A Closer Look At The Talented Japanese Actor

With a calm and reserved demeanour and a genuine dedication to the art of acting, find well-respected and renowned Japanese actor Ryo Kase featured in films alongside Clint Eastwood, Gus van Sant and Takeshi Kitano. Born in Yokohama and raised in the States, his background provides him with an alternative perspective that draws him to Japanese and Korean arthouse films by Hong Sang-soo, to American-produced commercial blockbusters.

Ryo’s integrity is as strong as his talent, and his passion for film admirably irrepressible.

Ryo Kase was featured in Ala Champ Issue 8 (2014)
