Actress Taylor

It is a Japanese women for sure, I just listened to it without watching and you can hear so much that's a native speaker. It doesn't even come close to her voice. Also, she has a strong accent and alwys failed to pronounce even the easiest words in Japanese.

Seems to be about love though, not freindship. So prepare for jealous fan girls of this dude lol

The concept of the Drama is really cheap and unoriginal (like so many others) but I still would like to see how she presents herself in it.

I'm super pumped for this but I also feel as if she's not going to be a great actress. Maybe I'm saying that because I've never seen her actually portray any acting skills before. She might be amazing for all I know..

@vader_chan thanks so much for the link!

Oh, its seems its her voice. Not so bad I have to say (especially because she couldnt speak japanese at all) ! Could it be that its not always her voice? Sometimes it doesnt sound like her voice. Her voice is deep and she has a quite heavy accent, but sometimes its high and fluent! oO And her acting is weird! Tooooo exeggerated!

Watch around 3:40 its switches from the japanese voice to her real voice! Its obvious because even the sound changes! Another example, at 6.40 its again her own voice, its slower and you can noticed she as to concentrate to speak japanese (but it is not bad!). (compare it to the voice at around 7:00 (or 7:36 "なぜそのこと", and at 14:50 its a long section with her own voice), its jumps between these two voices)

Exacty when its her voice it really sounds scripted. I think so too. Its not totally bad, and it was her first time acting (I have to consider that), but its really weird. :derp:

Thats just anatomy. Every human has one eye bigger than the other one, but by some people is it more visible than by others.

The difference in eyes is absolutely no problem, it's just so lame that she always edits it and claims she doesn't. Now we have almost a movie prooving it.

About the drama lol :D:D I just watched first 5 min, and I don't think I can manage much more. This is such a garbage with such a bad and boring acting (not just Taylor), looks like the budget that they had is 0, and even I didn't excpect it to be low quality, this is much worse than I thought.

I thought Taylor wants some kind of quality at least, but she only wants quantity... this "drama" is awful

i am putting my two cents here !

i agree with all of you that her acting and japanese skills are bad. it really must have been a cheap production. and also her role in this dorama is annoying af. i noticed that the male actor often seemed bored ~ haha !!!

But honestly , in this dorama taylor represents all the crazy foreigner weaboos girls , very well. The style and overacting , reminds me of venus or himezawa ... idk why ! however, no need to mention her fucked up face there and why does she always have to widen her eyes so much ??! it looks scary ... 

all in all, the dorama was boring and taylor wasn't the big hit , as i have expected. i am curious if her career is going to be pushed now or if she is staying at the same level.

 

here are some screenshots ( not " my chocolate site" pictures of taylor )

I agree that the acting isn't top notch (the Japanese I cannot judge) but in her defence I have to say 1. the character she played was obviously supposed to be the annoying hyper foreign girl and 2. for someone who does not speak (fluent) Japanese and who has had limited to no prior acting experience, I have to credit her for her guts and honestly it could have been a lot worse. Like I'm confident some other Canadian ditz would have completely messed it up. Also, who cares? A lot of people (someone posted a link to a forum on lolcow that I google translated) are raving about her beautiful doll-like appearance, so this is gonna boost her career in one way or another. If not in acting then at least in modeling.

What annoys me the most is really her character マリー, because she seems like a caricature (i hope its the right word) of a western girl, interested in japanese culture. Even her clothing is like a joke (I know many people here like it and thats not a problem! Its cute! But combined with her personality here and these clothes its over-the-top like piggy mentioned). But I think its because more and more western girls like her are coming to Japan? Its a cliche, I know, but I think thats the reason why they created such a character. And honestly, I dont want to think of me, a western girl, as a joke. Sorry maybe I take this too far. Maybe I interpreting too much. Of course I still love Japan! :alpacaworry2:

 

Here is one of the best acting scenes lol This is gold xD You have to watch it! (sorry for so many screenshots!)
