Actor of the Day: Ueda Keisuke


The first in our new series, Actor of the Day, which we’re hoping to release every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Today’s post is about the adorable Ueda Keisuke, or Uechan. Let’s all cheer for him!

Nickname: Uechan

Twitter: Uechan_0905

Blog: Keisuke-Ueda

Born September 5, 1989, currently 26 years old. Uechan is from Osaka, which goes a long way towards showing why he has such an easy smile and friendly personality. He was “discovered” through a great deal of talent and hard work in 2006, when he was a finalist in the 19th Junon Super Boy competition.

Anime on Stage / 2.5d Roles: Manmi Sangaku in Yowamushi Pedal Stage, Fallos in Persona 3 Stage, Yata Misaki in K: The Stage, Ishida Mitsunari in Sengoku Basara, Abe Masahiro in Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Saien.

Non-Anime Stage Roles: Many–notably, he has played Juliet in Romeo X Juliet—perhaps not surprising, given his angelic face!

Notable Features: Trademark teeth, characteristic fishy-face & peace sign in photographs, lovely large clear eyes!

Best Looks (an excuse for me to show him being adorable in lots of photographs, mostly taken from his Twitter):B-qRH1_UYAAyX3j CBBr4MiVAAAJTWC CCEKZJlVIAAHSW7 CCg2tSlVEAAkA06 CEJGbUXUMAAzQYC CG5RT92UYAAx9JK CGGu0b5VAAAzchE CJDaOkxUwAAu_hz CL4meRxUMAAumKm CM71AgLUYAAw0si CMcwOQqUsAANOZi CNOV8fYU8AA4IIS CODHz4QUEAERso4 CQeJZWXVAAAy5xTScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 4.41.03 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 4.41.32 PM tumblr_nv408ct0yE1ta7gouo1_540 tumblr_nv408ct0yE1ta7gouo4_1280 uechan1

Upcoming Roles: Manami Sangaku in “Yowamushi Pedal: Irregular,” Japan in “Hetalia the Musical: Singin’ in the World”

Hopefully we’ll get to hear him sing more soon in Hetalia. Apparently, he likes to sing at his handshake events, what a cutie! With his classic sense of humor and easy smile, we hope that Uechan will remain a fan favorite as he bursts onto the big time with Hetalia the Musical. Let’s all give him our support!
