MIYAVI will be performing as an actor for the film “Unbroken”, which will be directed by Angelina Jolie.
This will be his first challenge and his official debut as an actor.
The film is scheduled to be released in Dec. 2014 in North America.
So from now on, please look forward to his appearance on the big screen,as well as of course, his performance as a musician.
Here’s the official comment from MIYAVI.
“As a musician, and also with the fact that the subject of the movie was somewhat sensitive to the Japanese people, I questioned whether I should take a break from my craft to pursue this role, but after meeting Angie, it became clear to me that an underlying theme to this story is forgiveness, and I thought I might eventually become like a bridge between the two states and the world, by depicting the gruesomeness of the war. This idea resonated with me because that is exactly what I want to express through my music. I look forward to taking on this challenge whole-heartedly.”
