Recently completed "Cucumber" by Russell T Davies and "Cyberbully" by Ben Chanan on Channel 4. Next appearing in Harajuku Girls at the Finborough Theatre playing the lead role. Guardian on Haruka’s performance in Cyberbully: "...The standout performance, though, comes from Haruka Abe as Jennifer Li...between the two main actors and the directorial torque applied, it’s a desperately sad, fantastically menacing, wholly destabilising hour."
