It’s been revealed that actress/model Sasaki Nozomi is going to play a boss character in TBS’s upcoming midnight drama, “Kaito Royale“.
“Kaito Royale” is a live-action adaptation of a popular social game on Mobage, where players are able to become different types of phantom thieves and collect treasures. The thief characters were already revealed through the two previous announcements ( ), but now we actually got to know one of the boss characters who will make it difficult for the protagonists to snatch away the goods.
Sasaki is going to slip into the role of a machine-gun-wielding nun, who goes by the name of ‘Sister Snake‘. It’s the first time for ’sweet’ Sasaki to play a bad woman, but it looks like she had more problems adapting to the outfit, rather than the role.
She commented, “The outfit is actually divided into many small details and parts, which made it quite difficult to put it on.” She added, “I heard that she is a very bothersome boss for the players in the game, but the drama features an original story. Look forward to find out how she’s going to be involved with the protagonists.”
The producer of the drama explained why they chose Sasaki for the role. He stated, “It’s a role that’s exactly opposite to Sasaki’s existing image. We believe that this gap is going to have a fresh and interesting effect (on the character).”
“Kaito Royale” is said to contain mystery, suspense, action, and (probably) love. The four protagonists are played by Matsuzaka Tori, Omasa Aya, Fukushi Seiji, and Chansung (2PM).
The first episode is scheduled to air on October 28th.
