Suzu “Samon” Tamura – Japan
“I’m in the play for one scene, but work with props after. Funny how life imitates art.”
Samon plays Oiwa’s father, slain by Iemon in the first scene for suggesting the two of them separate for his daughter’s own good. Samon the actor might’ve liked a larger role, but his skill with holography and stage direction made him a perfect choice for the brief role. Against the infected xenos, he’s also something of the propmaster, keeping the troupe’s weaponry and gear in order and functioning between fights. He also painted and accessorized their weapons to match their costumes, claiming boredom instead of insomnia.
