Starting on October 1st, SKE48’s Rena Matsui will be starring in Bee TV’s new mobile drama “Oshare ni Koi Shita Cinderella ~Okarie ga Yumi wo Kanaeru Made”.
Rena undergoes a huge transformation from her usual self to play ‘gyaru’ blogger Okarie – a real person whose name of Rie Okamoto. I hardly recognised Rena in the picture above. I haven’t got a clue what the plot is all about but there is some comedy as Rena herself admitted that she was embarrased to do some comical acting. It’s good for Rena to do something like this – fans naturally will think of her as Gekikara for years as she played that role so well but acting as somebody so completely different from Gekikara will show everybody how diverse she can be in her acting. Personally I think Rena could be a fine actress if she wanted to go down that line in the future.
