Top 10 Famous Japanese Actresses In Hollywood

Added by Andrew Tyson on Jun 18, 2021

Keiko Kitagawa

Birthplace: Kobe, Japan

With a small part in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and early work in the live action Sailor Moon television series, Kitagawa is recognizable on the international stage but is not a household name. Since The Fast and the Furious, she has had numerous roles in Japanese television series, as well as in movie roles. Her success as an actress in her native country plus a small amount of previous exposure abroad should provide her with the opportunity to step into some major international roles in the future.


Eriko Hatsune

Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan

Playing the long lost love interest in the movie Emperor, opposite Matthew Fox and Tommy Lee Jones, Hatsune made her debut on the international stage in 2012. She has acted in movies and television series in her native Japan since 1999, and is poised to be successful on the world stage.
