Ashina’s tragic death has been confirmed by her management company and Tokyo police, Variety reports.

The actress was best known for the historical drama Silk, starring alongside Keira Knightley and US actor Michael Pitt in 2007.

It is not clear why Ashina would have taken her life and no note was left.

A statement from her representatives, HoriPro, called Ashina’s death “sad and unfortunate.”

It added: “The detailed situation is currently under investigation, but we would like to ask the media to consider the deep sorrow of their families and refrain from interviewing them,” it read.

“We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the kindness of Ashina during his lifetime and pray for the souls of all of you.”

Ashina recently starred in Japanese series Aibo: Tokyo Detective Duo, in which she had a recurring role since 2017, as well as the film Al Amok.

She was also an established voice artist and dubbed the lead character on US series Revenge, which ran for four season on ABC from 2011-2015.

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:
