In my last article "Who is Lisa Ulliel playing in 'Rurôni Kenshin: The Great Kyôto Fire Arc'?" we were trying to figure out who on earth a french actress/model would play. To my pleasant not-so-much-of-a-surprise, she's fluent in Japanese.
After posting my article on my Twitter, I got that Tweet as a reply. Now ladies and gents, how can she not be playing the character of Tomoe? I literally see this as the only role available since all other major female roles are cast and the only ones left other than Tomoe are from the anime fillers.
I think it's sound logic to assume that this woman will play the role of Kenshins ex-wife, and if this be the case, I am expecting and prepared to cry when they present the flash-back.
Still doubting it's her? Just take a look at my terrible MS Paint skills.
