hope she fixes her english or just do japanese. BTW gotta love her role on the drama "LIAR GAME".

She looks like Seiko Matsuda in 47 ronin, am I right?

Rinko has made the transition into the international scene, and is stylish, capable and competent. She is a great role model for Japanese women.

@Titanium I agree, I liked her in Liar Game as well. Great actress and under-appreciated in Japan, indeed. Between her and Shibasaki Kou, I don't think there are many J-actresses as known internationally as they are.
