Ashida Mana To Make Her Hollywood Debut In Pacific Rim

Ashida Mana to make her Hollywood debut in Pacific RimThe first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming “beautiful poem to giant monster movie”, ‘Pacific Rim‘ was released and already it has received a lot of attention.

Paying an homage to Japanese monster movies, the movie stars Japanese actress Kikuchi Rinko alongside English and American actors such as Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba. All of them have already been known to appear in the movie since its production stage, but what has not been known by many is the fact that the movie is also going to feature Japan’s most popular child actress Ashida Mana.

In the trailer it only looks like a cameo, but Mana is actually going to portray the heroine ‘Mako Mori’ (Kikuchi) during her childhood, when legions of giant monsters first started to appear from under the sea.
