Born in Yokohama, Rina Hoshino spent her adolescent years in Japan until the age of 13 whereupon she relocated to Mercer Island, WA throughout her high school years. Upon graduation, Hoshino enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute LA as a full-time student.
She starred in the independent horror film, Tengu, which became an official selection for The Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival, the New Wave Film Festival, as well as the LA Thriller Film Festival. She was also a series regular bilingual reporter for Go West, Japanese TV documentary show sponsored by the Colorado Convention Bureau to travel across from Flagstaff, Arizona to Denver, Colorado and visit many landmarks along the way (Approximately 3,200 miles in 3 weeks). Go West is currently airing nationally and globally on the UTB Channel in the U.S and Japan.
Hoshino believes that acting provides her with the opportunity to connect with those who feel like they do not belong to any one culture. Through harnessing the exceptional power of the cinema experience, she hopes to bridge societies and social structures to help bring people from all across the globe just a little closer together.
Hoshino also reminds herself to be open to any aesthetic grounds so she can be ready to take risks in every window of great opportunity that might illuminate her life.
Hoshino's film credits include Tengu (LA Int. Underground, LA New Wave, LA Thriller Film Festival), Angelic Magica (Anime Expo), Pretty Wings (Movies by Kids Film Festival) to give a few.
