Will Sharpe Biography – Will Sharpe Wiki

Will Sharpe is an English actor, writer, and director. He was born in London and raised in Tokyo until the age of eight. After moving back to the United Kingdom, he studied at Winchester College.

After graduating from Winchester, Sharpe read classics at the University of Cambridge, where he was the president of the Footlights Revue. Sharpe graduated in 2008 and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company for their 2008/2009 season.

Sharpe spent a year at the RSC and appeared in such plays as The Taming of the Shrew, The Merchant of Venice, and The Tragedy of Thomas Hobbes, in which he played a young Isaac Newton. He played the character of Yuki Reid in the BBC medical drama Casualty.

He directed and co-wrote, along with his friend Tom Kingsley, the short film Cockroach in 2009. The pair’s first feature-length film, Black Pond, was shown at the Prince Charles Cinema in London in November 2011. Shortly after, he was co-nominated for a BAFTA Award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer for the film.

Sharpe is known for writing, directing, and starring in the dark comedy-drama Flowers, which premiered on Channel 4 in 2016. Starring Olivia Colman, Julian Barratt, Daniel Rigby, and Sophia Di Martino, Flowers is a black comedy that tackles mental health, and follows the four eccentric members of the Flowers family as they navigate their lives together, and their own inner demons. The first series won a BAFTA Television Award for best scripted comedy, and the second series aired in 2018 to widespread critical acclaim.

In 2020, the actor won a BAFTA Television Award for his supporting role as Rodney Yamaguchi in BBC drama Giri/Haji—a role The Independent called ‘one of the most riotously funny turns since Richard E Grant stepped out as Withnail.’

Sharpe directed and co-wrote the 2021 biographical comedy-drama film The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the artist Louis Wain.

In 2022, he joined the cast of the HBO series The White Lotus in its second season, set in Sicily, as Ethan Spiller, a newly wealthy tech entrepreneur on vacation. This role earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

The actor was announced as the director of the film adaptation of Japanese Breakfast frontwoman Michelle Zauner’s memoir, Crying in H Mart in 2023.
