Born in Taipei in 1973 to a Japanese father and Taiwanese mother, Takeshi grew up and attended a predominantly English-language International School in Taiwan and began appearing in commercials at the age of fifteen. Kaneshiro started his career in the early 1990s, appearing in a series of Taiwanese comedies and releasing several albums (six between 1992 and 1993). He rose to stardom in 1994 and 1995 playing leading roles in Wong Kar-wai’s international hits: “Chungking Express” and “Fallen Angels”.

He subsequently starred in several Hong Kong box-office hits including “Downtown Torpedoes”, “Anna Magdalena” and “Lavender”. In 1998, the popularity of “Sleepless Town” and the TV drama “God! Please Give Me More Time” established Kaneshiro as one of the most sought-after actors in Japan. Takeshi Kaneshiro speaks Japanese fluently – and has appeared in other Japanese films (like Space Travelers), television series and TV commercials. In 2002, Kaneshiro plays the lead in the Japanese sci-fi actioner “Returner”.

In 2003, after the ’99 hit “Tempting Heart”, Kaneshiro is reunited with Gigi Leung in “Turn Left Turn Right”. The following year, Kaneshiro made a genre-debut in Zhang Yimou’s epic swordsplay blockbuster “House of Flying Daggers”. Kaneshiro joined forces with director Peter Chan in the musical blockbuster “Perhaps Love” which garnered many awards throughout Asia. In 2006, Kaneshiro starred opposite Tony Leung in the thriller “Confession of Pain”.
