Biography

Kishii was born in 1992 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. She made her acting debut in 2009 as elementary school student Nana Sakurai in the drama Princess Sara (小公女セイラ, Shōkōjo Seira). After a series of minor film and TV appearances, in 2015 she played the role of Taeko Hakozaki, a girl whose friend falls in love with Taeko's father, in the Kenji Yamauchi film I Love My Friend's Father (友だちのパパが好き, Tomodachi no papa ga suki), as well as the supporting role of Kanako in the TBS drama 99.9 Criminal Lawyer (99.9-刑事専門弁護士-, 99.9: Keiji senmon bengoshi).The next year Kishii landed several more TV and film roles. Her film roles included Yumika, an ex-girlfriend of a photographer whose rock star subject becomes attracted to her, in Grab the Sun (太陽を掴め, Taiyou wo tsukame), and Chieko Matsuda, a teenager whose classmate seeks to impress her by getting a driver's license, in a film adaptation of the manga Moriyamachu Driving School (森山中教習所, Moriyama kyōshūjo). She also appeared in film adaptations of the debut Shigeaki Kato novel Pink and Gray and the Mariko Koike novel Double Life (二重生活, Nijyū seikatsu), and played the role of Taka, Nobushige's third wife, in the 55th NHK taiga drama Sanada Maru.Kishii's first lead film role came in the 2017 Yukihiro Morigaki film Goodbye, Grandpa! (おじいちゃん、死んじゃったって, Ojiichan, shinjyattatte) as Yoshiko Haruno, the granddaughter of a recently deceased family patriarch. Sarah Ward of Screen Daily described her performance as "especially impressive, her wise-beyond-her-years demeanour helping to flesh out a protagonist largely tasked with observing everyone around her". Kishii's performance in Goodbye, Grandpa! won her a Best Newcomer Award at the 39th Yokohama Film Festival. That same year she played Sumire Michibata in the TBS television series Rental Lovers (レンタルの恋, Rentaru no koi) and Miyuki Asakawa in the Kiyoshi Kurosawa science fiction drama Foreboding on Wowow. In 2018 Kishii took on roles in two NHK dramas: the drama School Lawyer (やけに弁の立つ弁護士が学校でほえる, Yakeni ben no tatsu bengoshi ga gakkō de hoeru), as middle school teacher Shiori Mochozuki; and Manpuku, the 99th NHK asadora, as Taka Kōda. She also appeared in the Fuji TV adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo.
