There are a lot of actresses in Japan right now, who are huge stars in their native country, yet are not too well-known on an international scale. Some of these Japanese girls are now trying to make a name for themselves in Hollywood and, here we take a look at some of them.
The Japanese actress who is making the biggest amount of noise in Hollywood right now, would have to be Rinko Kikuchi, who is having a great year. Rinko has been in the acting game for many years but, earlier this year she appeared in Pacific Rim and she will star with Keanu Reeves in the upcoming movie 47 Ronin.
Another actress who has been making big waves in Hollywood, is the beautiful Tao Okamoto, who many of you will recognise as the leading lady in the movie The Wolverine, starring with Hugh Jackman. Tao Okamoto has what it takes to go on and appear in many more movies to come.
Another Japanese actress who appeared in The Wolverine, was Rila Fukushima, who played the role of Yukio in the film. While her role was not quite as big as Tao Okamoto, she still managed to hold her own and prove that she belongs in a Hollywood blockbuster.
There are many more talented Japanese actresses and, if these three women manage to make it big, we could well see plenty more heading to Hollywood in the future.
