I AM IN MAO'S PHOTOBOOK, NO JOKE ♥♥♥ (hibimaosuki) wrote in twistedhalo711,

Watanabe Daisuke x Hamao Kyousuke crosstalk - GoodCome vol.19




WATANABE
At the end of the previous movie, we were asked to do the next one. However, it never crossed my mind that it was too early at the time. But honestly, I was happy about it.


HAMAO
That's true. Takumi and Gii didn't have a lot of scenes in the last movie, so when I heard that this time I would star with Gii again, I was really happy! It's only a short span from the last one, and working together as Gii and Takumi we'd become really good friends, so we went straight into our roles.


WATANABE
For my role, it's the same as from [Bibou], as a first year, second year, and as a third year, there were difficulties in properly portraying those, but how was it for you, Mao?


HAMAO
This time, there's something we've never actually seen up to now. Takumi's older brother is the base of the story. For Takumi, the issues between him and his older brother who is a very important existence in his life, it was really difficult for me to show just how deep they were. I had a very hard time creating that sort of Takumi. [1]


WATANABE
I see. I was thinking about it too much, it might not be good for my own portrayal of Gii? That's what I felt, and what [Gii] was thinking at that time was important. Even when we were doing the scene where Gii wants to go [with Takumi] to visit his brother's grave, instead of overthinking ways to perform that, I showed my feelings as honestly as I could, that was what I really wanted to be important. Those really brave words, the anxiety of possibly being rejected, "I want to convey my own emotions" and it was with that thought that I played my role. Well, thinking about it previously, this time we really wanted to show the best relationship between Takumi and Gii, I think both of us were able to express that properly.


HAMAO
That's right. I felt the pressure of wanting to be a Takumi that was better than the last time, and there were difficulties in creating and showing his emotions, but I'll do the best that I can! That feeling challenged me.


WATANABE
This is the last time the two of us will be Takumi and Gii, the culmination. In order for us to fully show the audience this sentiment, there was pressure on both of us to have backbone in our performance; otherwise, we shouldn't do it at all.


HAMAO
Yeah.


WATANABE
But we didn't think to worry -- me, Takumi, and the rest of the cast. During [Niji-iro], we've known each other since before that. Portraying such a relationship, both of us were rather lost at first, huh. Back then, the two of us got along just fine, but nowadays we can understand each other even without speaking.


HAMAO
We do.


WATANABE
No words are said between us, but [talking] is a means to encourage each other. Since we're naturally born that way, I thought it was weird (laughs). And besides, Mao has gotten much better than he was in the beginning at being focused over long periods of time.


HAMAO
You think so (blush)?


WATANABE
I didn't have that sort of focus when I was a teenager, I think. So I think that you've been growing up really well, particularly in that aspect.


HAMAO
Thank you. And now I feel really shy (laughs). But Dai-chan's great at focusing too! Before slipping into his role, he'd tell us amusing things, and though he's the mood maker, once he becomes Gii, he stays that way until the end of the job. He's really been an influence on me.


WATANABE
Glad to hear that.


HAMAO
Moreover, he really looks at the surroundings. When I'm pondering my role, he'll ask me "Are you okay?", he has such a big heart. I feel that I want to be an actor like Dai-chan from now on. I really respect him!


WATANABE
Thank you (laughs)!! With us concluding our work like this, I'd like for everyone to watch without blinking!




[1] Understandable! Mao has a very close relationship with his own older brother and as far as I know, no issues such as those between Takumi and Naoto exist between Mao and Shinnosuke.
