I first noticed her in a few j-dramas a year or so back.
I really had no idea she was in the drama version of Taiyou no uta タイヨのうた
(A Song to the Sun), in which she co-starred in.

She was in this years annual New Years Japanese TV show Kouhaku Uta Gassen, and co-host along with Arashi. She also performed her own song instrumental on piano to her theme song of the japanese drama she stars in, Gegege no Nyobo (NHK, 2010).

This young beauty has a lot of talent, and is excellent on the piano.

I'll post up the Youtube video of her below:

I first saw her in Sunadokei and then a few other times. Honestly, the only thing that caught my attention was her height, not really her acting. Sweat Thought, I didn't see Gegege no Nyobo, so not sure if her acting improved there.

I did also notice her height, and elegance at the Kouhaku Uta Gassen, she really show how graceful and beautiful she is as co-host. At 174cm tall, she was taller than some of the Arashi guys. Her performance at the piano was stunning, and the video clips in her latest drama does depict some fine acting on her part, but I have yet to watch it for myself, her latest drama.

Nao Matsushita to star in Fuji TV Spring 2016 drama

Matsushita Nao will be starring in the upcoming FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "Hayako-sensei, Kekkon surutte hontou desuka?" (Teacher Hayako, is it true that you are getting married?) which will begin its run from April in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. The drama which is based on the same-titled 4-column manga serialised via goo blogs from October 2009 and moved to Ameblog in March 2010, features Matsushita as Tatsuki Hayako, a 34-year-old primary school teacher who is not concerned about her single status so far but finds herself unwittingly joining her colleagues in a group which aspires to find marriage partners through arranged meetings and group dates thus leading her to think more about the meaning of romance, family and life.

Hayako has a rather frank personality who doesn't like to listen to other people's advice and prefers to find her own answers. In front of her students, Hayako is a very forgiving and kind teacher but in private, she has a huge appetite, loves drinking and muscle training and would not shy away from making strange faces or performing crude impersonations in front of others. As she is content with her life and work, Hayako is not in a hurry to get married and believes that she will get to doing that one day.

One day, Hayako happens to see a photo album of a person who her parents wanted to introduce her to through an arranged meeting but kept it in a drawer in the end without saying a thing as they pretended not to be too concerned whether their daughter is going to get married. Shortly after, Hayako's father Tatsushi (Bido Isao) falls ill and is hospitalised. Although Hayako suggests that her parents should close down their family business (a tofu shop) so that they can take it easy, she is surprised to see her mother Naoko (Matsuzaka Keiko) try her best to keep the shop going despite not being skilled in the art of making tofu and realises what it means to have a longstanding relationship where two people are bound by a strong bond. This leads her to think seriously about finding someone who can be such a couple with her and joins the konkatsu domei (alliance to get hitched) with her single female colleagues Kugayama Mika (Kanjiya Shihori), Narimasu Umeko (Sato Hitomi) and another male colleague Sendaki Rentaro (Yashima Norito). Co-stars also include Yamauchi Keiya and Tanokura Yuta who play Hayako's married colleagues.

In order to prepare for the role, Matsushita cut her hair by 30cm which is the shortest she has had in 15 years since she was a senior high school student. As such, Matsushita is not used to seeing herself in this hairstyle as she has been having long hair since she made her debut. Nonetheless, she hopes that with this new hairstyle, this will prepare her for the role in this drama. Matsushita also said that she can identify with Hayako's circumstances especially since most people would have assumed while they were kids that they would get married once they became adults. However, in her case, she's satisfied with her current situation in work and thinks that marriage is somewhat far from her thoughts now.

Nao Matsushita to star in TBS drama Special

Matsushita Nao will be starring in the new TBS drama SP "Oufukushokan ~ Juugonen go no Hoshuu" (Correspondence ~ The supplementary tuition after 15 years) which will be shown on 30 September at 8.57pm. The drama SP is adapted from one of the stories "Juugonen go no Hoshuu" in Minato Kanae's short novels compilation "Oufukushokan". Matsushita plays the role of the heroine Okano Mariko who got embroiled into an incident involving her classmate when she was in junior high. As a result, she lost her memory due to the shock. Suddenly, through her mail correspondence with her boyfriend Nagata Junichi (Ichihara Hayato) who was her junior high school classmate and is on assignment as an international volunteer at a frontier town, she starts to remember fragments of her past. At the same time, a new murder case happens which leads Mariko to find out the truth behind the case which happened 15 years ago. Kaga Takeshi plays the role of Kameyama Ryuzo who is in-charge of the cases 15 years ago and now.

Matsushita said that she has been a fan of Minato's books and is always excited about the unexpected developments in her stories. In the original novel, the correspondence between Mariko and Junichi offers a blend of suspense and romance elements so she hopes to be able to convey the emotions of her character through this drama SP.
