It's been reported that singer Matsuda Seiko will be starring in the 2012 NHK Taiga drama, "Taira no Kiyomori"!

Matsuda will play the role of 'Gion no Nyougo', an expert in song and dance entertainment, who watches over 'Kiyomori' (Matsuyama Kenichi) in his early childhood days. Afterwards, she changes her name and appears as the singing teacher who consults 'Kiyomori' and 'Emperor Shirakawa'.

"I want to do my best to play the wonderful role of 'Gion no Nyougo'," commented Matsuda.Meanwhile, producer Iso Tomoaki stated, "Arguing the influential characters on equal terms, the role is essential, as she is a mother-figure for Kiyomori. Matsuda-san is perfect, because she doesn't lose her radiance."
