Photos of young Hiroyuki Sanada: He made his first major Hollywood appearance portraying Ujio in The Last Samurai (2003), later appearing in such films as Sunshine (2007), Speed Racer (2008), The Wolverine, 47 Ronin (both 2013), Minions (2015), Life (2017), Avengers: Endgame (2019), Army of the Dead (2021), Bullet Train (2022), and John Wick: Chapter 4 (2023). He also had recurring roles on Lost (2010) and the HBO series Westworld (2018–2020).

Photos of young Hiroyuki Sanada: When Hiroyuki Sanada was a teenager, he read something that had a profound effect on how he viewed the future. Written by Tokugawa Ieyasu on the occasion of his abdication as shōgun, the military leader of Japan, the Testament of Ieyasu contained many lessons, but what stuck out to Sanada was Ieyasu’s first precept: “Life is like walking along a road shouldering a heavy load; there is no need to hurry”

“Never rush. That word hit my heart,” Sanada, 63, tells me over a Zoom call in early February. “I was always thinking about the future. Not tomorrow — ten years later, thirty years later. I want to be a better person, better actor. So, what do I have to do now?”

Shōgun, which premiered on Hulu and Disney+ earlier this week after a decade of development, is a culmination of all of that. Sanada has been attached to the series for seven years, both as star and producer.

Photos of young Hiroyuki Sanada: Fifty years after his introduction to Ieyasu’s lessons, he is telling the story of Ieyasu’s rise to power, albeit starring as the fictional replica of this towering figure of Japanese history, Lord Yoshii Toranaga. It’s a role for which Sanada feels uniquely qualified. “Fate is one of the themes of this show,” Sanada says. “But [it] felt like fate to play this role.”

Indeed, it’s impossible to imagine anyone else playing Toranaga. Having moved to Los Angeles 20 years ago, Sanada has carved out a path as one of the most prolific and versatile screen presences of the twenty-first century as well as a go-to for Western directors depicting Japan.

Shōgun is unlike any Western depiction of Japan we’ve seen before. Though filmed in Vancouver, the vast majority of Shōgun’s spoken lines are in Japanese, delivered by an almost exclusively Japanese cast.

It dramatically shifts the perspective from James Clavell’s Eurocentric novel, as well as other Western portrayals of Japanese culture. Shōgun is the final product of decades of work to bring to Western audiences a truer image of Japan.

“Usually, if I’m involved in some movie or TV show using our culture, I [consult] by myself as an actor. But I felt the limit to say something, as an actor,” he says. “This time, I’ve got a title as a producer, so, you know I could hire Japanese crew, experienced samurai filmmakers.”

Photos of young Hiroyuki Sanada: That Japanese crew is one Sanada has assembled over years of working in the genre. “Hiro had at the ready the exact people he was hoping to enlist, be they experts on movement or wig application, props or even obi tying,” says Rachel Kondo, who co-created Shōgun with Justin Marks. “It was as if he had been waiting for something like 20 years to suggest these people.”
