GACKT’s real age is…

November 9, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have always wondered how old GACKT is but just by the looks he’s way past thirty. It seems I’m right. 😀



GACKT Reveals Real Age!


The singer GACKT has finally revealed his real age. It happened during the press conference held in Tokyo for the stage production ‘眠狂四郎無頼控 / Nemuri Kyoshiro Burai-hikae‘ in which he plays the lead role for the first time. At the beginning of a video segment introducing the outline of the project, his age was given as ‘to turn 37 years old in 2010’. Afterwards during the Q&A session reporters asked if it was the first time GACKT told how old he was. He smiled wryly while replying “A long while ago at a concert, on a whim I said I was born in 1540. Somehow that became my official year of birth. Since then I couldn’t find an opportunity to correct it. I wasn’t keeping my age a secret or anything.”

As the main character Nemuri Kyoshiro of the ‘Nemuri Kyoshiro’ series GACKT will appear in various media. The stage production written by Koyama Kundo is the first in line of the ‘NEMURI×GACKT PROJECT‘. After the theater version of ‘Nemuri Kyoshiro’, the combined character ‘NEMURI×GACKT’ will be featured in manga, anime, video-games and film.

From summer GACKT has been in the process of losing 10 kilos for his role. “Up until the summer I had been building up my body in order to stay healthy during the tour. But I’ve put on too much muscle for my role, so I’ve since shed 5 kilos. I’m trying to lose 5 more kilos to make a body sharp as steel, one that will hurt you if you touch. Just like a swordsman [Nemuri Kyoshiro is a master with katana].”

Oh so he was not keeping it a secret. One word from him about it and everybody just shuts up. What an influence! Okay, GACKT, we learned a lesson. You joke too. 😛

    I still find it hard to believe that he was born in 1973 and is only 36 now. Either he’s lying now or he lied in his autobiography Jihaku.
