Ryoma Takeuchi (竹内涼真) portrayed Shinnosuke Tomari, the protagonist of Kamen Rider Drive.
Every year, different regions of GQ Magazine announce a special “Men of the Year” award. There are a total of ten winners in different categories.
In 2018, Ryoma Takeuchi won the Best Actor award for 2018.
Takeuchi has continued his acting career since the end of Kamen Rider Drive. In 2018 alone, he was nominated for 72nd Mainichi Film Awards for Best New Actor, and won the 41st Japan Academy Prize and 42nd Elan d’or Awards for Newcomer of the Year.
In a short statement, Takeuchi stated he was looking forward to shooting the photos for the cover. He had the opportunity to wear stylish clothing and new hairstyles that are new to him.
His most memorable event this year was watching the Japanese match at the World Cup.
Takeuchi plans to take what he learned in 2018 and use it to grow further in 2019.
