Born in Tokyo, Haruka spent her childhood split between New York, London and Tokyo, moving between the three cities with her family. Aged 8 she decided to try acting and at age 9 she played Bilbo Baggins in her school play adaptation of The Hobbit, an experience that confirmed to her that acting was the path she wanted to follow.

Her family moved back to Tokyo when she was 11 years old, and while in middle and high school, she enrolled in a children's drama school called Gekidan Himawari in Ebisu, Shibuya, Tokyo.

She was later accepted into Aoyama University, however at aged 18 she decided instead to return to London to pursue her acting career, attending Rose Brudord drama school where she would graduate with a 1st class Bachelor of Arts degree.

Personal Quotes (3)

I find the process of auditioning and getting/not getting the role is the hardest part of my job. When you're given a script to audition for, you almost fall in love with the characters. And it's heart breaking when they chose someone else. This "falling-in-love-only-to-have-your-heart-broken" process occurs on a weekly basis so it can really get to you. But when they do pick you, you know you're going to have the time of your life.
I've always been really fascinated by both the villains and the antagonists. I would love to play a really "bad" or "evil" character with an interesting back-story. I'm also a big bookworm and my love for acting is like an extension of my love for books, so naturally there are several characters I would love to play in an adaptation.
You really need to love acting in order to survive it. Everyone in TV and film works extremely hard. The hours on set can be really long. Actors face rejection on a daily basis. It's impossible to plan anything because your life is so unpredictable. If you're in it for wealth or fame or adoration, you are on the wrong path. But if these thoughts don't faze you and you're ready to make the commitment, my advice is to never give up and just keep swimming, because there will be a lot of fun at the end of the tunnel.
