Jamie Lee Curtis is a Hollywood veteran that has been in the field for more than four decades. She is labeled as the scream queen for her work being predominantly of the horror and slasher genres. However, her filmography is quite expansive as she has left no stone unturned when it comes to entertainment industry, and now she is all set to explore the anime world.

Anime is a form of entertainment that does not have boundaries. It welcomes every single person who might be interested with open arms so although it is surprising that the 64-year-old actress watches anime, it is not entirely shocking. However, in addition to watching, Lee Curtis also wishes to play a character in her favorite anime series One Piece.

Since the Freaky Friday actress might be a little too old to play Nick Robin, she has shown her interest in portraying Dr. Kureha who is the adoptive mother and mentor of Tony Tony Chopper in the series. Even her daughter Ruby Guest said that Curtis is very interested in the role. The Knives Out actress said:

“She wears those really low bell bottoms. She’s looking a little nasty but she has long, kind of stringy gray hair, and my Ruby said that that would be what I would play.”

One Piece doesn’t seem to be a passing interest for Jamie Lee Curtis which is uncommon in the present world where as soon as the current trend becomes overhyped, a new one is started with everyone following as if it is a cult. The actress must be actually invested in the series to have discovered the character of Nick Robin which is properly introduced way too later for someone to catch on easily.
