Rosa Kato (加藤ローサ Kato Rosa ?, born June 22, 1985) is a Japanese actress and full-time commercial model, born in Naples, Italy, and raised in Kagoshima, Japan.




Early life

Kato was born Naples, Italy on June 22, 1985 to a family of Italian (paternal line) and Japanese (maternal line) origin. At the age of five years, she moved to Kagoshima, Japan, where spent her entire education. As a result, according to her own statement,[1] she doesn't speak Italian very well, even though she knew how to speak it until she was five. Instead, she was a regular guest student of the Japanese education TV program, NHK Italian Conversation. She had graduated from Kagoshima West High School in Kagoshima, Japan.


She had done an ice cream commercial for Glico a lipstick commercial for Maxfactor and a commercial for Toyota. However, the TV advertisement that brought her to fame was her commercial for the bridal magazine, Zekushi (Zexy).

Later in 2005, she started to appear in Japanese television dramas in supporting roles. A year later, she won the Best Newcomer Award for her performance in the Japanese television drama, Dance Drill from the most prominent entertainment magazine in Japan, Television.

She was finally able to star in her own drama two years after her television breakthrough on 2005. Her drama, Jotei, where she starred alongside Hana Yori Dango star, Matsuda Shota was unfortunately a minor success in Tokyo yet a satisfactory hit in the Kansai region.[2]

She also appeared in different movies, among them: Tokyo Tower, イツカ波ノ彼方ニ, TAKI183, シムソンズ, Catch A Wave, etc.

She is also a regular on NHK's Italian language study program.
