Netflix's One Piece seems to be wrapping up its time with its central cast members, and the actress portraying Nami in the new live-action series is celebrating her time with the project in a special new post shared with fans! Although it was first announced to be in the works before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Netflix's One Piece series didn't really kick its production into high gear until much earlier this year. It took time to bring the various elements of the new adaptation together, and thus fans have been curious to see how it all turns out.
The actress behind Netflix's new Nami, Emily Rudd, seems to have ended her time with the production and thus she celebrated with a special new message. Rudd's message to fans about the series reads as such, "[W]hat a wild & wonderful almost year this has been[.] [Y]'all [I] am so full of gratitude and big juicy ghibli-style tears [.] [T]hank [you] @onepiecenetflix & everyone involved for making this one of the most special experiences of my life and career, and thank [you] to y'all for trusting and supporting me in bringing our girl to life [.] [T]his dream role was a much bigger dream than [I] could've ever imagined. [T]hank [you] [T]hank [you] [T]hank [you] love [you]." You can find the full post below:
