Yoshida Yō (born February 3, 1974) is a Japanese actress from Kurume, Fukuoka who is represented by the talent agency Oranku. She discovered her love for acting after first appearing on stage in 1997, where she stayed until 2007 when she was discovered by Fujio Takashi while acting in a play with the Kawashima Naomi. That same year she made her first appearance on the silver screen in ‘Love Maze.’

The biggest turning point in her career was her role in the 2008 drama series ‘Pupil’ with Nishida Toshiyuki. At the time, Fuji Television was celebrating its 50th anniversary with the series ‘Garden of Breeze’ and its lead actor, Nakai Kiichi, saw Yoshida’s performance and immediately requested the producer of the show to create a role for her. Years of effort finally saw Yoshida on the big screen in 2009 in ‘Twentieth Century Boys 2: The Last Hope’. Then, in 2011 and 2012 she appeared in NHK’s Taiga Drama, and her guest role performance in the asadora ‘Jun & Ai’ received much attention and gained her another role in the same series as the character Fujiko. In 2014, she received acclaim for her role as Prosecutor Baba Reiko in the second season in the iconic drama ‘Hero,’ for which she finally won an award at Tokyo's International Drama Festival for best supporting actress. 2015 was a break-out year for Yoshida and she appeared in four TV shows, with her role in ‘Flying Colors,’ which won her the 39th Japan Academy Prize for best supporting actress, and four movies, which netted her best supporting actress nods in the 40th Hochi Film Awards and Blue Ribbon Awards.

Yoshida's decades of hard work continued to progressively pay off in 2016. She had supporting roles in NHK’s taiga, Sanada Maru and the drama Naomi and Kanako. Then, she received her first main roles, starring in the dramas Medical Team: Lady Da Vinci no Shindan and Cold Case: Shinjitsu no Tobira, as well as the films Will You Marry My Wife? and Desperate Sunflowers.
