Japanese ‘Frozen’ actress dies after fall from hotel balcony

When the movie “Frozen” is played in Japan, the actress who voices Anna is played by Sayaka Kanda.

This past Saturday Sayaka was found unresponsive outside of a hotel in the northern Japanese city of Sapporo.  She was rushed to the hospital, but could not be saved.  She was 35 years old.

Representatives for Sayaka say she was staying in a room on the 14th floor of the hotel and appears to have fallen from the balcony.

Police are investigating the case as probable suicide but have not yet ruled out foul play, the outlet added.

The actress had been at a rehearsal for a performance of the musical “My Fair Lady” as recently as Friday but missed a Saturday rehearsal, her producers noted.

“I would like to report to everyone who has supported Sayaka Kanda so far. Kanda Sayaka (35 years old) died suddenly at 9:40 pm on December 18, 2021,” Kamaichi Mitsuhisa, the CEO of Kanda’s agency Robe Co., wrote in a statement according to Yahoo. “We are very sorry to give such a report to all the fans who supported us and all the people who took care of us.”
