Mika-chan attended the press conference of Despicable Me 2 celebrating the completion of the Japanese dubbed version in Japan yesterday. You’ll find a translation of the questions Mika answered below:
Q : Give us a statement, please.
M : I’m Nakashima Mika. I played the role of Lucy. It was the first time for me to do dubbing and I got so nervous, but I enjoyed very much.
Q : (after watching Mika’s scene…) I’d like to ask Tsurube-san first who knows Nakashima-san personally. How was she?
T : She did well. She’s exactly Lucy. It took 11 hours to complete my part.
M : I’m so embarrassed. I feel embarrassed to hear my voice from a face other than my own for the first time. It took about 5 hours for me.
Q : (after watching another scene…) Let me know how you feel to marry Tsurube-san and to have a daughter by marriage.
M : I thought I got old enough to receive an offer of playing the role of a mother.
Q : I understand you held a national tour this summer. Is there any similarity between singing and playing?
M : I think that it may be easier to express my feelings to audience when I act a little excessively.
Q : If Minions really exsist, what would you do with them?
M : I’d want to make them my tour dancers.
Q : Is there anything that got to your heart lately?
M : On the final day of my tour, fans raised the boards of four-leafed clovers as a surprise. I was moved to tears.
