Mackenyu Maeda, known simply as Mackenyu, was born in Los Angeles on November 16, 1996. He attended Beverly Hills High School in their Advanced Placement Program and appeared as a child actor in a few films and TV series, including the TV mini-series Team Astro (Astro Kyûdan) (2005), in which both father and son acted in, and the Japanese feature film Oyaji (2007). However most of his time was devoted to school and graduation.

In 2012, Mackenyu turned his full attention to acting.  His acting quickly expanded to include three supporting roles in TV Mini-series including The Kindergarten Detective (Hanasaki Shin’ichirô wa nemurenai!!) (2015), Yume wo ataeru (2015), and The Hatsumori Bemars (2015). His fame grew dramatically in Japan after landing the role of Eiji Tomari/ Kamen Rider Drive.

In 2015, he also landed his first lead roles in two USA film productions, Take a Chance (2015) and Tadaima (2015); for the latter he won a best actor award. In January 2016, he made his stage debut in the Japanese musical Boys Over Flower (Hana Yori Dango: The Musical) (2016). He had a prominent role in the two part feature film Chihayafuru Part I & II (2016) which was released back-to-back in March and April 2016. One of his most challenging roles in his career to date was Shoujyo (Little Girl). Having completed his lead role as ‘Makise’ in the feature film Night’s Tightrope (Shôjo) (2016), Mackenyu started to expand his acting opportunities in Hollywood with a lead role in the series ZAPS, Inc. (2017) and the supporting role of Ryoichi in Pacific Rim: Maelstrom (2018).
