Tao Okamoto in The Wolverine


Some models make random movie appearances that you’d never expect – Cara Delevingne in Anna Karenina, Daria Strokous in Contagion and Gemma Ward in Pirates of the Caribbean – and now let’s take a look at Tao Okamoto as the next model-turn-actress in her new role as Mariko Yashida, a one-time fiance to Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). She appeared for less than 5 seconds in the newly released trailers but you can tell that she has quite a few scenes with the male lead, this one in the rain totally shows off her Shu Uemura-pampered porcelain skin. She’s looking deeply into The Wolverine’s eyes. Good for a Steven Klein editorial.

The film should be out in late July so watch out for it Tao fans!
