Hello and nice to meet you! My name is Risa Kameda. Please call me Risa. I am so so so happy to say that I will be appearing in Tokyo Cowboys' next film.
I met Chris through a play that we did together in 2016. It was a live version of the anime "Fairytail." We rehearsed the show together in Tokyo and then I played the villain in the Shanghai production. We really got to know each other during those three months of hard work!
Chris had some trouble getting used to the Japanese way of doing theater, but he always kept his chin up and always stayed positive. One day he said to me, "You've taken such good care of me. I'll write you something one day." I couldn't believe it when that call finally came that he had a part for me.
I was very surprised when I read the script. The part that I am playing reminds me so much of me. I wonder if Chris wrote it that way subconsciously. I couldn't believe it!
Even though we only worked together for a short while, it felt so good to be thought of all these months later. Since this film is a short film it feels like we will once again only be together for a short while as well. It's crazy to say but I already feel lonely thinking about parting ways again once the filming is finished!
