Yoshitaka Zushi

Yoshitaka Zushi (頭師佳孝, born March 19, 1955 in Osaka, Japan) was discovered when he was eight years old by one of Akira Kurosawa's partners and debuted in the role of young Toshio in Kaneto Shindô's "Haha" (Mother, 1963). Since then he has appeared first and foremost in Kurosawa's pictures, beginning with "Akahige" (Red Beard, 1965). His most outstanding role is undeniably that of Rokkuchan, the insane young man who drives a trolley through the slums, in the wonderful "Dodesukaden" (1970).
