A lot of TV and movie watchers in Japan know about actress Eri Fukatsu（深津絵里）. She's been doing commercials ever since she started in the business, including a famous one for Japan Railways featuring "Christmas Eve" by Tatsuro Yamashita（山下達郎）.
And then there are all those TV dramas and movies she's performed in. For me, she'll always be the tough and acerbic police officer Sumire Onda in "Odoru Dai Sosasen"（踊る大走査線）. A few years ago, she even won the Best Actress award at the Montreal World Film Festival.
