Eri ishikawa final

Eri Ishikawa (石川 絵里, Ishikawa Eri) is a Japanese actress. She was born on December 25th 1981 in Tokyo, Japan

She is perhaps best known in the west for her role as Yukie Utsumi in the controversial 2000 film Battle Royale.

She and actress Satomi Ishii are very close friends, just like their characters Yukie and Haruka Tanizawa were. The actresses who played Yukie, Haruka, Yuko Sakaki, Chisato Matsui, Yuka Nakagawa and Satomi Noda all traveled, ate, and hung out together during production to distract themselves from the violent, depressing tone of the scene where their characters kill each other.
