Ueno Juri

Juri Ueno, born May 25, 1986 in Kakogawa, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, is a popular Japanese actress. Juri's family consists of her parents and two older sisters. As a child Juri Ueno excelled at track and ran short distance races until the first grade of middle school. Because of problems with hyperventilation she then gave up running. In 2002, Juri started her career in entertainment by appearing in a CF for J-Phone. That year, Juri would also make her first television drama appearance in the NHK series "Seizon". The following year in 2003, Juri made her acting debut in "Summer of Chirusoku" (Chirusoku no natsu) and also appeared later that year in "Josee, the Tiger and the Fish." By 2004, Juri experienced her breakthrough role in the feel-good comedy "Swing Girls." She played a high school student that falls in love with jazz music and her performance would garner her the best newcomer award during that year's Japanese Academy Awards.
