The Wrap is exclusively reporting the news of actress Haruka Abe joining the cast of G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes.
While the news does not convey who she will portray, it is likely that we will see her as Junko Akita; based on the leaked info back in last December.
If true, we are yet to hear about Soft Master, Blind Master and Kenta; brother of Storm Shadow who were also leaked along with the info on Akita.
Haruka Abe is a Japanese-British actress. She appeared in BBC’s Ideal as Miko, and as Marti in Sleepydog’s science-fiction TV series Slingers directed by Steve Barron.

I was thinking she could be Jinx, but Junko Akita would make more sense.
Turtle Master says
she sounds great!
So then she will be Storm Shadow's love interest and the movie will be based off the Devil's Due Comics?
I don’t know much about her character but hopefully she will be awesome! The cast keeps getting rounded out every couple of days it seems!
The possibilities are:
Jinx? But too early to introduce the character perhaps?
Snake Eyes Twin Sister: Being a bigger name actor, she would have a more expanded role.
As some have said, a love interest might make sense, but could be plot device to break up SE and SS friendship would be a lazy trope. I hope its not that.
I personally have no idea who the character is, but it's not wrecking MY day. What I'm taking from it is that the delay between info drops is getting shorter, which makes it look more and more like the movie is actually going to be a thing. Welcome back, GiJoe, long time no see!
So I would imagine she is how they tie in the yakuza into this movie
