AKB48's Takajo Aki lands her first lead role in drama 'SAVEPOINT'

Takajo Aki

It's been revealed that AKB48's Takajo Aki has landed her first lead role in TV Tokyo's drama 'SAVEPOINT' (premieres June 5, every Thursday at 2:35 am). She will play the role of a special unit police officer, and will challenge herself to action scenes, as well as a scene where she chops off her long hair. 

Takajo's dream was to become an actress, even before she joined AKB48. "To work in a drama by myself as a lead role is like a dream so I'm extremely happy," she expressed. Regarding the scene where she cuts her hair, she revealed, "Honestly, I was uneasy about it, but I made up my mind to do it in order to perfect my role.

Takajo also made a comment on the action scenes, "I trained my body. In order to show myself as strong and cool, I left my idol self somewhere else while I concentrated on these scenes." She then enthusiastically said, "In AKB48, I don't think there are too many members who can do action, I wanted to what only I can do."

The drama will be directed by Nakai Yu. It will also star Ogi Shigemitsu, Tatsumi Aoi, Uchibori Katsutoshi, Yokota Shingo, and Nozawa Ippei.
