Actress Daniela Junko was blessed with the kind of breathtakingly exotic features that stop both men and women in their tracks. Originally born in Sao Paulo, Brazil to a Brazilian mother and a Japanese father, Daniela Junko has lived all over the world and experienced many different ways of life.
“Once you live among different cultures, which in my case incudes Norway, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, and the US, the experience gives you a priceless understanding of diversity and how to operate within it,” said Daniela Junko.
Giving her an incredible edge in the entertainment industry, the elusive nature of Ms. Junko’s ethnic origins make her an easy cast for a wide variety of roles.
In the hit crime series Point of Entry, which airs on channel 5 in Asia, Junko played the riveting role of a Thai woman who was abducted and abused by a ruthless drug cartel. Junko’s versatility as an actress and the fact that she has lived among many different cultures allowed her to flawlessly transition into the role of the Thai woman where she delivered her dialog in Thai, something few actress can accomplish.
“The episode was the show’s highest rated ever, and it taught me a lot about my capabilities as an actress,” said Junko.
Ms. Junko also starred in the psychological thriller Rough Mix, a feature film intended for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Junko’s performance in the role of Janelle, a successful Asian pop star that appears to have it all from the outside, while on the inside she is dying for a taste of true love, is mind-blowing. In the film Junko starred alongside Asian icon Kay Tong Lim who is known for his roles in the films Brokedown Palace, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, It Could Happen to You, The Photograph, City Sharks, and many more.
“Playing Janelle was a very rewarding experience and my most enjoyable character,” said Junko. “At the end of the movie her pain was so real to me, that we had many people on our crew trying to hide their tears.”
