What really attracted you to the film and is there anyone in particular who inspires you in the world of martial arts movies?

The director, Zhang Yimou was the main attraction for me and as for all that martial arts stuff I hardly know anything it is all mainly down to the choreographer.

How much training did you have to do?

I practised basic swordplay for about one month and then the action director worked out the scenes mainly whilst we were on set. I always looked after my face.

What appealed to you....

IT ONLY takes Takeshi Kaneshiro to stand with his coat just off his shoulders for one of his entourage to leap up to remove it. It’s superstar behaviour, but then the 31-year-old actor has parlayed his brooding good looks into becoming a pin-up, Prada model, pop idol and film star whose career straddles action and art house.

He’s already been dubbed the Asian Johnny Depp. Now the Taiwanese-Japanese actor’s profile in the West is about to be raised with Zhang Yimou’s House of Flying Daggers, which continues the director’s shift from neorealist rural portraits (Red Sorghum) and....

Color me a can of Delmonte crushed pineapple in heavy syrup and serve me up with a chilled fork! Oh, c'mon. Who wouldn't want to be devoured by "Badge No. 223"? You know, the painfully attractive, lovesick cop with a peculiar fancy for canned pineapples dated May 1st? For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about and still haven't seen Takeshi Kaneshiro's heart-warming performance in Wong-Kar Wai's 1994 cult classic "Chungking Express," you don't deserve to be enlightened. Perhaps one of "the" finest profiles to ever grace the silver screen, 26-year-old Takeshi Kaneshiro is....

Pan-Asian Sensation

Posted by: butterfly on Thursday/August 10/2006 - 10:21 PM
Takeshi Kaneshiro became a superstar playing oddball characters. Is this typecasting?

When Johnny To signed on to direct the wistfully romantic Turn Left Turn Right, the Hong Kong filmmaker knew exactly whom he wanted to play the male lead. In the illustrated novel by Jimmy Liao, from which the new movie is adapted, the protagonist is so estranged from society that he's depicted floating above the city, like a melancholy blimp. When you want someone who practically oozes that kind of ethereal alienation, whom are you going to call?

Answer: Takeshi Kaneshiro, the half-Taiwanese, half-Japanese movie....
