Aoi Nakamura (中村 蒼 Nakamura Aoi?), born on March 4, 1991 in Fukuoka, Japan, is a Japanese actor. He belongs to the talent agency LesPros Entertainment.[1]

History[edit]

Nakamura Aoi entered the entertainment industry when he won the Grand Prix at the final round of the 18th Junon Superboy Contest held in November 2005. He was in the third year at junior high school and only 14 at the time, making him the first ever junior high school student Grand Prix winner.[2]

Nakamura's father was responsible for sending in the application to the contest. Since Nakamura was a child he was called cute by those around him and his father wondered if it was really true, leading to the application.[3][4] Nakamura himself was initially unenthusiastic about the contest as he disliked having to leave Fukuoka for Tokyo, and felt more apprehension than happiness when he won.[5]

In October 2006, he made his debut as an actor in the stage play "Den-en ni Shisu", playing the lead role. At the end of March 2007, in order to start his entertainment activities seriously, he left his hometown of Fukuoka alone and moved to Tokyo.[6] In July, he received his first lead role in a drama serial, "Boys Este".[7] He also made his first movie appearance in the film "Koizora" which started showing in theatres November the same year.

Nakamura's first lead role in a movie "Hyakuhachi" showed in theatres in August 2008. In 2010, he was in movies one after another, including "Beck" and "Ooku". He also starred in "Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night" that premiered in November 2010 and was released in more than 30 countries.[8]

In 2011, from May to June, he played the leading role in stage play "Curry Life". In July, he played a semi-leading role in "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e 2011", a remake of popular drama serial.
