Gaku Sano at an early age wanted to perform in showbiz. So at the age of 19 whilst also applying for University, on recommendation entered the 24th JUNON Super Boy Contest. He was awarded the Grand Prix, and soon afterwards started to act. His first major role was as a classmate in the 2012 reboot GTO. Then in 2013 he won the coveted role as Kouta a.k.a Kamen Rider Gaim in the 2013 series Kamen Rider Gaim.

Gaku, like his friend and rival SEIYA, prides himself on his athleticism. And has appeared for the last three years in SPORTS Danshi Grand Prix, where he obtained overall victory at age 19. For the last three years he also has consecutively won the “beach flag climb” and is nicknamed the Speedster. He also has prowess at acrobatics, and can be constantly showing off his skills (and bright smile) when happy.

Notable Works

Sano came onto my radar, and probably most people, as classmate Ishida Takumi in the GTO remake (2012). (Although he did play a guest actor in episode 6 of Kurohyo2, which is credited as his debut).  However he is best known for currently playing the protagonist the 2013/2014 Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider Gaim.

As well as appearing on dramas, Sano also has started to act in stage plays, his most famous role as Kitamura in the Shinsengumi PEACE MAKER butai (2012).
