Miki's Mum

as Suki in 'The Protectors'

As many of you know, Miki's mum is of Japanese heritage. What some of you may not know is that she, like her fab daughter, was no slouch and no stranger to fame either.

Says Miki: "My mum, Yasuko Nagazumi, was an actress and had a very small role in You Only Live Twice (me too - she was 3 months pregnant). She was also in Space 1999, and The ProtectorsThe New Avengers. And a film called Wombling Free which I was very excited about at the time because I was about 9 and got to meet Bernard Cribbins."

Here's an expanded version of her bio from Wikipedia...

Yasuko Nagazumi (永積靖子 Nagazumi Yasuko, b 1943) is a producer and manager in Hollywood responsible for print advertising campaigns for clients such as Armani, Donna Karan, Guess?, Pirelli, Vogue Magazine and working with photographers Peter Lindbergh, Herb Ritts, Helmut Newton and others.
