Acting Filmography


Best known for her role of Miki Saegusa in every single entry in the Godzilla Heisei series, with the sole exception of The Return of Godzilla (1984), Megumi Odaka started out her film career in the 1987 film Princess of the Moon alongside Yasuko Sawaguchi; coincidentally, she was later forced to take second place to Yasuko Sawaguchi in Toho's "Cinderella" contest. The contest, however, placed Odaka in the limelight, and she later landed the role of Miki Saegusa in Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989). Before landing the role, Odaka had never seen a Godzilla film before and was at first afraid of the Godzilla suit until befriending suitmation actor Ken Satsuma.

Although Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989) failed to achieve box office success, Toho was impressed with Odaka's performance and asked her to reprise her role two years later in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991), which went on to be successful. She would reprise her role of Miki Saegusa in all of the following entries in the Godzilla Heisei series until its end in 1995 with Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. She has said, though, that as long as Godzilla films are being made she would "like to come back and appear in them as Miki Saegusa."
