Yūko Odagiri (小田切 悠子 Odagiri Yūko?, born February 16, 1987 in Kanagawa, Japan), known by her stage name Yuu Kashii (香椎 由宇 Kashii Yuu?), is a Japanese actress and model. She studied at Mejiro University, where she majored in English. She married actor Joe Odagiri, who is exactly 11 years her senior, on February 16, 2008, the birthday the couple shares.[1] She reportedly gave birth to a baby boy in February 2011.

Kashii's maternal grandfather is a European-American newspaper reporter, and thus her ethnic background is ¼ European. Kashii spent her childhood in Singapore[2] and attended elementary school there.[3] She has been said to have exactly the same dimensions for her right and left side of the face which led to a German doctor wanting to use her face as a specimen for research uses.[4]

Kashii got her start in the entertainment business as an in-house model for the Japanese teen magazine mc Sister in 2001. Her first acting role was in the movie adaptation of Lorelei: The Witch of the Pacific Ocean in which she played the title character.
