Matsuda Ryuhei

Ryuhei Matsuda (松田 龍平, Matsuda Ryūhei) is a Japanese film and television actor. He is best known for his roles in Japanese films such as Taboo and Nana.
Matsuda was born on 9 May 1983 in Tokyo to Yusaku Matsuda, a Japanese actor, and Miyuki Matsuda (née Kumagai), a Japanese actress. He has two siblings, one of whom is Japanese actor Shota Matsuda. Yusaku Matsuda was half-Korean, thus Shota and Ryuhei are a quarter Korean His father died from bladder cancer in 1989, when Ryuhei was six years old. He attended Horikoshi High School, a Japanese high school that caters to celebrity students, but did not graduate.

At the age of 15, Matsuda was offered the role of the desirable young samurai Kanō Sōzaburō in Nagisa Ōshima's 1999 film Gohatto. The role helped boost him from an entirely unknown actor to a film star.
Since appearing in Gohatto, Matsuda has played a wide range of roles, from the high school student Kujo in the 2001 film Blue Spring to the rock star Ren Honjo in the 2005 film Nana.

On 11 January 2009, Matsuda married Lina Ohta (太田 莉菜, Ōta Rina?), a Russian-Japanese model. Their first child, a baby girl, was born on 4 July 2009.

    Ryuhei is a high profile Japanese actor and I can definitely see where that came from. His coolness and perfect portrayal of the roles he gets hold of are simply flawless. I got the chance to meet him in several productions whether as a main or as a supporting character and he always managed to snatch the lights even for a while, he has this amazing way of taking complete control of his character and make it sound like a part of himself. I am definitely in love with his screen presence, He's not exactly a fierce actor but he can turn intense when his role demands him to
    .
    If it wasn't for my immense love for Tsumabuki Satoshi, I would've considered him the best young actor in Japan around. But he definitely comes second alongside Eita, Yamada Takayuki and Oguri Shun.
