Her attitude change influenced the jobs that were offered.
"Evaluations toward my job have changed!"
Director Yoshiyuki Kishi, of the drama "When I was a Child", broadcast on October 17th on NHK BS hi-vision, watched Kaori's acting in shows such as "Linda, Linda, Linda" (Director Atsuhiro Yamashita, 2005). He offered her a role in his drama, playing a mother who was strong, yet showing love.
Also, she performed at a theater play "Sad Hunch" in 2007 (author – Banana Yoshimoto, director – Shinya Tsukamoto). Her long time friend who often isn't pleased with her work gave her praise, "Your acting has a ‘healing' influence." That was a big surprise to her.
Kaori says that she can believe that she has great potential for a bright future, even though it may not appear so right now. "I feel like my life has changed 180 degrees."
We are very happy to hear that!
KBC is a big part of my life and the place where I can see the style that I'm aiming for as a performer.
The life of an actress is harder than most people imagine. When the shooting lasts long hours, her lifestyle becomes irregular and her eating habits get disrupted due to constantly eating deep fried lunches. It's hard for her to cook by herself with the limited time she has.
"However, I know that if I go to KBC I can eat vegan meals which are good for my body. I don't have to cook, either." She often stops by at KBC late after her work. KBC is part of her life.
"Marre does seminars such as ‘Psychology Seminar for Men and Women' and ‘Japanese Roots Seminar'. KBC is the place that offers valuable information that I really want. It's wonderful that a place like this is close to where I live."
This is what she says about KBC's healthy menus that come out constantly.
"There are shops offering merely "healthy" menus, but the way of making menus like KBC, being concerned about things like PMS for women, can't be done if the management is not truly concerned about people.
She says, "Most of all, KBC's interest is people's needs. That's why they pay attention to you and smile …now I can tell that KBC influences me a lot for the style I'm aiming for as an actress."
When she can't visit KBC for a while, she feels her heart becomes sad. When she comes to KBC after a long absence due to shooting, it surely seems that she is very delighted.
We look forward to her successful acting to continue!
