Obie Sho is one of the lucky people on this planet. He was born in Tokyo, Japan and then he was raised on the fantastically beautiful Japanese island of Yakushima. It’s a small island that has less than 14,000 people on it and he always remembers it with a smile and a very warm feeling. He also is a lucky guy because he is living a dream life as an actor in Hollywood and Las Vegas, two of the top entertainment centers in the world today.
When he was in high school, Obie never thought he would come over to the U.S. and be a movie actor. He did, however, learn fluent English and competed in the All-Japan English Speech Contest and die extremely well. So well, in fact, that after he gave his competitive speech he knew what his destiny was and where it would take him. He knew that he would devote his time and energy and his life to acting and performing in general.
His long resumé in such a short period of time testifies to the fact that Obie is succeeding and has established himself as an in-demand performer. Some of the projects that Obie has acted in are: Noburo, Tales From The Apocalypse, Shock, Birthday Boy, So, What Happened To Me Yesterday, Red Lotus, The Waste Land, If I Could Tell You, Bloody Hands, Stronghold, Tempus, Losing It, The Secret of Sunflower and Disney Channel’s Online Movie, Virtual High, to name just a few.
His stage play credits are almost as long so we will just mention, Waiting For Lefty, Zombies Rule, Angel Academy, All In The Timing and The Teacher Of Nature Yahushima. Obie’s long list of commercials will be shortened here just to give our readers a taste of what he has done: Braun razor commercial, World War Robot Commercial, E Sports World News Commercial, Henderson Hospital Commercial, Hiroki Hara First Illusion Trailer and several music videos including, Norwegian Black Metal and Laura Bell Bundy music video.
Obie has had extensive training in scene study, on-camera acting, stage presence, Uta Hagen & Genres, Voice, Improvisation, Strasberg’s Method technique and others. He speaks fluent English, Japanese and has a strong Spanish language background. Obie splits his time between Las Vegas and Hollywood and has several projects in development currently.
