From various interviews I read and also from WUS, it's so obvious that Captain is genuinely happy to be able to work with such a great team like A LIFE team, be it staff or cast. Not only that they're on very good terms with each other privately, but they also share the same passion & attitude towards work. I'm so grateful for Producer Ueda for making this drama happen no matter how much hardship he faced behind the scenes. <3 It's such a wonderful encounter for Captain during one of the toughest times in his career.
1) Some cute snippets about A LIFE team from WUS 2017.02.03
- As there're 2 Kimura at A LIFE filming site, fan asked how the crew calls both of them.
Kimura Fumino -> Fumi-chan, Yuki-chan
During the photo shoot for the drama poster, when the art director said "Sorry! Kimura-san, please move to the left a little bit..", turns out both Captain and Fumino-chan moved accordingly. So, after that both of them were called by their full name. xD
