  3. Tokihiko Okada Biography

    Tokihiko Okada (?? ??) (February 18, 1903 – January 16, 1934) was a Japanese silent film star in Japan during the 1920s and early 1930s. A Tokyo native, he first started at the Taikatsu studio and later he was a leading player for such legendary Japanese directors as Yasujiro Ozu and Kenji Mizoguchi. Film critic Tadao Sato recounts that Okada was among the handsomest and favorite Japanese actors of the era. Throughout his career, Okada played the role of the quintessential nimaime (translated as "second line") which were romantic, sensitive men as opposed to the rugged and hard-boiled leading men known as tateyaku. He was the father of film actress Mariko Okada. Tokihiko Okada died of tuberculosis a month and two days before turning 31 years of age.
