Sayaka Kanda, a Japanese actress who voiced Anna in country’s version of popular animation movie, ‘Frozen,’ has died after falling from her hotel room.
Kanda, 35, was found on the ground around the outside area of the 14th floor of a 22-storey hotel where she was staying at about 9.40pm on Saturday, December 18.
She was then rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead by doctors.
Takako Matsu, who worked with Kanda and voiced Elsa in the Japanese version of ‘Frozen’, said she was left “speechless” at the death of her colleague.
She added that “the time we spent together is an irreplaceable treasure for me.”
Ms Kanda’s agency said: “We are very sorry to give such a report to all the fans who supported us and all the people who took care of us.
“We are still unable to accept her passing and are trying to cope with it.”
However, Police investigators have continued to look into the incident to see whether Ms Kanda took her own life or her death was the result of a tragic accident.
The deceased who Kanda voiced Princess Anna in the Japanese version of the hit 2013 animated Walt Disney film ‘Frozen’, was the daughter of Japanese actor Masaki Kanda, 70, and singer Seiko Matsuda, 59.
