Completion screening event of WOWOW's first period drama "Futagashira"

The completion screening event of WOWOW's first period drama "Futagashira" was held on 11 June which was attended by cast members Matsuyama Kenichi, Saotome Taichi and Nanao. The drama which began its run from 13 June, is showing at 10pm on Saturdays. This is the first drama series which Matsuyama had acted in since the NHK Taiga "Taira no Kiyomori" 3 years ago. Being a fan of the original manga, Matsuyama said that he was very happy to be involved in the production of the drama and satisfied with the end result. Matsuyama also praised Saotome who played his buddy in the drama for being a professional at period dramas and was very confident due to having Saotome by his side. As the manga is still being serialised, the drama's storyline will thus differ from the manga a little bit but Matsuyama hopes to be able to make a sequel again.

As for Nanao, this drama marks a number of firsts for her e.g. her first period drama appearance and her intimate scenes with Narimiya Hiroki. Recounting on the filming, Nanao said that Narimiya would improvise on the scene so she followed his lead thus had little trouble with the intimate scenes.
