Matsushima Nanako to play Kanno Miho's scary neighbour in TBS Autumn 2016 drama "Suna no Tou ~ Shirisugita Rinjin"

Matsushima Nanako will be appearing in the upcoming TBS Autumn 2016 drama "Suna no Tou ~ Shirisugita Rinjin" opposite the lead Kanno Miho as the latter's scary neighbour. This is the first time in 16 years that the two actresses are appearing in the same drama since TBS' 2000 drama SP "Hyakunen no Monogatari".

In this new drama, Kanno plays a housewife Takano Aki who has just moved into a high-rise condominium complex with her family but finds herself being attacked by her neighbour Yumiko (Matsushima) who appears perfect to everyone around them yet wants to make trouble for her new neighbour by manipulating the other residents. Matsushima commented that although she and Kanno had worked together briefly 16 years ago, this is the first time when they will be spending a lot of time "fighting" each other so she is eagerly anticipating their collaboration this time.

Oh wow, I had not expected Nanako to take this up! This will be interesting to watch - Miho vs Nanako. I hope the script is good!

I'm quite surprised that she's willing to take a supporting role this time. Perhaps there is something about her character that attracted Matsushima to disregard the fact that she is playing second fiddle. Besides, she won't have to bear the ratings pressure as a supporting actress. She already looks quite sinister in this photo so I'm looking forward to seeing how evil she can be in the drama.

The expression reminds me of Kaseifu no Mita. Lookingh forward for Kanno Miho - Mitsushima duet!
