Japanese actresses seem to be finding a place in the world of American TV. Rila Fukushima landed a guest spot on the fifth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and a recurring role on The CW’s “Arrow,” while Tao Okamoto put in a fantastic turn as Chiyo in the third season of NBC’s “Hannibal.” The latest to take her bow is Kiki Sukezane.

Sukezane is part of the cast of “Heroes Reborn,” a followup to the 2006-10 show “Heroes” that features some of the original cast members returning, including Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet) and Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura). There are a number of new faces as well, including Sukezane and Japan-raised Toru Uchikado. Sukezane will play Miko Otomo; a mysterious young girl from Tokyo searching for her missing father.
