Ueno Juri to star in TBS Spring 2014 drama "Arisu no Toge"
Ueno has largely been known for her cheerful and bubbly roles in the past but this time, her character is so serious that there will be minimal scenes showing her smiling. The producer Takahashi Masanao said that Ueno was picked for the role to show the contrast between her image and the character and he feels quite excited to be able to see Ueno's cold expressions in the drama. Ueno also commented that she is thrilled to be able to try a new genre and promised to deliver her best.
Co-stars in this drama include Odagiri Jo, Kuriyama Chiaki and Nakamura Baijaku.
