One Piece, Jamie Lee Curtis says she will push to play Kureha: The Creator’s Answer

The Oscar-winning actress returns to Instagram to reassure fans, eager to see her in the role of Dr. Kureha.

We can say that it is almost done between the TV series One Piece and the Oscar-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis. For weeks there has been a lot of talk about the possible involvement of the star of Halloween e True Lies in the live-action adaptation of the manga by Eiichiro Oda. Collaboration that now turns out to also have the approval of the team that is creating it for Netflix.

One Piece: Jamie Lee Curtis reiterates her interest

In recent days, Curtis has made a comeback Instagram to address the increasingly numerous fans of One Piece who are working to ensure that the actress is chosen for the role of the doctor Kureha in the next episodes of the TV series (less than two weeks ago One Piece was renewed for a second season). “The moment the strike against AMTPT greed is resolved with a fair contract, I will push along with the growing fervor of fans to become Dr. Kureha in One Piece” wrote Curtis, on strike with the other SAG-AFTRA actors.

The message, obviously, did not go unnoticed, not even by Matt Owensco-creator of the adaptation with Steven Maeda. Responding to Curtis’ post, the writer and executive producer wrote: “Mommy dear, that’s why we sent you that action figure! No need to push. Once we get our dues and get back to work, we’ll talk!”. In the last passage, Owens refers to the other strike that mobilized the screenwriters who are members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA), a union that reached a provisional agreement with the Studios in the last few hours, putting an end to the agitation after almost five months.

One Piece e Kureha

Netflix’s latest success, One Piece follows the dream of a young man named Monkey D. Luffy to become the new Pirate King. To achieve this, he embarks on a dangerous but wonderful journey in search of the legendary One Piece treasure, followed by his crewmates, all together the Straw Hat Pirates. In Oda’s manga and the equally popular anime that followed it, Kureha is a retired doctor who works in Drum. A highly capable doctor often called a “witch” due to her appearance and mannerisms, Kureha is the adoptive mother and mentor of the anthropomorphic reindeer Chopper, whom she encourages to join the Straw Hats.
