Some recent reports suggested that Japanese actress Matsushima Nanako is in a jobless crisis.
Nanako was once the most popular Japanese actress before going into pregnancy hiatus. Her popularity dropped rapidly since then… and her drama’s ratings since her comeback were very disappointing by her standard.
Another problem is that despite her fading popularity, Nanako is one of the highest paid Japanese actresses… unless she is willing to cut her pay, she will face tough challenge to attract producers for her next drama or movie.
It’s a pity if Nanako is ‘forced’ to retire this way, she is an excellent actress.
