Ayano Go will be starring in the new NTV Spring 2017 drama "Frankenstein no Koi" (Frankenstein's Love) which will begin its run from April in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot. The drama which is based on an original script by Oomori Sumio, features Ayano as a monster created by the famous Dr. Frankenstein 100 years ago who has an appearance similar to human beings, eternal life and a gentle heart. He falls in love with a young woman Tsugaru-san but things between them are fraught with difficulties as he has an unspeakable secret as he cannot be touched by human beings. Much as he desires to come into contact with human beings, he is scared of being hurt. Although he wants to love, he is scared of being disliked.
This drama will be his first leading role in a NTV drama and it will also be his first time playing a monster. As there will be scenes where the monster has to transform itself, Ayano will have to put on special makeup which he hopes that the viewers will be able to accept. As for playing a monster in this love story, he doesn't feel strange about it but did express surprise when he first read the script. Even though he will be a monster, he won't be a frightening one but instead will be an adorable one who will meet, know and interact with human beings.
