Miss Iizuka is very old-fashioned and biased, especially when it comes to Kyoko and director Ogata. She is proud of having portrayed Mio and feels territorial about the role. She respects veteran actors like Ren. She is also capable of admitting defeat and finds it in herself to praise Kyoko for her talent.
Hiroko was shown at the press meeting of Dark Moon where she also felt that Director Ogata was unreliable.
Hiroko seems really angry about Dark Moon filming scenes involving Mio starting without her. She thinks an unknown talent isn't capable of playing Mio properly. So she tries to make things difficult for Kyoko by making her answer some questions concerning Mio's personality. After hearing girl's answers she is sure that Kyoko can't act properly. She criticizes the Director Ogata for recruiting her.
She also declares that Ogata is lacking compared to his father. But she is taken aback when Ren himself vouches for Kyoko. She agrees to give Kyoko some time to figure out Mio's character. She is greatly agitated after hearing that Kyoko left the set while shooting but gets calmed down by Ren. After Kyoko comes Hiroko is asked to test Kyoko again. Initially she felt that the director was no good and determined to not let Kyoko portray Mio like that, especially not with that hair style. But the intensity of Kyoko's Mio overwhelms Hiroko.
In the end, the Director gains back his lost spirit and challenges Hiroko to perform with an impact surpassing the original, which she cannot decline. Later, when the cast is talking about Kyoko's Mio surpassing the original, Hiroko surprises them by agreeing, admitting that she's been won over by the new Mio and acknowledging Kyoko's talent.
Hiroko Iizuka is also genuinely surprised and shocked when Ren lost the ability to portray Katsuki.
Hiroko is shown to console the depressed Kyoko after the incident with Reino, without knowing the real incident and believing it to be an unknown stalker.
