Biography
Best known for her role of Aki in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice and Princess Selina Salno in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964), Wakabayashi was a prominent actress near the end of the "Golden Age" of Japanese cinema. Although her own career was dwarfed by Kumi Mizuno's and Mie Hama's, Wakabayashi remains one of Toho's most memorable actresses. She dabbled in just about every genre during her career, but was best known for her roles in Toho's Kaiju films. Wakabayashi's career ended, rather abruptly, after her appearance in You Only Live Twice, as her last role would be for the Japanese production Diamonds of the Andes, a year later, before she left the industry.
