Meet Mackenyu Arata, Who Played Seiya in “Knights of the Zodiac”
Mackenyu Arata (age: 26 years; born on November 16, 1996) is an American actor of Japanese heritage. People recognize him better as the son of legendary actor and martial artist Sonny Chiba. He came into acting in 2005 with a show titled “Astro kyûdan.”
In the next few years, he solidified his place in the Japanese acting industry with his work in productions like “Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future,” “Impossibility Defense” and “12 Suicidal Teens.” He was also in Steven S. DeKnight’s beloved film “Pacific Rim: Uprising.”
These days Mackenyu is earning attention due to his recent landing in Tomasz Baginski-directed “Knights of the Zodiac.” In this action-packed movie, Arata plays the part of an orphan, Seiya, who devotes himself to his life’s true purpose – protecting the goddess of war who exists in the body of a teenager.
Who is Mackenyu Arata’s Wife?
Mackenyu is very secretive about his personal life. He prefers not to share details about his personal life for obvious reasons. Despite his tendency to maintain mystery about his personal life, Arata is present on Instagram and Twitter, but there he only shares details about his projects and nothing about his love affairs.
In 2021 there were rumors about him dating a woman unrelated to the entertainment world. The identity of the said woman did not get revealed, but recently in January 2023, news came that Arata tied the knot with a lady he had been dating for a long time.
Where is Mackenyu Arata From?
On November 16, 1996, in the vibrant city of Los Angeles, America, Mackenyu Arata (age 26) was born to his father, Sonny Chiba, a renowned figure in the entertainment industry, and his loving mother, Tamami Chiba.
Growing up in a household filled with talent and passion, Arata was surrounded by inspiration from an early age. Mack attended Beverly Hills High School with his siblings, brother Gordon Maeda and half-sister Juri Manase.
From the tender age of 7, Mackenyu’s thirst for knowledge and adventure led him to horseback riding and Yabusame, an ancient form of mounted archery. The young prodigy displayed remarkable talent, demonstrating dedication and discipline far beyond his years.
At 8, Arata’s passion for martial arts blossomed, and he delved into the art of Kyokushin Karate. Tirelessly honing his skills, he trained rigorously, striving for excellence in every move.
During high school, he fearlessly ventured into gymnastics, water polo, and wrestling, embracing the thrill of these physically demanding disciplines.
Entering the World of Acting
At the tender age of 15, Mackenyu’s life took a dramatic turn, shaping his destiny forever. As fate would have it, he found himself captivated by a Japanese movie which ignited a sincere desire to embark on an acting journey.
In 2014 Arata appeared in the superhit film “So-On: The Five Oyaji,” following which he moved to Japan as he wanted to work more in Japanese movies. His decision was correct as on the Japanese land, his acting career skyrocketed.
The year 2015 proved very lucky for him as he got to work on 3 high-budgeted films “Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future,” “Take a Chance” and “Tadaima.” In the same year, he also appeared in various shows, namely “The Hatsumori Bemars,” “Commemoration! 1 Minute Stories,” and “Yume wo ataeru.”
The popularity of Mackenyu among youth increased his brand value leading to his appearance in TV commercials. In 2018 he appeared in Steven S. DeKnight’s “Pacific Rim: Uprising.” The movie did a collection of $291 million with its worldwide release and became his most successful work.
