About me

Japanese actress Ann Ayano was born and raised in Tokyo. Since its premiere on April 30, 2022, she has been performing in the stage adaptation of Mieko Kawakami's novel "Breasts and Eggs" at the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, under the direction of Christopher Rüping. She has appeared in the Netflix series "Hello" and played the lead role in the sci-fi film "Immortal." She also collaborates with some of Japan's most renowned directors, such as Hideki Noda and Tetsu Taoshita, as well as conductors like Michiyoshi Inoue and Alexander Lazarev.


Ann Ayano graduated from the Faculty of Nihon University College of Art, specializing in Theater Acting. She further honed her acting skills at Actor's Space Berlin and Chubbuck Studio Berlin. Her special talents include ballet, contemporary dance, opera, and kickboxing. Her hobbies are reading and spending time with dogs.


In 2015, she relocated to Berlin and was chosen as the lead actress in the play "The Fall of Babel" written by Yoko Tawada and directed by Matthias Rebstock, at the Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele. She also took on the French narrating role in the Japan premiere of "Stravinsky: Perséphone"; a performance that has been released on CD. She is currently also acting as a producer for the project "Enoch Arden." An action film she produced herself has garnered more than 80,000 views on YouTube.

She currently resides in both Berlin and Tokyo, and leverages her language skills in her native language Japanese, as well as in foreign languages such as German, French, and English for international film appearances.
