The man behind the monster has died: Haruo Nakajima, who wore the Godzilla bodysuit for every "Godzilla" film from the original to 1972's "Godzilla vs. Gigan," has died at 88.
Japanese movie major Toho confirmed Nakajima's death. But it said that it had no plans to release a statement.
Nakajima's career began in samurai and war films, notably "Seven Samurai" by Akira Kurosawa and "Eagle of the Pacific." He landed the "Godzilla" role starting with 1954's "Godzilla, King of the Monsters," directed by Ishiro Honda.
