In their message, Takahashi and Iitoyo write:

To everyone who has supported us

Although it is a personal matter, we, Issei Takahashi and Marie Iitoyo, have registered our marriage.

Our relationship began when we had the chance to take part in the same production, and as we worked together on set, we felt a deepening bond with each other. We would like to announce that after about a year of dating, we were able to celebrate this day with blessings from everyone involved in the work.

She does not taint the words she speaks and does not give up on living a bright life. I have been saved many times by the pure power of her positive energy as she walks with dignity.

I was attracted to his personality, which is unbiased and thoughtful when responding to things and people, and he uses his wisdom to enjoy life in a playful and fun way. His smile and compassion have always saved my heart.

We will continue acting as we have in the past, but we will also continue to enrich our lives not only as actors, but also as human beings.

We look forward to your continued support in the future.

Their nice message to their respective fans and those they have worked with has received over 250 thousand likes to her Instagram post. The official X (formerly Twitter) account for the Rohan at the Louvre live-action film posted a congratulatory message to the newlyweds.
