"Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa specializes in playing the evilest of vile villains, most of whom despite their exceptional martial arts skills are killed in spectacular manners."
-- from moveepeepz.hollywhat.xerg

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, a U.S. Army brat, was born in Tokyo and lived in various cities while growing up. His father was in the army, stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C., Ft. Polk, La. and Ft. Hood, Texas. His mother was an actress from Tokyo. The family finally settled in Southern California, where Tagawa began acting in high school. He was an exchange student in Japan while studying at the University of Southern California.

Tagawa moved back to Japan after college, but was disappointed when he felt like an outsider, not having lived there in so long and gone though the same experiences. He returned to America, and at the age of 36, Tagawa began his acting career. He got his first big break as an actor when he was cast in Bernardo Bertolucci's feature film "The Last Emperor." More gigs would come.

Executive Producer
Camp Ninja, Brimstone Entertainment, 2000

He has recently been involved off-screen in addressing student groups (at SFSU and Stanford). He has also been coaching the martial artist portraying Shang Tsung in the Mortal Kombat Live Flawless Fatality Tour, and in his free time, developing his new form of Martial Arts, called "Chuu Shin." (For more on this, check out his interview in Inside Karate.)

Tagawa's new focus for the movies and television is to grab up the 'good-guy' spots and try to rid himself of the evil 'bad-guy' image that he has. Let's hope he is successful and that it works! As much as you have to love the bad guy in a film, Cary is certaintly quite different in real life. The 'good-guy' characters that he has played have been very interesting, and I hope he can get to play many more.

As for Mr. Tagawa personally, everyone I've chatted with who knows him or has met him has had wonderful things to say about him. I'm always amazed at what an energetic, uplifting person he is, and his intelligence and creativity are inspiring. And yet, even with all of this energy, Cary always seems so calm and collected!

Subo went looking for a Pacific Asian to hook up with for the celebration, and came up with [not making this up] "Dr Sam @asianorgasmxxx." silent

Subo--at her advanced age--doesn't believe in wasting time, so she met up him in her nightie.

Actual quote: "the FINEST chap I've ever met! This is my new boyfriend ladies!" What a Face

The pinhed is inspired to hook up with a Pacific Asian also, but Sam is already taken.

The hall in Santa Barbara was too small anyway. Razz
Costa Mesa was much more suitable.

According to George Takei, William Shatner keeps their “feud” alive for his own purposes.

That purpose is getting extra publicity.

“It’s all coming from Bill,” said Takei, when asked about the years-long feud. “Whenever he needs a little publicity for a project, he pumps up the so-called controversy between us.”

According to Takei, Shatner used Takei’s wedding invitation (or alleged lack thereof) to attack Takei, so that Shatner could promote a new show. “Two months after my wedding, he went on YouTube and ranted and raved about our not sending him an invitation,” said Takei. “We had. If he had an issue, he could have easily just phoned us before the wedding, simple as that. But he didn’t. And the reason he raised that fuss two months later is because he was premiering his new talk show, Raw Nerve.”

Shatner doesn’t play well with others, said Takei, dating all the way back to their days together on the original series. “It’s difficult working with someone who is not a team player,” said Takei. “The rest of the cast all understand what makes a scene work — it’s everybody contributing to it. But Bill is a wonderful actor, and he knows it, and he likes to have the camera on him all the time.”
