Kyoko Natsume is a great new star of Pink Eiga. Her acting skill was obvious from her debut and has gained recognition. She was born in Tokyo, Japan, on July 3rd, 1978. She stands 5’5” and weighs 50 Kg, about 110 lbs. She started working on television shows, commercials and the theater, and turned to Pink Eiga in 2004. Her debut performance garnered immense praise. Since then, she has continued to act regularly in Pink Eiga films. She was awarded New Best Actress at the Pink Eiga Film Festival in 2005.
Natsume has a chic and mature disposition, and can express ennui and listless feelings very convincingly. In her first Pink Eiga, “Swapping Wives” (directed by Daisuke Goto), she portrays a wife stuck in a sexless marriage, and expresses her character’s fatigue with their relationship. In “Love Square” (directed by Rei Sakamoto), she plays a woman who has trouble deciding between her boyfriend and her lover.
