Ko Shibasaki is considered one of the most beautiful and talented actress/singers in Japan. She is known throughout Japan and East Asia for her outstanding acting performances, none more memorable than that of her role in Battle Royale. However, she recently appeared in the big budget box office film "47 Ronin" and while it did not fare well at the box office she has received praise for her leading lady performance as Mika alongside leading man Keanu Reaves.
The movie which took place during feudal Japan, revolves around a group of samurai warriors who seek revenge on the man who caused the death of her father with the assistance of a witch. Her father raised Kai a japanese and english boy, played by Keanu Reaves and she eventually entered into a culturally forbidden relationship with him because he could never become an actual samurai.
The movie has now been released on DVD and entertainment insiders are predicting that when audiences in the United States get the opportunity to see this movie from the comfort of their homes they will become fascinated with the beautiful and talented Ko Shibasaki. She is an actress who possesses intriguing acting talent as she is a combination of beauty and impressive emotional range and strength. Her performance leaves a positive impression on all those who watch her and producers and directors in North America envision her being involved in other movies in the future.
Entertainment insiders have been hearing rumours that she might be a possibility for a femme fatale or 'bad girl' role. With her acting talent and stunning beauty these roles are tailor made for Ko Shibasaki and thus a legitimate possibility in the near future.
