Haruo Nakajima actor Godzilla

Yesterday, the unfortunate news that Haruo Nakajima had passed away at age 88 was reported. He was the first man to play the role of one of the most iconic characters in film, Godzilla. He wore the Godzilla suit for 12 films in a row in films such asĀ Godzilla vs. King Kong, Godzilla vs. Mothra, Destroy All Monsters, and ended with Godzilla vs. Gigan. In addition to those he was also the suit actor for Rodan, Varan the Unbelievable, and for the original Ultraman series. He would also appear outside of monster suits in roles such JDSF personnel in a few kaiju films, and even played a bandit in Seven Samurai.

About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.
