Japan actress Erika Sawajiri arrested for MDMA possession
The police said they launched an investigation into the 33-year-old actress after receiving information she was “involved in illegal drugs.” They searched her home in the morning and found two white capsules in a plastic bag inside a jewelry box. Sawajiri admitted that they were hers. Police says they will continue probing the case.
Sawajiri has had success not only as an actress but as a singer. She starred in many movies and TV dramas.
She was scheduled to play the role of 16th-century Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga’s wife in public broadcaster NHK’s historical drama series.
NHK is having a headache over the scandal because the shooting has already started and has not been completed yet. “Re-editing the film is so hard. Also It’s impossible to replace actresses.” said one of the drama production staff.

Do you think Sawajiri should make a comeback or not?
In Japan, films are often banned from public viewing due to scandals by actors and actresses. Do you agree to the idea?
