Model and actress who worked for a Japanese fashion magazine called ViVi, as well as for the Japanese version of Seventeen magazine. In 2017, she starred in the Japanese film Okuda Tamio ni Naritai Boy.
She made her television debut in a Japanese series entitled Yae no Sakura.
Her screen credits include roles in such Japanese films as Helter Skelter, I’m Flash!, and Platinum Data.
She was born to an American father and a Japanese-Korean mother. She has one sister, Ashley.
She and actress Rinko Kikuchi both appeared in Norwegian Wood, a 2010 Japanese film.We met Kiko on a Sunday morning in the midst of the “Golden Week”, the biggest Japanese holiday. Her manager told us that she hadn’t been able to get proper sleep the day before the photo shoot because the drama shooting got delayed for more than 5 hours. In the drama “Kokoro ga Pokitto ne”that is currently airing on Fuji TV, Kiko plays the character of Miyako, a woman quite emotionally unstable with a stalker tendency. It’s the first time that she portrays the lead girl. “In one word, I’ve never been around someone like this character. I think having a friend like her would have been very troublesome and annoying. Miyako’s unstable personality comes from her loneliness. She hopes that others would understand her, she wants to control herself, but she’s not very good at it, and this brings her loneliness. Her character is somewhat exaggerated, but I think anyone can feel this kind of loneliness and conflict at some extent.” Kiko had arrived to the studio on the Kujukuri coast while wearing a white long-sleeve t-shirt with denim shorts and white socks pulled up to her ankles. No trace of exhaustion could be found on her clear skin free of makeup and she was overflowing with energy like a teenager who came to play at her friend’s house.
The editor eventually couldn’t hold it and asked the stereotyped question that she must have been asked countless times. “What to do to get such skin and such hair?” And Kiko answered like a good student, “you can maintain soft hair if you don’t dye your hair. The color I have right now is my true hair color. Ever since I was a kid, I think skin isn’t quite easy to tame and to take care of. I remove my makeup quite fast after work is over and I think working up a sweat is important, so my skin care routine goes up to do lower-body bathing on a regular basis. When my skin is dry or is tanned, I sometimes use steam pack or whitening mask, but if it’s possible, I think not putting too much pressure on your skin by using natural methods is good.”
