Cast announcement press conference of NHK morning drama "Asa ga kita"

The cast announcement press conference of NHK morning drama "Asa ga kita" was held in Osaka on 23 April which was attended by the lead Haru and her co-stars Miyazaki Aoi, Tamaki Hiroshi, Emoto Tasuku, Kondo Masaomi, Fubuki Jun, Nono Sumika, Tatsumi Takuro, Manda Hisako, Hayashi Yoichi, Miyake Hiroki and Yamauchi Takaya. The drama which will begin its run from 28 September, features Miyazaki as the heroine's elder sister while Tamaki will play Haru's husband and Fubuki Jun will play her mother-in-law.

Miyazaki who has experience playing a NHK morning drama heroine (2006's Junjo Kirari), was asked about what advice she had for Haru. As the filming period will last for 9 months from mid May in the Kansai region, Miyazaki said that it is best to eat well so as to have enough energy. However, when asked how to cope with homesickness since the cast have to be away from Tokyo for a long time, Miyazaki said that when she was doing "Junjo Kirari", the filming was primarily in Tokyo so she could go home every day thus she didn't have a solution for the problem.

Thanks for this! I'm generally not into asadoras, but I guess I'll have to make an exception this time for Tamaki! Haven't see Haru act before, but she seems to look older than her 23 years... Miyazaki sitting next to her looks much younger.
