Biography

Best remembered by audiences abroad for her role of Chiaki Moriyuma in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991), Kiwako Harada was born in 1965. At around the age of 20, both she and her younger sister, Tomoyo Harada, entered the entertainment business. Where as her sister became more of a face on the musical scene, though, Kiwako Harada found better success in acting roles. The two both fell into the "idol" category, being models, actors, and singers, but each focused on different areas to different degrees. Kiwako Harada really hit her acting career running too, landing a roll in the Italian production Days of Hell in 1986 along with acting in three Japanese productions that same year.

Despite differences in focus, the two sisters would often cross paths in the entertainment world, with one of the most obvious examples being when the two starred alongside each other in the 1987 movie Take Me Out to the Snowland. For Kiwako Harada, though, her boom would happen in the late 1980's and early 1990's, before she vanished from film, relegated to TV roles for almost a decade before resurfacing in a few theatrical productions by other studios.
