Aya Ueto joins cast of Kazunari Ninomiya's 24h TV special drama, "Kurumaisu de Boku wa Sora o Tobu"!
Actress Aya Ueto (26) will play the female lead in the special drama "Kurumaisu de Boku wa Sora o Tobu", which airs on August 25 as part of the 35th Nihon TV 24-hour television charity telethon, it was announced on June 22. Ueto will be starring alongside Kazunari Ninomiya (29) for the first time in twelve years, since the Fuji TV drama "Namida o Fuite". Ueto, who played Ninomiya's sister in the 2000 drama, commented "I'm excited and nervous but very much looking forward to it!"
"Kurumaisu-" is an adaptation of pro-counselor Taizo Hasegawa's non-fiction book "Inochi no Counseling" and tells the story of a wheelchair-bound man, Yasuyuki Hasebe (Ninomiya), who pulls himself out of his misery by becoming a life counselor.

"As a woman, I think this character is someone I can relate to and empathize with," explained Ueto. "I'm reading the script all the while thinking about how Ninomiya might act his scenes out. I'll do my very best until the end so please look forward to watching," she commented with anticipation.
The drama will also star popular child actor Fuku Suzuki, and Hiroko Yakushimaru, who will play the role of Yasuyuki's mother. Suzuki, who played the part of a young Ninomiya in the drama "Freeter, Ie o Kau." commented, "This time we'll actually be acting with each other so I'm excited. I'll do my best!" Yakushimaru, whose role of a mother struggling for independence marks her first time co-starring with Ninomiya, expressed her joy at being cast, saying, "I've been watching his work since he was a teenager, looking forward to someday acting with him. I'm really thrilled and excited."
Producer Hidehiro Kawano commented, "Ueto will bring frustration and hope and Yakushimaru will provide motherly love, tenderness and strength. I'm convinced they will be able to embody these various emotions in this story."

I am waiting for it, too!
And... why was Aya crying in the earlier photo's? Whenever I see her cry, i feel sad for her or any of her characters if it's a Drama...
I didn't see the show, but it appears they showed clips from her childhood. As you know Aya has a very loving family and seeing herself as a little girl may have brought back a flood of special feelings. She is going to be an amazing Mother!
