Miyavi & ‘The Others’


Miyavi is a Japanese rock star nicknamed “The Samurai Guitarist” for his unorthodox string-slapping style. “It’s like a katana, a Japanese sword, using the guitar like that,” he said.

He wielded a different weapon, a bamboo cudgel, as a sadistic Japanese officer in “Unbroken,” a World War II survival drama directed by Angelina Jolie that opened on Christmas of last year. Born Takamasa Ishihara in Osaka, Miyavi was in the process of moving to Los Angeles with his wife, the Japanese-American singer-turned-designer Melody Ishikawa, and two young daughters.

Although the director of the movie; Angelina Jolie wasn’t able to promote the movie due to chickpox, Miyavi still managed to promote the movie along with his co-stars Jack O’Connell (’71, Starred Up) plays Louie Zamperini, heading up an international cast that includes Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter series), Finn Wittrock (HBO’s “The Normal Heart”), Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy), Jai Courtney (Divergent), John Magaro (The Box), Luke Treadaway (Clash of the Titans), Ross Anderson (The Silent Storm). In the end the movie received a decent receptions from critics and moviegoers alike.
