Ryo Hayami (速水 亮 Hayami Ryō) played Keisuke Jin, the titular rider of Kamen Rider X. He reprised his role in Kamen Rider Stronger & Kamen Rider (Skyrider).

Despite Kamen Rider X going on to make later minor appearances, including in recent crossover movies, Ryo Hayami has yet to reprise his role again. In 2009, he complained that Toei did not inform him of the Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs Dai-Shocker movie, saying that he would be willing to return. In 2012, Ryo commented on the passing of Shigeru Araki, who played Kamen Rider Stronger.[1]

34 years after his final appearance as Kamen Rider X, Ryo Hayami reprised his role for the 2014 film, Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai.
