    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 more the story or the action?

    The elements of the love story appealed to me more and once again the director Zhang Yimou also drew me to the project.

    Would you like to try out different films like say some big Hollywood movies?

    I would like to try out many kinds of films but I don’t think that there are a lot of parts for me in certain movies particularly in Hollywood.

    Do you think that Asian cinema is finally going global in a big way?

    Yes, well the Chinese mainland has opened up and so the western world is getting to see more and they are pumping more money than before into a lot of foreign films.

    Do you have more fans on an international scale than in your home country?

    Well let me put it this way, I don’t have a fan club so I couldn’t really say.

    Dashing blade

    Posted by: butterfly on Thursday, August 10, 2006 - 10:58 PM
    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 acclaimed period dramas (Raise the Red Lantern) to the recent martial-arts epic Hero .That film was a bouquet of elaborate aquamarine costumes, emerald-misted forests and golden-russet foliage. Daggers is another feast of blood, passion, lighter-than-air martial arts, silk brocade and leading players as eye-catching as the film’s vistas.

    Kaneshiro and the Hong Kong star Andy Lau play Tang Dynasty government officers, Jin and Leo, whose loyalties come into question when their pursuit of a beautiful rebel spy, Mei (the rising Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang, who now prefers this Westernised order of her name) turns into a love triangle.

    “I knew I could play the love story, but I was daunted by the fight scenes,” admits Kaneshiro, a polite but guarded presence. “A month before shooting in China and the Ukraine we began basic training in knives and swords without being told what the story was about. I found that strange and was afraid I was going to make mistakes, but Zhang Yimou is like a storyteller — he acts everything out so I knew exactly what he wanted.”

    21 Sex Symbols for the 21st Century

    Posted by: butterfly on Thursday, August 10, 2006 - 10:31 PM
    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 an international phenomenon.

    Like Tiger Woods, whose fresh talent and unique race-mix has caused quite a stir in the world of sports, Takeshi has had an equally enigmatic and concentric effect in the world of Asian entertainment. Oh, by the way, this man is so fine. Born to a Taiwanese mother and Japanese father, Takeshi is definitely a delicious, exotic mix. Add on some depth to Takeshi's handsome-boy portfolio with the ability to sing and act. Did I fail to mention that this former Prada poster boy speaks Taiwanese (like a native), Mandarin (fluently), Japanese (as if he were a traveling scholar), Cantonese (with a darling accent), and English (with ease)? This might offer some explanation why critics have heralded the Eastern import, if not for his acting ability, but his keen intellect. His intelligence extends beyond his mere acting and singing ability. He's smart about what projects he takes. Takeshi is grateful for the luxury of being "picky" with his projects. "Basically my main concern is whether or not the role is challenging. Making a Chinese movie or a Japanese movie is the same to me. I just want to make some good movies and hope that audiences appreciate them."

    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 star who, thanks to his protean good looks and versatile acting skills, has become the Asian film industry's Johnny Depp—a quirky, unpredictable leading man capable of seducing audiences no matter how dark or oddball the role. Kaneshiro is "mysterious," says To. "He doesn't belong to Hong Kong, Taiwan or anywhere." Indeed, in his eclectic 10-year career, Kaneshiro—who speaks five languages and has made films in four countries—has trained his chameleon-like talents on a remarkable array of characters. In Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai's Fallen Angels, he played a mute who rode the carcass of a pig like a cowboy. He made love to an HIV-infected teen in the blockbuster Japanese TV miniseries God Please Give Me More Time. In Returner, he played an orphaned assassin-for-hire, and he was a bowling-addicted stockbroker in another Japanese TV series, Golden Bowl. "I don't let myself follow in anyone else's footsteps," says Kaneshiro, 29. "Let other people do what has been done before. All I want is to do something special."
