Interview with Tiffany Grant
How did you get the role for Daiko Hayami?
I had already been working with the director, Matt Greenfield, and AD Vision for about four years, so I was cast based on my previous work.
What is it like to be Daiko Hayami?
I have long been a fan of the Cutey Honey series, so I was pleased to get to play the other strong female role in the show. As for what it was "like" - I guess I don't really have a good answer for that. It is a wonderful series and I was happy to be a part of it.
What was your favorite scene from the entire series?
My personal favorite scene was late in the series when Honey is locked in a room with the bad guys who are about to take advantage of her. After getting saved in the nick of time, she makes a remark to the camera about how it was almost an X rated show. The other scene I liked most that involved Miss Daiko was the one where she catches the guys all ogling Honey in the shower. Daiko proceeds to REALLY kick their butts! >=)
What do you think of your character, Daiko?
I think she is a great, strong woman who is very protective of her family & friends. I hope I did her justice.
When you were a chibi-Tiff, what did you want to be when you grow up?
Cute! I am still kind of a Chibi-Tif actually - only five feet tall. ;-) But seriously, I only ever really wanted to be an actor. In fact, I feel more like I always was an actor instead of "becoming" one. Besides that, I also considered - although only briefly - a career in teaching. I would also like to focus more on writing.
Have you been cast in any other anime?

Thank you for your time Tiffany.
Thanks, for a great Interview, Abraham!!
