We’re still waiting for an update on the upcoming live-action adaptation of One Piece. We haven’t had an official casting in some time but luckily enjoyed a recent update by the manga’s creator Eiichiro Oda himself teasing that the project is going to be “amazing” or “great” depending on the translation. Still, the CVs of various actors have given us a few teases of actors that were cast in various smaller roles from the production.
The same has just happened with actress Genna Galloway, who revealed in her CV that she’s playing the role of Belle-Mere as first shared by @OP_Netflix_Fan on Twitter. For those that might not know the character, she’s the adoptive mother of Nami (Emily Rudd) and Nojiko (Chioma Umeala). She plays an integral part in the development of Nami’s character and the famous Arlong Park Arc.
That is not all though, as her Spotlight CV also includes a rather curious detail. Josef Kubota Wladyka directed the episode(s) she was a part of. The Tokyo Vice director was rumored to have a role in the production all the way back in June. We still don’t know how many episodes each director tackled but it definitely has been quite interesting getting these tidbits.
We might have to wait until 2023 to get an official update on the production but these tidbits have been great to hold us over until we finally got an update. Conway is no stranger to working with Netflix, as she was involved with this year’s Resident Evil. So, it’ll be interesting to see what she brings to her next project.
