Acting career

Okumura, whose real first name was Susumu, started out as a theater actor in the early '50s. He landed his first television drama role a few years later. For the next several decades, Okumura continued to play countless supporting roles on both the big screen and the small screen. Other then Ryunosuke Sugishita, he also played Ryunosuke's ancestor in episodes 12 & 13 and later God in Episode 36 as a little inside joke to explain Bakuryu Triceratops' transformation into a human.

One of his last performances was in director Rodo Seji's movie "I am." (starring Asami Mizukawa), which began its limited run on January 23, 2010.


He died at the age of 79 from respiratory failure.
