My favourite actress of the moment is Juri Ueno, well known for her portrayal of Nodame in Nodame Cantabile. I guess I like the stage character so much because she’s quirky, and I suppose in many ways we share that resemblance of secret sudden obsessions and sudden serious philosophies. Oh and that she plays Ravel so marvellously!
She looks so elegant in white. And she is just a year older than me now at 24! What a thought.
But here’s a little clip on the ‘Fart Exercise’ song, written by the real life Nodame which the show is based on. She is absolutely the cutest!
