Takaya played Paris for Sport For Jove Theatre Company from 2009 to 2011. Takaya saw Paris as the most tragic character in the play.
"Paris is a boy who does everything right to only end up dead for his efforts, he doesn’t find true reciprocated love like Romeo. He follows all the rules of courtship in the setting and essentially has only positives ever spoken of him. However he ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time"
Takaya’s portrayal of Paris created an equal to Romeo to make Paris’ death all the more tragic and to highlight the notion of true love, that is, the love between Romeo and Juliet.
