Ashida Mana & Charlotte Kate Fox to star in FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "OUR HOUSE"

Ashida Mana and Charlotte Kate Fox will be the joint leads in the upcoming FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "OUR HOUSE" which will begin its run from April in the Sundays 9pm timeslot. The drama which is written by Nojima Shinji, features Ashida as the second eldest daughter in the family named Sakurako who takes care of things at home after her mother passed away six months ago. To her horror, her father Ban Souta who is a saxophone player (Yamamoto Koji), brings his newly-wed wife Alice (Fox) back from the US after his business trip despite not having dated her for a single day. This leads Sakurako to make plans to chase Alice out of their family. The children of the Ban family will be played by Kato Seishiro who is the eldest son, Terada Kokoro as the third son while newcomer Matsuda Serika who is said to be highly regarded by Nojima, plays the youngest daughter. Matsuda is a special student in the pioneer batch of child actors undergoing training in the actors' school Polar Star which is managed by Nojima who praised her for being a 4-year-old version of former actress Sakurai Sachiko. Co-stars also include Hamada Tatsuomi and Igarashi Hinata.

Among the cast members, some of them have worked together in the past such as Yamamoto and Ashida who acted in the NTV Spring 2010 drama "Mother" while Yamamoto's first signature role was in Nojima's drama "Hitotsu Yane no Shita" 19 years ago. On the other hand, Ashida last worked with Terada in the NTV drama "Ashita, Mama ga inai" 2 years ago.
