Eiko Koike - Beautiful Japanese Actress
Beautiful Japanese Actresses - Eiko Koike
Beautiful Japanese actress Eiko Koike was born on November 20, 1980 in Tokyo, Japan.
Not only is this young lady beautiful, but she knows how to have fun.
Her husband, Wataru Sakata, is a Japanese professional wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter.
And Eiko has worked with PRIDE Mixed Martial Arts as a spokesperson and commentator.
She got into the matches so much that when MMA champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira lost his title to Fedor Emelianenko, she teared up and began to cry while announcing.
Wataru then moved from PRIDE to the Japanese wrestling promotion HUSTLE and Eiko followed.
To understand HUSTLE, think about what it would look like if the WWE did not even trying to take itself seriously.
Case in point, Eiko was called Yosei (Fairy in Japanese) and she accompanied her husband to the ring. Wataru was facing a "unstoppable wrestling cyborg" called The Esperanza.
Wataru won the match when Yosei (Eiko) managed to deflect one of Esperanza's "Spirit Gun Bolts" back at him.
Really people...you can't just make this stuff up.
Eiko has been in several Japanese films, including 2LDK, which was released on video here in the US.
Eiko was in a movie in Japan in 2008 called "Pako to mahô no ehon". She played the character Masami.
Eiko is in the Japanese TV series "Kiina: Fukanô hanzai sôsakan" this year.
She also is in 20-seiki shônen: Dai 2 shô - Saigo no kibô as Takasu and she has another movie coming out called Ningen shikkaku coming out in 2010.
She appeared in the drama series "Sumairu" (Smile), the film 20th Century Boys 3: Redemption and another film It's on Me.
Eiko is staying very busy in 2010 with appearances in films like Ranbô to taiki, Pâmamento Nobara, Hito no sabaku and The Fallen Angel.
She's also appearing in TV shows like GM: Odore dokutâ, Neo the Office Chuckler and Shukumei 1969-2010: Once Upon a Time in Tokyo.
Also, Eiko won the Best Actress award for her performance in the film Seppun at the 2009 Yokohama Film Festival.
In 2011 Eiko appeared in "Crossroads", "Majutsu wa sasayaku" and "Yôkame no semi".
She also came in on Jonathan Solomon's Top 5 MMA Chicks list (because of the time she spent with PRIDE) over at 411mania.com

Maho Nonami and Eiko Koike star in 2LDK, a 2003 Japanese film that really has to be seen to be believed.
They star as two actresses, who share an apartment, who find out that they are up for the same part.
But they have to wait overnight to see who gets the part.
Tensions increase and the night turns into a catfight of epic proportions.
It is a real life example of "Well that escalated quickly".
By the way, 2LDK stands for a 2 bedroom apartment with a Living room, Dining room, and Kitchen
