And another Monday has come around again, so, here it is, our Girl of the Week for yet another week of the year. We really are beginning to run out of weeks in 2013. As with a few of our Girl of the Week ladies in the ast, we have chosen a foreign star who is well known nationally but not on a global scale.
Keiko Kitagawa is a Japanese actress, who has also done some modelling earlier in her career. Keiko initially wanted to become a Doctor but, upon realising that this was never going to happen, she decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
At the age of 17, Keiko Kitagawa became a model for the Japanese Seventeen magazine and continued to work for them from 2003 until 2006. Her modelling work led her to the path of acting and Keiko Kitagawa got her first acting job in the show Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, which she starred in from 2003-2004.
While Keiko Kitagawa is a well known face and name in Japan, due to her work as a model, as well as her television work and movies, some of you might recognise Keiko from the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. She is clearly a talented actress and we hope to see Keiko Kitagawa in more Hollywood projects in the future.
