Ever met a Japanese actor/actress?

Post by Sayumi » Aug 11th, '07, 17:24

since I'm totally into jdrama, since last year, I started to recognize many Japanese actors and actresses and I'm even able to remember their names :-) not that much of a big deal, but my parents do frown a bit when they hear me saying such a name

anyways, I started to like certain actors and actresses, and if there's a drama they're starring, I make sure to watch it, bcz I know on beforehand it might be worth the while
however though, I just like them bcz of the roles they play... I'm not really a know-all in acting skills, so I won't be able to say if they're pro-actors or not, but I like the characters they put forth, the kind of persons they play in all the dramas/movies

so I wanted to know if anyone ever met a Japanese actor or actress already, in real life, and what they were like :-) I don't really watch those drama 'specials' as in a backstage report of the drama, bcz first of all it's hard to find them (not that I really search for them though :P) and secondly bcz I don't understand enough japanese to understand what they're talking about. I know from those 'specials' you can get an idea of what they're like, but still... I guess it would be nice if you could meet an actor or actress you know and like, and be able to say 'hey! you did very well in ...' I dunno :) it just seems cool
since I live in Belgium there's NEVER gonna be a way I would ever meet them here, and the same counts if I go on a holiday to some other country. Or it would be an Asian country (preferably Japan), and they I míght have the chance to catch a glimpse. But gosh that would be awesome ^-^ I would so look forward to it

and no, I'm not a crazy fangirl, I'm just curious about how some actors and actresses are in real life, and just be able to say 'hey, I watched..., you were great!' that would be soo exciting, and that's about it :)

so, anyone got any experience with this already? :P

you guys are total NewS-fans :P nothing bad about it :) I wonder if they actually knów that there are sooo many fans in other (non-asian) countries, won't they ever debute(is that how you say it?) in america or so, or europe? but I guess they see johnny's entertainment still too much as a japanese production meant to only entertain japanese people (and some other asian countries). Utadu Hikaru already released her cds in America, right? And I heard from a friend that little jrock-bands already came to perform in europe :)

Well, I've met Tegoshi & Massu from News. They're actors too so I guess it counts? xD
I met them on the fanevent when they were in Sweden as Tegomass :wub:
Or I didn't really meet them and talked to them, just shook their hands and watched them performing xD
Some people talked to them, and I could've said anything if I wanted, but I was too shy and shocked I guess. :wub:

I am also from Europe and i don't even DARE to dream of meeting japanese actors and/or actress *sniff sniff*

Tegoshi and Massu in Sweden? :w00t: *faints* I know that Shun Oguri was in London one or 2 years ago, can't remember exactly. He actually played in an act of Shakespeare. Too bad i started watching doramas late in 2006 :cry:

And how lucky can one be to see Kamenashi Kazuya from the train?! I wish i could see him in person :w00t:

Do you think that the Johnny Boys will still be on stage in 2013? At the age of 25 i plan on going to Japan so that'd be in 2013 :lol

Hmm... I've worked personally with a musician/actor who's name rhymes with アクト.

Pretty down to earth guy... he really liked to crack dirty jokes and enjoys his Gundam; very friendly.

I've met Ryu from Korea, as well... he was very friendly and extremely humble. He' just well known in Japan for FuyuSona. Of couse, I'm not sure if he acts, though.

I've met quite a few more musicians, but I guess they're kind of irrelevant.

hey, cool, another one from belgium :) I thought I was the only one :P

I'm planning to go to japan next year. Actually I was planning to go a few years ago, but the people I was going with cancelled. So now I decided to go next year. Perhaps I'll meet some japanese actor then :) I'd want to meet siam shade (the band) as in going to a concert, but since they split I guess that's a bit impossible :(

Yes, I met Mizuki Arisa...in my dream. She kept running into a wall, and everytime she hit she fell down, got back up and ran right back into it. When she noticed I was watching she turned to me and starting speaking flent English. It was weird.
But really, I've met Ichikawa Yui once in New York and three times in Japan. =D
She's sweet but doesn't speak at all! I wonder if it's her agency that does that to her?
Though this is the Japan forum, I've met and chatted up with Kim Jung Hoon (he debuted in Japan so I guess this counts) thanks to my sister. :wub:

In tokyo i saw 2 famous celebrities. I don't know their names though, i saw them filming in Asakusa, my japanese friend told me the guy who was big and had short dyned brown hair was a famous dancer and appears in tv shows all the time in Japan. The other guy i saw filming along with him was also a big guy.
Then they started walking down the street and a young lady appeared walking with them, i don't know who she was tho.
