It's a fact that actress Sawajiri Erika, who went to Great Britain has frequently been coming back to her home country, though next to commercials and work for monthly magazines, she has actually steadily been preparing to hasten a real comeback.
"Once her tourist visa expires, it will only be a matter of time when the media is going to ask her office 'When will she come back?', but Erika has already been back in May for things like commercials and features in monthly magazines," a person from the office explains.
Erika got a lot of criticism from various kind of sides for her arrogant attitude in the "Betsu ni.." incident in October last year. This year she's been going to Great Britain with her 22 years older lover Takashiro Tsuyoshi, going as far as renting an apartment in London, therefore raising the question whether that's gonna be her exile from the world of show business for real now.
"In late March she returned home for a CM, once finished she went back to London again. It's said that if this CM was canceled, she would have gotten the sack from her office," a public reporter tells us.
However, the circumstances seem to be quite different according to authorized people.
"Erika got suspended from work for one year. In the meantime she studied in Great Britain. Her office and Takashiro supported her through the time of antagonism. Thanks to that she's been more grown up each time she came back here," are the inside informations from a movie company authorized person.
It's said that she stopped receiving offers after the bashing, but in truth she got flooded with requests. "A few movies have already been nominated for her comeback," says an authorized person from a major office.
Let us all believe that this is true and that Erika is soon going to work on a new movie.
