Takahiro Sakurai (櫻井 孝宏 Sakurai Takahiro?, born June 13, 1974) is a Japanese voice actor who was born in Aichi. He was a member of 81 Produce and since July 20 of 2014 is attached with INTENTION, the management company established by Kenichi Suzumura, one of his good friends; his height is 1.76 m (5 ft 9 in).

Many of his roles are handsome (and mostly charming) men. However, he has also voiced reluctant heroes (such as Mega Man X) as well as the occasional villain (Maximilien Robespierre in Le Chevalier D'Eon, Hiltz in Zoids: Guardian Force and Sasori in Naruto Shippūden). Sometimes, he is also typecast to play angsty and arrogant young men (such as his famous rendition of Cloud Strife in Compilation of Final Fantasy VII), and also loner characters such as Izuru Kira in Bleach. More recently, he also provided the voice of Edward Cullen in the Japanese dub adaptations of the Twilight Saga films.
