Biography

Best known, outside of her music work, for her role as the title character in Azumi (2003) and Azumi 2: Death or Love (2005), Aya Ueto, like most "idols" in Japan, specializes in acting, singing and modeling. In 1997, Ueto won a "Judges' Special Choice" award at the All-Japan National Bishoujo Contest, which in turn landed her numerous TV commercial appearances and roles in various TV shows.

Ueto has been incredibly active since starting her career in 1999 at the age of 14, and has picked up numerous "newcomer" awards during the early stages of her career. However, her work on movies is relatively small, with the actress called upon more for voiceover roles rather than onscreen appearances, such as dubbing the Trixie character in the 2008 movie Speed Racer for its Japanese release.
