Neat and clean actress Takeuchi Yuko tried out the role of a detective for the first time in the 2010 drama special, “Strawberry Night“, and today it was revealed that she will reprise this role for a full-fledged drama adaption next year.
Takeuchi plays the role of Himekawa Reiko, a non-career female detective who still managed to climb up the ranks in very short time. Her biggest weapon is her incredibly sharp intuition that enables her to know the feelings of a criminal better than the criminal himself.
It’s a fresh role, depicting a female detective that is cold, powerful, in some moments graceful, and yet oh so fragile.
Strawberry Night” is scheduled by Fuji TV to start airing in January of 2012.
