Shu Nakajima (1948-2017)


He worked for the support of his country Japan, and Warner Bros. which is very good on him. He was with Keanu Reeves in “47 Ronin” and Kiefer Sutherland in “To End All Wars”. 

Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1948, he had a dream to follow. And that was to become a film star. So therefore, he did. As an actor and director, he did his best in films, TV shows and stage performances mostly in Japan. 

Around the 1990’s and early 2000, that was when he worked for the support of Warner Bros. However in 2003, he was married to a Japanese voice actress named Machiko Washi. And not only she worked on some anime TV shows and anime movies in Japan, before going to North America, she worked for the support of Studio Ghibli. 

His wife was the elementary school teacher in “My Neighbor Totoro”, and the wife of Pazu’s boss in “Castle in the Sky”. Who says that anime that is the best as always? 

They were married for 14 years until his death in 2017. He was 69 years of age. And I’m glad that he and his wife worked for the support of Studio Ghibli and a bit on Warner Bros. 

R.I.P. Shu Nakajima. I thank you and your wife for everything.
