Takeshi Kaneshiro - Rotten Tomatoes

Takeshi Kaneshiro

Highest Rated:   95% Fallen Angels (1995)
Lowest Rated:   36% Returner (2002)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Taipei, Taiwan
The 1/2 Chinese (of Taiwanese nationality) and 1/2 Japanese Takeshi Kaneshiro may have started out as a puerile teen idol in the Chinese entertainment scene, but he's since become a proper film star in his own right. Whether by his own design or not, the boyishness that marked his first steps into showbiz has evolved into a cool, somewhat reticent demeanor that has now become his trademark. there hasn't been an Asian actor quite as versatile as Kaneshiro, who is able to straddle the Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japanese film industries because of his proficiency in various languages. Still, one wonders if the reason why he's so sought after is because he is so elusive. No one really knows what he does outside of film commitments, and his reluctance towards being in the spotlight is legendary.
