Singer/model/actress Nakashima can now add “Zombie” to her extensive resume, as she plays an interesting role in the upcoming movie, “Resident Evil: Afterlife”. In the introductory scene, Nakashima’s character attacks a fellow pedestrian as he passes through the Shibuya “Scramble Intersection” in Tokyo, effectively marking her as the ‘patient zero’ in the film.
Though there is no dialogue, Nakashima commented that she felt “honored to have been taken part” in the film. The director and his wife, Milla Jovovich, directly approached the singer-actress with an offer for the role, and were very supportive of her throughout filming.
Promotional posters plastered all over Shibuya have increased interest in the film, as they show a picture of a Japanese woman above the tagline, “The First Infected Victim.”
