Hello. I just started watching Maniac on Netflix. It's the show with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill about the human mind and stuff. And it's good, you should watch it! (#NOTANAD.) But the true gem of the show is Sonoya Mizuno who plays Dr. Azumi Fujita.
She's like a nerdier, more emo, science-y Mia Wallace (from Pulp Fiction).
AND I'M OBSESSED WITH HER.
First of all, you might recognize Sonoya because most recently she played Araminta in Crazy Rich Asians.
But also she was the creepy robot lady in Ex Machina!!!
The one who danced with Oscar Isaac.
But back to her in Maniac because it's the reason we are all here.
She plays a bonafide chainsmoking hottie who seems to have very little emotion and I am into it.
TBH I think smoking is gross, but for some reason when she lights that cig, my heart a-flutters!
The show takes place in some alternate weird version of our world so she can't even be classified as "hipster" or "alt" cause I don't think that exists there!! Instead she's just totally unique!!!
And her outerwear is fabulous.
Also...the glasses. THE GLASSES!!!!!
And the glasses with that hair!
Be still my fricken' heart!
Anyway, like I said, I've only seen like three episodes of the show so far so my knowledge on her character is limited. She could turn out to be the really bad guy for all I know!!!
But, I don't even care!!
I'm obsessed with her!!
Anytime she's in a scene I want to nominate her for an Emmy and then vote for her to win it and then present it to her myself.
Perhaps it's the lab coat. Or the turtlenecks.
WHATEVER IT IS I LOVE IT.
