Johnny’s talents Toma Ikuta and Noriyuki Higashiyama talked about what it was like working with an A-list cast of actresses for their upcoming movie at an event in Tokyo on November 7, reports The TV.


The stars turned out for the premiere event of “源氏物語 千年の謎 (Genji-monogatari Sen-nen no Nazu, The Tale of Genji: A One-thousand-year mystery)“.  The mystery movie switches between two stories: the story about noblewoman Murasaki Shikibu who wrote “源氏物語 (A Tale of Genji)”, which would later go on to become a literature masterpiece, and the story she wrote about Hikaru Genji, the son of a Japanese emperor, played by Ikuta.


It has been reported the actresses in the movie had said Ikuta looked cool and beautiful at the same time while he was playing Hikaru Genji, a character described in the novel as the most handsome man in the world.  Ikuta in turn talked about one of the challenges he had to overcome during filming as he played the world’s most sought after man.

“I was so nervous when we were shooting the scene where my character makes love to his mother-in-law, played by (Yoko) Maki-san.  We finished filming around three in the morning, but part of me was still in character so one side of me was feeling really guilty for having done it, while the other side of me was still buzzing.  I knew there was no way I would be able to go to sleep straight away if I went back to my hotel so I hung out with some of the production staff for a while before going home.”


Higashiyama, who had also played Hikaru Genji in a different production a number of years ago, said Ikuta’s Hikaru Genji was worth checking out.

“He’s very dirty, but in a good way.  I think Toma is really good at getting women hooked onto him.  I think he’s the best in our agency at expressing it too.  No else but him could’ve done it!”


“源氏物語 千年の謎 (Genji-monogatari Sen-nen no Nazu, The Tale of Genji: A One-thousand-year mystery)” opens in Japan cinemas on December 10.
