Godzilla will never be the same again. Haruo Nakajima, the man who brought the Japanese monster to life, has died.
Nakajima wore the Godzilla bodysuit — which was originally made out of cement for nearly 20 years of movies, starting in 1954. He also played Mothra and King Kong in the 60s.
He started his career in samurai and World War II films before scoring the fire-breathing role in “Godzilla, King of the Monsters.” Nakajima was 88. May his soul rest in peace.
