Airi Man starred in SNOWCHILD as the main character Yukiko (Snowchild). Snowchild was her film debut.
“Finding the right actress for Snowchild was quite a challenge. She had to play two very different characters within the film: the outgoing and witty teenager on the one hand, the introverted heart broken girl that lost her voice on the other. I had nearly given up after month of search in Japan with the help of my Casting Director, until one day Airi Man entered the production office in Tokyo. I knew very soon that it had to be her. We decided on working together and develop the role of Yukiko in a manner, that would suit her character and origin.“ (Uta Arning, Writer, Director, Producer of Snowchild)
Since Snowchild Airi Man has been successful acting in TV Dramas and Cinema. This year the following films and TV Dramas starring Airi Man will be released: 乙女のレシピ Otome no recipe, はなればなれに Hanarebanareni, 乾き Kawaki, ホットロード Hot road, TV drama 今夜は心だけ抱いて Konya ha kokorodake daite
