Takaka Uehara returns to the big screen

SPEED member Takako Uehara (28) has been given her first starring role in a movie. She will headline the cast of “Koitanibashi: La Vallee de l’amour,” directed by Koichi Goto, set for release this summer.

As an actress, Uehara won a Japan Academy Prize Rookie of the Year award for her role in the 1999 movie “Dream Maker.” She has appeared in several other films since then, with her last one being the 2008 movie “Yume no Manimani.”

Looks like I’ll need to add her to my list of actresses from (or with ties to) Okinawa.
