Toma Ikuta studied Yu Aoi for his role as a woman

Johnny’s talents Toma Ikuta and Noriyuki Higashiyama showed off their woman characters in front of the press in Tokyo on February 2, reports Oricon.

The two are about to begin the season of their Mishima double stage show of Madame de Sade/わが友ヒットラー (Waga Tomo Hitler, My Friend Hitler), which starts today. The first play, Madame de Sade, is set in 18th century Paris where six women talk about their encounters with an imprisoned aristocrat, Marquis de Sade. The play had required both stars to dress as women.

It has been reported Ikuta had said he was comfortable with his female self.

“I think I look quite cute.”

The talent continued to say his role model was actress Yu Aoi.

“I’m trying to stay as natural, and bubbly cute as I can. (Aoi-san) had visited me during rehearsals and said I looked pretty,” he said.

Looking at his co-star Higashiyama, Ikuta could not help but compliment his agency’s senior.

“He’s cute. I don’t think I’ll be able to see my senior looking like this many times so I’ve burned this image into the back of my mind,” he said.

Higashiyama, however, was not so confident.

“I’ve gotten used to it, but it’s still embarrassing.”

When asked whether he had studied his woman habits from his wife, actress Yoshino Kimura, Higashiyama clearly denied these comments.

“I studied by myself. She’s my rival (in acting) afterall,” he said.

The talent also updated the press on preparations for his wedding.

“We’re still very, very busy so it’ll be a while away. I’ll keep you updated,” he said.

“Mishima Double” will start performances in Tokyo from February 2 to March 2 before moving onto Osaka.
