Career[edit]

Amami joined the Takarazuka Revue in 1987 and retired in 1995. Amami was the youngest actress in the company's history to be cast in a top male role. As an otokoyaku (男役 male role?), she belonged to the Moon Troupe (Tsuki).

She was involved in various famous musicals when she was in the company, including Gone With the Wind, where she starred as Rhett Butler, and Me and My Girl. After resigning from the company, she continues to work as a TV and movie actress. Her most notable role is that of Maya Akutsu the main character in The Queen's Classroom.[1]

In May 2013 Amami suffered a mild heart attack after performing in the stage production “L’honneur de Napoleon” at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre. Although she wanted to return, she decided to bow out on doctor's advice. She wrote a gracious letter of apology to her fans. [2] [3]
