Actor / Producer Kyosuke Mukai is making a name for himself in the horror genre and leaving a trail of blood behind him. We shine the spotlight on the works of Kyosuke Mukai and see where he’s been and where he’s going.
“I am active in both Japan and the United States. I am good at Samurai’s movements and actions, and I hope I can promote it in the United States by making use of it. I don’t speak English as fluently as an American actor, but instead I cherish acting with the spirit of a samurai. Rather than relying solely on lines, I would like to act while valuing the characters and their feelings. Of course, I am also practicing English. Originally, he appeared in Japanese TV series and one-shot dramas, but he had ambitions to one day challenge himself to American films. Then there is the appearance in “Attack of the Unknown ”in 2020 It was my first experience and I was nervous, but it was a valuable experience that taught me the wonders of acting in English in an American movie.
I will continue to believe that there are no borders when it comes to making good movies and acting. I am preparing and training so that I can perform in any country.
In the future, both in the United States and Japan, I would like to put my heart and soul into acting serious, action . valuing the movements and emotions of the characters.
Every time I appear in an American movie, I grow. And thank you to everyone involved.” – Kyosuke Mukai
