Eita, born as Eita Nagayama on December 13, 1982 in Tokyo, Japan, is a popular Japanese actor & model. He is the middle child in a family of five. His older brother, Tazuya Nagayama, and younger brother, Kento Nagayama, are both actors as well. As a young child, Eita enjoyed making home movies with his brothers, but he didn't dream of becoming an actor. Instead, Eita enjoyed playing football (soccer) during his elementary and middle school days. His entrance into the entertainment world then came about in 1991 when Eita was a high school student. While walking on the streets, Eita was scouted by a talent agent. He would then make his debut as a model.
By 2001, Eita worked on a commercial for Coca-Cola which became popular with the youths and garnered Eita attention. In the same year, Eita made his acting debut on the small screen with the Fuji TV drama "Sayonara, Ozu-sensei" and on the big screen with "Blue Spring." The following year, Eita dropped his family name altogether and became known as just "Eita." During this time, Eita landed a variety of supporting roles, but didn't have anything stand out until the hit 2003 Fuji TV drama "Water Boys." Eita's starring role in the 2005 comedy "Summer Time Machine Blues," would further solidified his name as rising young actor. Along the way, Eita has picked up a variety of unique roles, switching just as easily from leading man to supporting actor and working in small indie films to big budget mainstream films. This has all worked to make Eita one of the more in demand actors working in Japan today.
