Okada Masaki, born in Edogawa-Ku, Tokyo, is a Japanese actor managed by Stardust Promotion. Okada was scouted in Harajuku when he was in the second year of junior high school. Initially, he refused the offer as he was absorbed in the activities of the basketball club. After entering high school he contacted the office and made his debut in 2006. He was enrolled in a university in Tokyo in parallel with his entertainment activities, but dropped out of the university at the end of 2009 and devoted himself to acting.

Okada's breakthrough came two years after his debut. From the winter of 2008 to 2009, Okada appeared in the starring roles for five movies that were released consecutively - "Someday's Dreamers", "Halfway", "Honokaa Boy", "Gravity's Clowns" and "Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu". These performances led him to the "Best New Artist" award at the 34th edition of the Hochi Film Award. He was also nominated for "Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role" at the 34th Japan Academy Film Prize for "Akunin" (2009) and "Confessions" (2010).

In 2012, Okada played the role of Minamoto no Yoritomo and also served as the narrator of the Taiga drama "Taira no Kiyomori". It was his first-ever appearance in a Taiga drama, and he became the youngest actor to portray the role of Minamoto no Yoritomo at the age of 22.

Okada made his stage debut in 2014 with "Total Eclipse", directed by Ninagawa Yukio. Most recently, he was portrayed Katsura Kotaro in the live-action film series "Gintama".
