Japanese actor Satoshi “Bin” Furuya will be making a rare appearance in the U.S. to attend this year’s festivities. He is best known for portraying the original Ultraman, where he donned the gray and red uniform on a weekly basis to save the universe from humanity’s greatest foes!
Satoshi “Bin” Furuya is a Japanese actor who enthralled generations of children with his portrayal of the original Ultraman. Working with Godzilla suit actor, Haruo Nakajima, the two developed a unique fighting style that would fit the idea of an intergalactic hero who battled giant monsters. Furuya wore the gray and red suit for the entire original series and would later go on to feature in other shows such as ULTRA SEVEN.
