Anna Nakagawa discusses Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah has long been one of the genre's most popular entries. The film's star, Anna Nakagawa, played one of the best characters in the Heisei-era Godzilla series, Emmy Kano. However, Ms. Nakagawa's stories have never been covered by Western sources. Until now.

On February 11, 2012, I had the privilege of interviewing Anna Nakagawa for G-FAN magazine. We met at Ulf Otsuki's cafe in the morning and had a laid-back, informal interview (more like a chat, actually) that lasted about 30 minutes. After interviewing so many of the cast and crew of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, I wasn't sure there was anything new for me to learn about the movie. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how wrong I was!

The interview in progress.

As tempted as I am to share some anecdotes, I've got to save something for publication! I think everyone who reads the interview will be as impressed as I was. Ms. Nakagawa had many fond (and funny!) memories to share.

That's a wrap! Yours truly with Anna Nakagawa (and G-FAN).

Keep an eye out for the interview in the next few issues of G-FAN! It'll certainly be worth the wait!

  2. Hey, Jules. Actually, we tried to get her in 2006 for G-FEST (to pair her with Kazuki Omori), but it didn't happen. Not sure of the reason, as it was before I was in contact with her. She's still very active, but we'll see what happens.
