Filming wraps up for NHK morning drama "Toto Nee-chan"
The filming for NHK morning drama "Toto Nee-chan" was concluded on 25 August where cast members Takahata Mitsuki, Nishijima Hidetoshi, Kimura Tae, Sagara Itsuki and Sugisaki Hana attended the press conference. Since the filming began on 9 November, the cast had spent the last 10 months together working on this drama. When presented with a bouquet of flowers by her co-stars during the press conference, Takahata commented in tears that she felt that the filming would never come to an end and there were many challenges during this period but she was helped by her co-stars and crew. She also expressed her gratitude to be able to act in this drama. When asked about the toughest thing she experienced during the filming, she said that the number of lines was so many that she felt that her brain was about to burst. On the last day of the filming, Takahata had to film a scene where she met her late father (Nishijima) in her dream. As it has been some time since they met, Takahata said that she was nervous about their meeting. As for Nishijima, he said that he felt the same too and had skipped his lines during the filming.
