Eita Wins Best Supporting Actor Award


At the recently held 34th Hochi Film Awards, actor Eita became the Best Supporting Actor. At 26 years old he has become the youngest actor to win in the category; the previous record holder was Asano Tadanobu, who won the award in 2000 when he was 27. Eita expressed his joy. "I'm really honored. I'm delighted I've become the youngest actor."

For this year Eita has appeared in a slew of movies. The 4 films he participated in are 'ガマの油 / Gama no Abura (Toad's Oil)', 'ディア・ドクター / Dear Doctor', '余命1ヶ月の花嫁 / Yomei 1-kagetsu no Hanayome [lit. 'Bride with One Month to Live']' and 'なくもんか / Nakumonka [lit. 'No Way I'll Cry']'. From serious to comedy films, Eita excelled in a wide variety of genres.

Eita quietly commented "Although I've become the Best Supporting Actor, I really don't think I was able to 'support' the lead actors. Instead I feel like I was the one who was 'supported'..." He was then asked how he succeeded in effectively portraying different kinds of roles. "When developing characters, I basically have the director and other people do the building for me. Sometimes it's better to stay put and just follow directions. Also, by repeatedly going over the script you make new discoveries about what the playwright was trying to express."

Aww congrats to him! He's a great actor. I haven't seen the films in question but his performances in Voice and Last Friends esp were super good.

And I'll always have a soft spot for Mine. <3

I really don't think I was able to 'support' the lead actors. Instead I feel like I was the one who was 'supported'...

You are being too humble. :(
