Thanks to Ryusuke Nakamura, a friend and co-actor of Mao who had starred with him in "Messiah", we finally get some news about our beloved Mao-kun.
On July 5th in his blog entry for the day Ryusuke encouraged fans to leave comments containing questions about his work, in particular " Messiah" that he would answer in blog entries over the next few days.
Since Mao and Ryusuke starred not only together in "Messiah" but are good friends as well some fans naturally asked about Mao too and Ryusuke was kind enough to answer just as he had promised.
Here are the questions regarding Mao and Ryu-kun's answers:
Though it was some time ago Mao had returned temporarily to Japan.
Did you contact Mao? I wonder if Mao is doing well? I am so anxious.
Answer : .まおは いつでも元気ですよ。 よく連絡 取ってます。
Mao is always fine. We often get in touch.
Did you contact Shusuke recently? ( The other day was his birthday(･∀･))
(A/N: 'Shusuke' is the name of Mao's character in 'Messiah')
Answer : .もちろん。
誕生日に連絡も取りましたよ。 ってか、結構 頻繁にメールしてます。
I contacted him on his birthday. Also we e-mail quite frequently.
He is in good health and trying his best.
In your opinion, who of your co-stars is the one that makes you think “this fellow is stoic!”? ?
Answer : ~ 皆ストイックですけど、
【メサイア ～白銀ノ章～】でまおが座長だった時 稽古が終わった後も ずっと残って筋トレやったり、
Though everyone is stoic my order is
During 【Messiah 〜Hakugin no Shou〜】 Mao was the chachou (leader).
After the practice was over, he stayed behind all the time to do various ways of muscle training and stretching.But I was also there and decided "I don’t go home until everybody else goes too" and somehow we ended up working out and practicing until the rehearsal facility closed (laugh)
Ryusuke doesn't give any information about the duration of Mao's stay abroad and his next homecoming, but he assures us that Mao is doing well and is in good health. To hear that from a source other than Dai-chan, who also always assures me that Mao is doing fine whenever I ask him, makes me incredibly happy and feel more at ease.
Thanks Ryu-kun for your kindness to answer all the questions related to Mao!!!!
