Both on-screen and off, Ryan Potter is Hiro Hamada. The actor will attest, both he and his Big Hero 6 counterpart share a history and background that's uncannily similar. Hiro lives in the city of San Fransokyo, a fusion of San Francisco and Tokyo. It just so happens that Potter hails from both locales. Hiro is selfless in his efforts to save the world, and Potter is equally heroic as the head of his own non-profit charity and an advocate for the "No H8" campaign. And, through pure coincidence, both characters are practically identical to one another.
