Nakashima-san really suits the image of Nana. Once, while on set she made a mistake with the lines, what she said wasn’t even close to the original dialog. When asked why that happened, she answered, “I said the lines from the manga instead by mistake.” At that time, I could see that she really likes Nana.”
