Born in Tokyo, Ayumi Ito, always had a love for movies. When she was just 13 she made her debut as an actress after attracting the attention of director Nobuhiko Obayashi (FILM TITLE) . Her big break came shortly after when she appeared in SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLY directed by Shunji Iwai in 1991. Her performance earned her the 20th Japan Academy Award for Best Newcomer and Best Actress in a Supporting Role as well as the 11th Takasaki Film Festival Award for Best Newcomer Actress.

She later went to New York to learn English and continued to build her career as an actress. Many notable performances include ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU-CHOU (2001) directed by Shunji Iwai, SAYONARA KURO (2003) directed by Joji Matsuoka, OWL (2004) directed by Kaneto Shindo, A DAY ON THE PLANET (2004) directed by Isao Yukisada, BE SURE TO SHARE (2009) directed by Sion Sono, BANDAGE (2010) directed by Takeshi Kobayashi, and GANTZ (2011) directed by Shinsuke Sato. She also appeared in foreign movies such as THE GO MASTER (2006) directed by Tian Zhuangzhuang and TOKYO! : INTERIOR DESIGN (2008) directed by Michel Gondry.

Ayumi’ s talent also bloomed off-screen. Responding to the call of CHARA, a famous female musician in Japan, she has been involved in a band called Mean Machine as vocalist. The band has released hit songs including “Su-ha.” She provides the voice of a character in the animated movie Final Fantasy VII ADVENT CHILDREN (2005), which sold over 5 million DVDs worldwide With fine features and extremely expressive face, Ayumi has a positive determination, a sense of humility, and an inner fortitude. Leading film directors in Japan have highly appreciated her acting talent as well as her strong yet understated presence.

In her private time, Ayumi enjoys horseback riding, ballet , swimming, skin diving, and surfing to get inspired for her next performance.

Ayumi says it was invaluable to have discovered much about herself unknown to her previously through her career. Her next goal is to work with directors of different cultures and traditions in foreign lands. She is about to set off on a new journey
