As a young child, Sano's parents encouraged him to get into the showbiz. In November 2011, while Sano was still in college, he won the Junon Super Boy Contest.
It wasn't until 2012 until he made his first stage debut in February. In the same year, he landed many various roles in films and TV dramas.
After Kamen Rider Gaim: Final Stage stageshow, a cast talk show was held. During that scene, Gaku Sano broke into tears after receiving a gift, which was a Team Gaim T-Shirt signed by casts of Kamen Rider Gaim.
- Sano had once stated that he watched Kamen Rider Kuuga and hoped to inspire a new generation of boys with his portrayal of Gaim.

Outside of Gaim, Sano has demonstrated the ability to perform many amazing stunts, including being able to perform at least 15 consecutive back handsprings on the ground, among others. In fact, his physical performance has been praised by director Osamu Kaneda, action director Hirofumi Ishigaki and suit actor Seiji Takaiwa, and he has been remarked to have the best physical ability out of the previous actors who have portrayed the titular characters in the Kamen Rider Series.
