Meet Rick Kumazawa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rick Kumazawa.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always loved the idea of acting in front of the camera but growing up in a small town in the Midwest and country side of Japan, it wasn’t a realistic dream.

I started with commercial acting and print modeling in my late teens, when I moved to Tokyo for college. I was finally be able to surround myself with aspiring artists and actors. So I took a big step of moving to LA after college to pursue my dream.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been the toughest three years of my life by far but I cannot be any happier. The struggles people may seem that I go through isn’t really a struggle for me because this is the path I chose and I am 100% happy with what I am doing.

What else should our readers know?
As an actor, I think being authentic is the key. Being comfortable with showing the world who you truly are. and telling the stories only you can tell.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Everyone who’s been in my life in one way or another. I thank you all.
