Additionally, the creator of the original ‘One Piece’ manga was also closely watching the production of the show.

    All in all, everything worked out almost perfectly, the actors, the sets everything. However, despite the other details Taz Skylar’s behind-the-scenes was considered to be the most hardworking of all. While the actor has nailed the role of Sanji, it took a lot of effort from his side to do so.

    Taz Skylar, in an interview, talked about how to portray Sanji he learned to cook alongside training for tai-kwon-do for over 8 hours a day. He claimed that due to him relating to the character on a personal level he didn’t want stand-ins for the scenes involving those skills.
