After graduated from high school, Yamada Yuki started his career by entering Watanabe Entertainment College (WEC) and graduating from the college in the 6th period.
In 2010, Yuki became a finalist in the “D☆DATE New Member Audition” but was not chosen at the time. However, he got the first place in the “D-Boys division” Grand-Prix and it lead him to join D2 in December.
In 2011, he made his acting debut as Joe Gibken in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
His father, Yamada Kazutoshi, is a former professional baseball player who is now a coach of Hiroshima Toyo Carp Protective Base. Since Yuki was a child, he admired his father who appeared in the television and decided to follow his father’s path. He continued playing baseball until Junior High School before the thought of not becoming a professional swayed his mind and it lead him to quit baseball. Although his father said he was not opposed by Yuki’s choice, his father quite disappointed because Yuki didn’t finish what he started in the first place (playing baseball). After that, Yuki decided to finish whatever the next thing he choose (and that is being an actor).
