“Rashomon” Actor Machiko Kyo Dies at 95 in Japan

TOKYO – Japanese actor Machiko Kyo, well-known for her lead role in Akira Kurosawa’s classic “Rashomon,” has died at the age of 95, public broadcaster NHK reported on Tuesday.

NHK said Kyo died on Sunday from heart failure.

“Rashomon,” released in 1950, became the first Japanese film to win the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1951.

Kyo, whose real name was Yano Motoko, began her career as a dancer in a revue company when she was 13 and later joined the film industry. She also appeared on television later on and theatrical plays into her 80s.

She starred in Kenji Mizoguchi’s “Ugetsu,” which also won the Silver Lion award at the 1953 Venice Film Festival.

Her other notable films include Teinosuke Kinugasa’s “Gates of Hell,” which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1954.

She made her Hollywood debut in Daniel Mann’s “The Tea House of the August Moon” in 1956, sharing screen space with the likes of Marlon Brando and Glenn Ford.
