2541 : Setsuko Hara

More about Setsuko Hara here

From Pico Iyer's Autumn Light

Setsuko Hara, who takes on the name of Noriko in one Ozu film after another, smiles more brilliantly the more she's pushing down her losses; in life, as soon as Ozu died, the actresses retreated to a house in Kamakura, where the never married director was buried (under a black stone, that says, simply, "nothingness"), and, unmarried herself, seldom showed her face in public again. It wasn't hard for the press to cast her as the true-life daughter she plated in Late Spring, tending to her honorary father's memory till she becomes a nun like figure in her nineties, coming out only to lat flowers on his grave.
