Note about the name: Matsumoto Koshiro is the stage name of a line of kabuki actors in Japan. Most of these were blood relatives, though some were adopted into the family (source: wikipedia)

The current holder of the stage name, Teruaki Fujima was born on August 19, 1942 in Tokyo, Japan.

He made his stage debut in 1945, at the age of three, under the name Matsumoto Kintar? II, and took the name Ichikawa Somegor? VI four years later. He succeeded his father to the name Matsumoto K?shir? in 1981.

A graduate of Waseda University, and a versatile actor, K?shir? IX has performed extensively not only in kabuki, but in Western stage plays, film, and television. He has played, among many other roles, Benkei in Kanjinch?, K?chiyama S?shun in K?chiyama, Kumagai Jir? Naozane in Kumagai Jinya, and Matsu?maru in Sugawara Denju Tenarai Kagami.

In 1970, K?shir? appeared in the lead role in Man of La Mancha on Broadway in New York. Also, he has appeared as the King of Siam in The King and I in the West End in London. Other stage roles have included Motl in Fiddler on the Roof, the title role in Sweeney Todd, Salieri in Amadeus, Kitagawa Utamaro in the musical Utamaro, and Zeami Motokiyo in Musical Zeami.

His film credits include Emperor Hirohito in Japan's Longest Day (??????????, Nihon no ichiban nagai hi), in which famous actor Toshir? Mifune played General Korechika Anami, Ii Naosuke in Samurai Assassin (?, Samurai), and a number of other jidaigeki - samurai period films. (source: wikipedia)
