Hiroshige Narimiya (平宮 博重, Narimiya Hiroshige) (born September 14, 1982), better known as Hiroki Narimiya (成宮 寛貴, Narimiya Hiroki), is a former Japanese actor.

Early life[edit]

He was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. His parents are from Okinawa Prefecture. His parents divorced when he was young, and in his third year of junior high school, his mother died and he raised his brother by dropping out of school and taking on part-time jobs and paid for his brother's high school and college expenses. He had made a promise to his mother to become serious about acting and through his multitude of part-time jobs, was eventually scouted and passed an audition making his way into his debut in 2000.

Career[edit]

He soon debuted in 2000 in the play "Horobikaketa Jinrui, Sono Ai no Honshitsu to wa (Perishing Humankind, What is the Essence of Its Love?)." Hiroki was chosen for the part of Kane out of the 3000 actors who auditioned.

In February 2001, he made his movie debut in "Oboreru Sakana", a Toei production. In 2002, he appeared as Noda in the television drama, "Gokusen." With his life-sized performance in this role, Hiroki won both serious acclaim and popularity. That same year, he was the lead in "Okan wa Uchu wo Shihaisuru", a television special on Fuji Television Network. Come 2003, he performed in his first period film, Azumi, which became a box office hit and allowed Hiroki to display his swordplay skills from daily training.

In 2004, Hiroki returned to the stage in the Shakespearean play "Oki ni Mesumama (As You Like It)" and had a supporting role in the TBS drama Orange Days. The next year, he starred in the TBS series "Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu" and was featured in four films, including Nana, the sequel for which was released December 2006. In 2012, Hiroki starred as Phoenix Wright in the live-action film adaption Ace Attorney directed by Takashi Miike.

While working on his acting career, Hiroki has been proving himself quite the fashion leader. He designed a line of clothes along with many collaboration projects. Fall 2003, he appeared as a model for his Tokyo collection. His trademark hairstyle (the "Narimiya Cut"[1]) became all the rage among Japanese teens. Hiroki has also appeared on more than 10 covers of fashion and other magazines in the past year and received the 2005 Crystallized Style Award (presented by Swarovski).[2]

Hiroki has received many offers to model overseas for high-fashion brands, which fits in his plans to pursue work outside Japan as both a model and actor.[3]

On December 9, 2016, Narimiya sent a fax to TV news channels announcing that he was leaving the entertainment industry due to allegations he used cocaine. [4]
