Kimura Fumino to take on the leading role in TBS Spring 2015 drama "Mother Game ~ Kanojotachi no Kaikyu ~"

Kimura Fumino will be taking on her first leading role in a drama series when she appears in the upcoming TBS Spring 2015 drama "Mother Game ~ Kanojotachi no Kaikyu ~" (Mother Game ~ Their ranking~) which will begin its run from 14 April in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. She will play the role of Kanbara Kiko, a divorced single mother who has an annual salary of JPY 2.5m only but ends up sending her son to a high-class kindergarten where most if not all the kids there have rich parents. Kiko feels as if she's the odd one out but unwittingly helps some of the "rich" mothers there solve their unspeakable problems. Co-stars include Hasegawa Kyoko, Kanjiya Shihori, Adachi Yumi and Dan Rei.

This is Kimura's first leading role in a drama since she made her debut 10 years ago. She revealed that the early years of her career was tough as she was not making much progress and had to take on part-time jobs in order to make ends meet. It was only until she was scouted by her current agency in 2010 that her career began to pick up in the following year so she is very happy about this opportunity given to her.

Filming will begin on 15 March.
