A play has been at the top of the anime industry for years now, and the manga has millions of fans worldwide. Of course, these fans come from all walks of life and many of them can consider themselves celebrities. Jamie Lee Curtis just happens to be one of them, and the award-winning actress admits she’s desperate to take part in Netflix‘s live-action anime adaptation.
The actress shared her interest in A play this week when the Oscars started in California. This is where Lee walked the red carpet and told TikTok during an interview that she would be open to joining the live-action series if she was looking to fill the role of Kureha anytime soon.
“You know, there’s this shrunken old lady…maybe I can be Kureha,” she shared. “My [daughter] Ruby said that would be what I would play.”
This isn’t the first time Lee or his family have taken an interest in A play. Last year, actress Ruby Guest’s daughter appeared on a podcast where she offered her mother to play Kureha.

“My mom loves Kureha. I would be 100% for it and honestly, since Netflix is doing the live-action adaptation, I would highly recommend that she pull some strings to see if she can,” Guest said. “I know my mom is 100% for it.”
During Lee’s interview, she confessed her love for Tony Tony Chopper, and the Halloween icon also said she would be willing to play Nico Robin although their ages don’t match. At this point, no casting has been announced for the Straw Hat, but Netflix should cast Robin if A play get additional seasons. And if so, well – it looks like we know who Netflix should be calling to play Kureha.
