William Tomomori Fukuda Sharpe is an English-Japanese screenwriter and actor, also co-creating productions with Tom Kingsley.

He is probably best known for his role as Yuki on Casualty or as Shun in Flowers (2016), both alongside Sophia Di Martino (as Polly and Amy, respectively). His other acting roles cast him as various different Asian characters, as well as English ones, too.

However, his highest acclaim is from writing and directing, for which he has been nominated for a BAFTA award. He also formerly wrote for the TV comedy panel show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He is often a case of Directed by Cast Member and Written by Cast Member, as he acts in most works he writes and directs, including his debut Cockroach/Gokiburi in 2009 as well as Black Pond in 2011 (also with Di Martino) and The Darkest Universe in 2016 (his last work with Kingsley).


He read Classics at Cambridge, where he was the president of the Footlights, which is a massive deal in British performing arts, later training and performing with the RSC.
