Miss Universe Wants to Be Miss Hiro Nakamura

at . Comments

Less than a month after being crowned Miss Universe, Riyo Mori is hoping to land another job â?? a role on the NBC sci-fi series Heroes.

Riyo Mori

â??As soon as I won Miss Universe I had this big chance,â?? Mori said in an interview last week. â??Iâ??ve never acted before. I went to the casting audition and read a script in English and Japanese, and they said it was really good. So I hope I can be in the show.â??

Mori said the role of Yaeko, which she read for, would be a love interest for one of the main characters on Heroes. Itâ??s safe to assume that would be Hiro Nakamura.

The 20-year-old dancer won the 2007 Miss Universe contest in Mexico City last month. The only other time Japan has won the pageant was in 1959, when Akiko Kojima became the first Miss Universe from Asia.

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
