For todays Girl of the Day, we are going back to giving you a woman who has worked away but is not exactly a global superstar. In the past few days, we brought you some more well-known stars but today, unless you are into your Japanese music, you probably will not know who she is.
Todays Girl of the Day is Rie Kitahara, who is a Japanese singer, as well as doing some acting work during her career. Rie is only 22 years old but she has been on the Japanese music scene for the past five years, singing as one of the members of the Japanese Idol group AKB48.
While she has released a lot of music in the past few years, she has also spread her wings and gone further afield, by getting involved in acting. Rie lent her voice to a character in the anime series Gakkō no Kowai Uwasa: Shin Hanako-san ga Kita!!, while she also appeared in the Japanese horror movie Joker Game, which opened late last year.
Among her other acting credits include the movie Grafreeter Toki, as well as the TV series Kazoku Game. With a wide range of talents, we expect Rie Kitahara to be around for many years to come and we look forward to seeing what she offers us next.
