Actor of the Day: Harashima Motohisa
Today’s actor is Harashima Motohisa (原嶋元久). In 2006, young Harashima Motohisa acted in the relatively unknown film Boku wa Kono Oka de, Kimi wo Aishitai. Like most young actors with an active school life, Harashima went back to normal life for the next five years. Then, he made himself known by bagging the role of Tenimyu’s Kirihara Akaya for the second season. Not only was this his first major role in acting, but it was also his first major performance on stage. In the years since then, he’s gone on to star in multiple stage productions, anime stage adaptions included. With how talented he’s shown himself to be at learning on the go, it’s no wonder his schedule is rather full with over four major stage productions and the occasional film to prepare for in a year.
