Andrew Koji – The New Storm Shadow

Andrew Koji Storm Shadow

Our guest is a British actor of mixed-Japanese heritage, a martial artist and stuntman – Andrew Koji. Koji is known for TV shows like The Wrong Mans, Call the Midwife, and most recently the Cinemax action-drama, Warrior. He’s currently back in Tokyo for the GI Joe spin-off movie, Snake Eyes. He co-stars along Henry Golding, Samara Weaving and the rest of the production crew. Andrew Koji is set to play Storm Shadow, a ninja who must face off against his nemesis, Snake Eyes (Golding,) who is also his sword brother.
Koji says the new movie is more authentic in its cultural background story, its Japanese sword fights, its Ninja culture and its locations than the previous episodes. The movie will premiere in October. In his free time, Koji explored his own roots. Half British, half Japanese, he had a chance to revisit his own cultural roots and family heritage in Japan while enjoying his favorite Japanese food and many interesting locations Japan has to offer.
