|This article is about a/an actress in Mahou Sentai Magiranger.|
According to this interview, Ayumi originally tried out for the role of MagiRed, and Hiroya Matsumoto, who played Tsubasa, supported her in this. Had she been chosen to play the Red Ranger, she would have became the first female Red in Super Sentai. She also stated she was a big fan of Sentai growing up, Hikari Sentai Maskman in particular and watched Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger right after winning the role of Houka.
- Ayumi Beppu had announced that she would not appear in a children's show ever again. However, Ayumi reprised her role as Houka to appear in Gokaiger.
- There are two possible reasons for her appearance despite her statement: It was an extremely short cameo. She possibly meant she wouldn't take a new leading role for a children's show. Also, her statement doesn't mention regretting Magiranger at all, making it possible she made an exception because she enjoyed her role as Houka.
