Horikita Maki announces marriage to actor Yamamoto Koji

Horikita Maki (26) and actor Yamamoto Koji (38) are married. They submitted their marriage registration on August 22 at a ward office in Tokyo via a proxy. She is not expecting and will continue working. They first got acquainted 6 years ago while filming for Fuji TV drama 'Atashinchi no Danshi' but only grew closer when they played lovers in stage play 'Wuthering Heights' this year.

According to some sources, they began dating in June and started living together in early August. Below is a statement by Horikita Maki through her agency, Sweet Power, to the media.

This is a personal matter but I, Horikita Maki, married Yamamoto Koji-san on August 22.

Please forgive me for announcing this in written form in such a sudden manner.

I made acquaintance with Yamamoto-san 6 years ago through work but it was when we worked together in the stage play 'Wuthering Heights' that I was charmed by his character. We wish to live our lives together from now on and the next step is marriage.

We are still inexperienced but from now on, as always, we seek your guidance and encouragement.

I didn't really have any intention to marry but being with him, 'marriage' came up naturally and I believe that it will bring me happiness. From now on, so as not to betray your expectations, I will continue to face work earnestly.
