Netflix’s “One Piece” has a colorful, vibrant cast filled newcomers like Iñaki Godoy, who plays as Monkey D. Luffy, and some more seasoned actors like Vincent Regan, who plays Vice Admiral Garp. Netflix put in the work (seven years to be exact) to craft its live adaption of the bestselling manga series.

When “One Piece” creator Eiichiro Oda first saw Godoy, he knew that was his Luffy. Each of the cast members have created their own connection to their characters, and some loved and grew up watching them on screen as children.

Longtime anime fan Emily Rudd, who plays Nami, described her character as a member of the Staw Hats who sevves “like an older sister surrounded by a group of young brothers.” Mackenyu, who is Japanese, grew up idolizing his character Roronoa Zoro. He was so committed to his character that he even pierced his ears for the show, per Netflix. Steven Maeda said Jacob Romero “nailed” his reading for Usopp “from the get-go,” and Romero said the goodness of Usopp’s heart “was so clear” to him. As for Taz Skylar, before filming, he trained with taekwondo specialists, MMA fighters and a chef to prepare for his role as Sanji.

Here’s the entire cast and character guide for “One Piece,” which is now streaming on Netflix.
