Actor Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki

Hi guys, my first post

Does anyone know who are the actors that play Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki in the 1990 TMNT movie?

It seems that Oroku Saki is played by another actor than James Saito.

I can't find it in the end credits or at IMDB.

Live action:
James Saito - Oroku Saki

Voice:
Kevin Clash - Splinter
David McCharen - Oroku Saki

As far as I know, the actor who plays Yoshi during flashback scenes is uncredited. As for Saki, I always thought it was Saito playing him in those scenes but I'm not sure.

I always loved the different photography on those scenes.

It doesn't look like Saito to me.

The actress who played Tang Shen was also uncredited. You could ask James on Instagram if he did the flashback scene as Oroku.

To me neither, he looks younger.

If they were played by extras, their names will be on the end credits but not identified by what role they played.

Shredder was played by an extra but they don’t even credit him as a proper role? I assume his paying rate was like any other extras too? Wow

They're not, I checked. And it's pretty rare to see extras getting any credit at all.

I assume someone figured it out 'cause we're getting figures from NECA, and they'd need to license their likenesseses.

If no one is credited in the movie that means no one is legally allowed to complain, I guess.

Yeah, that's true, now I think on it. There are exceptions where non-speaking roles get a credit, but it's rare. You'd think, given their relatively important roles, however brief their appearance, they'd get a credit.

It's a **** business.

Just briefly in the flashback, it appears, where pre-mutated Splinter scratched his face.
