Shidô Nakamura

Shidō Nakamura is a Japanese film and Kabuki actor. The art of Kabuki acting is traditionally associated with elder generations, an art form which most youngsters in Japan would rather be seen anywhere else than inside a Kabuki theatre. Nakamura, on the other hand, is one of the few young Kabuki actors that have been able to tempt young Japanese back to the traditional theatre.Nakamura made his kabuki debut at the age of nine. 21 years later and despite being a relative latecomer to the silver screen, the 30-year-old Kabuki actor was in his first film 2002 with Ping Pong, in which he portrayed a skin-headed, demonically intense table-tennis champion named Dragon. His film debut won Nakamura a Best Newcomer award at the 2003 Japanese Academy Awards. Since then, Nakamura has starred in a string of high-profile movies as well as TV dramas. rNakamura came to international attention in 2004 after starring in the highly successful romance movie Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu (Be With You) with Yuko Takeuchi, when the two co-starred as a couple separated by death. The two co-stars married for a short time after filming was complete, from May 10, 2005 until they divorced on November 1, 2006.Nakamura plays a Japanese sword expert who is Jet Li's final opponent in the Hong Kong/China martial arts movie Fearless starring international Kung Fu star Jet Li, set in 1910s Imperial China.
