Rio Uchida Discusses JoJo Stands and Auditions at NY Maxman Stage Greeting

Rio Uchida appeared with the cast of the action-comedy movie NY Maxman on February 17, 2018. The movie stars Yu Inaba, who previous appeared with Uchida in Kamen Rider Drive and several past Kamen Rider and Super Sentai actors and actresses. The cast discussed the movie, but also other tokusatsu topics.



Uchida recalled her audition for the 2015 series Kamen Rider Drive. She had to perform a skit that would impress the audition staff. Uchida decided to use some of her teachings from Law School when she attended university. She explained how she shyly introduced herself, but fuse the Stand pose from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and the Japanese Constitution, she confessed.

Unfortunately, she completely forgot the Japanese Constitution at the performance. Feeling impatient, she stated “I forgot!” The audition staff seemed to believe that was part of the skit, and through more auditions, Uchida earned her place on the Kamen Rider Drive cast as Kiriko Shijima. Fans at the venue were amused at her story.
