I am a Japanese movie reporter living in Los Angeles since early 80s.
One aspect of my work is to interview Hollywood movie stars and
write about them for Japanese publications. However, I have been
a Brigitte Lin Ching Hsia fan since 1995 and it was always my dream
to interview her. I do not speak any Chinese although I recognize
many Chinese characters (most of them are the origin of Japanese
kanji). Nevertheless, I interviewed her, as well as her friends
and colleagues, several times over the years. The Last Star of The
East: Brigitte Lin Ching Hsia and Her Films is the result of these
My next project will focus on Anita Mui Yim Fong, which I will write in my native
language of Japanese. I believe in dreams and in the power of believing, so I
will make that happen, as well.
