I am so happy to finally share this short interview with stunt and suit actor Mizuho Yoshida from last year’s Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ. As many of the listeners know, I am a massive fan of the 2001 film commonly referred to as “GMK” by the fans. Yoshida played Godzilla in that epic film, but also the titular villain from the Zeiram duo-logy (1991 & 1994) and Cyber Ninja (Mirai Ninja – 1988), Death Ghidorah and Dagarla from the first two heisei Mothra standalone films (1996 & 1997), Legion in Gamera 2: Advent of Legion (1996), Zedus in Gamera The Brave (2006) and Raiga in Deep Sea Monster Raiga (2009). Right?? So many awesome monsters!

Yoshida-san was a fantastic interview subject, a great convention guest and I really hope he makes it back to the states for another show soon — plus he said he’d be on the Kaijucast again, so hopefully we can look forward to another interview in the future!
