- Haruo Nakajima: “I am Haruo Nakajima, and I was the first to play the role of Godzilla
Mr. Honda saw this scene and thought "This guy is full of energy." They came to see me as someone who had guts, and I think that& #039 ;s why they wanted me for the role of Godzilla.
Just from reading the script, I couldn& #039 ;t understand what& #039 ;s this (the monster) was, so I went to the zoo to do some research.
Since it is so big, I thought I should study big animals, like elephants and gorillas.
Since materials were so rare, things like rubber were not available. instead, they use ready-mixed concrete, so it& #039 ;d wait about 100 kg
It was so heavy and hot, and with the lighting, it was even hot just to touch it.
I was sweating all over my face, but I did the best I could.
I watch the film in the movie theater. instead of sitting in the back, I went to the very front to watch, and I watched the audience.
When the film was a success, I was so surprised. I was so happy
In the end, the Godzilla I played remains on films forever.
It remains in people& #039 ;s memory, and for that I feel really grateful." Haruo Nakajima
