Most famous for stint as a singer and her role in Kadokawa's Ju-on: The Grudge 2, Noriko Sakai began her career in the music industry and launched her debut single at the young age of 16 in 1987. The single was a modest hit, selling 40,000 copies, as Sakai remained a prolific singer through out the rest of the 1980's. However, she quickly turned to the "idol circuit" in Japan, taking on a job as both a model and the role of an actress in TV shows. It wasn't until the late 1990's, though, that Sakai entered the theatrical arena. Since then, Sakai has only appeared in a hand full of films, only one of which, Premonition (2004), has been produced by Toho.
