Tatsuo Fujioka (藤岡 竜雄 Fujioka Tatsuo, born August 19, 1980), better known as Dean Fujioka (ディーン・フジオカ Dīn Fujioka, stylized as DEAN FUJIOKA), is a Japanese actor, musician, model, director, artist, radio host. He is a talent of Amuse, Inc.
Dean Fujioka was born in Fukushima, Japan. Moving with his family, he grew up in Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture. Although he is multilingual (fluent in Japanese, English, Cantonese, Standard Mandarin, Indonesian) and made his first debut in the sphere of Chinese culture, yet he has clarified in some interviews and variety shows that his parents and grandparents are all Japanese, who used to work or live in foreign countries. Raised in such a family, he grew determined to explore the world with his eye.
Dean Fujioka started his career as a model in Hong Kong's fashion scene in 2004 for both local and international designer brands. He continued to appear in Hong Kong's leading fashion and lifestyle magazines. Simultaneously with his career in fashion, he also embarked on various advertising campaigns, appearing in TV and print commercials for both local and multinational clients in the Asia pacific region.
In 2006, he started to pursue a career in acting. He moved his base from Hong Kong to Taipei and appeared in his first TV series Goku Dou High School with Bao Weimin, Bao Xiaobo, and Kingone Wang. His very first film August Story, starring Tian Yuan, Dean Fujioka, and Jan Cheung, caught public attention in the film festivals held in Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan.
In 2007, he appeared as a talented pianist in the TV series Corner with Love with Barbie Shu and Show Lo. He also appeared in Summer's Tail, his first film in Taiwan, with Bryant Chang, Enno Cheng, and Hannah Lin.
In 2008, he appeared in the TV series Miss No Good with Rainie Yang and Will Pan, produced by Angie Chai. Afterwards, he suspended his career in acting and went to Jakarta, where he met DJ Sumo (Sumantri) and collaborated on his songs.
In 2011, he appeared in the feature film Seediq Bale, about the history of Taiwan under Japanese rule, and in the film Road Less Traveled with Vanness Wu, Jimmy Hung, Eric Tu, and Chris Lung. He joined Amuse, Inc. this year.
In 2014, he appeared as a Chinese historical figure in his first Japanese TV movie Shooting Down – Three Pilots, the dramatization of the lives of three fighter pilots from Japan, China, and the U.S.A. He also appeared as a noble samurai-like Japanese guy in the TV series The Pinkertons in North America.
In 2015, he appeared as a private detective in his first Japanese TV series Detective versus Detectives. He also impressed a mass audience with his appearance as a Japanese historical figure in the Japanese morning drama series Here Comes Asa and brought about a fever called Godai-sama Boom.
In 2016, he has not only appeared in the TV series Please Love Me and IQ246 but also starred in the web series Happy Marriage!? and the TV movie The Noisy Street, The Silent Sea, playing a variety of roles with distinctive personalities. Furthermore, he has resumed his career in music and started a regular segment in a radio program. He also released the single "History Maker" which is used as the opening of the anime Yuri on Ice.
In 2017, he starred in the live action adaptation of the anime and manga FullMetal Alchemist.
