History

Modeling

Takei wanted to become a model from a young age. Her parents told her she could do it once she reached her third year of middle school. In 2006, she competed in the 11th Zen-Nihon Kokumin-teki Bishojo Contest, winning both the model and multimedia awards. Later that year, she got her first official modeling job appearing in an article titled “How to make your eyebrows beautiful” in teen fashion magazine Seventeen.

In February 2007, she debuted as an exclusive Seventeen model and has appeared on several covers, both with other models and solo.

Acting

In 2008, she made her acting debut playing Maki Mizuta in Shun Nakahara’s The Cherry Orchard: Blossoming, which featured a cast made up almost entirely of talent from Oscar Promotion.

On September 1, 2010, Takei was picked from 5,500 celebrities, entertainers, and models to be the image character for the beauty-focused social network “be amie”.

In 2011, she won an audition of 800 people to get a key role in the Fuji TV drama “Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta”. Her first starring role came in TV Asahi’s “Asuko March!”
