About Takayuki

Yamada Takayuki is one of the most popular and prolific actors in Japan. At the age of 15 he was discovered by his Talent Agency Stardust and subsequently made his debut in Psychometrer Eiji 2 (’99). Won recognition for his portrayal as the "cool" younger brother of the heroine in the hit NHK Asadora Drama Churasan

Perhaps, his biggest role to date would have to be starring as Matsumoto Sakutaro in the 2004 TBS drama Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu and stamped his name as a melodramatic actor.

In 2005, the mega-hit movie Densha Otoko made him a household name all over Asia. Recent projects include his latest drama Taiyo no Uta and the movie Tegami both with co-star Sawajiri Erika. --written by YT 22:35, 10 Mar 2007 (CST)

I discovered him in Densha Otoko; great actor! And really funny!

He's so good looking in Crows Zero, too bad I can't find any good pics.

I think that he is a really good actor though in Train Man He kind of looks like my dad when he was that age. So at times it's scary for me to look at him and think that he is cute.

Well I said kind of looks well he looks like my dad and my mom agrees with me though only when he has the glasses on!

Top left looks like good old DAD
