Profle: Chiaki Kuriyama

from where they call her Chiaki Kuriyami for some reason (?)

American fans of Asian action cinema will recognize Chiaki Kuriyama instantly from Kinji Fukasaku's 2000 cult classic Battle Royale, a savage SF satire in which teams of school-uniformed teens are pitted against each other in lethal elimination games. Kuriyama made an indelible impression as the fetching but ruthless flick-knife fighter Takako Chigusa.

Kuriyama was a successful child model who began acting in films and on television at age 11. A recent high school graduate with only four feature films and a handful of TV appearances to her credit, at nineteen she is a full-fledged teen idol in Japan, with all that implies in terms of custom-produced record albums and coffee-table photo collections.

Feature film appearances include Toire no Hanako-san (1995), the popular horror thriller Shikoku (Dead Country, 1999), and the upcoming Kamen Gakuen (Persona). Her TV successes include the series Multiple Personality Detective Psycho (2000). Chiaki Kuriyama has studied classical ballet and gymnastics and cites Trainspotting and Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction as her favorite movies.
