I've been feeling excited ever since the production of the movie was officially announced. Everybody tells me that I'm perfect for the role of Fukube. It makes me wonder what they really mean (laughs)... I've worked with the director many times before and one of the things I always enjoy is how he adds interesting things for the actors to do and say before a take. He does the same in this movie, but he doesn't do it with me. I don't get to add anything! It's a bit of a disappointment for me (laughs).
