Directing her energies on studying acting, she racked up an artillery of training from the film industry's most respected coaches.In January 2007, Louise landed her first major ad campaign, for Nepia-Tokyo which has propelled her to nationwide recognition in Japan.Immediately following this, Louise filmed her first lead role in an independent comedy, Banking on Love, which will be released in Fall 2008.
