Sakura Ando (安藤 サクラ Andō Sakura, born February 18, 1986) is a Japanese actress.
Ando won the award for Best Supporting Actress at the 31st Yokohama Film Festival 2010 for Love Exposure, The Wonderful World of Captain Kuhio and Tsumitoka batsutoka.[clarification needed] She was also nominated for the award for best supporting actress at 4th Asian Film Awards 2010 for A Crowd of Three.
In 2018, Ando received high praise for her performance as Nobuyo Shibata in director Hirokazu Kore-eda's Shoplifters, being called "fantastic" and "the stand-out", with film critic Simon Abrams stating that "Kore-eda gave Andô her character's (strictly metaphorical) dance steps, but she realizes and owns every maneuver she was asked to (and then some).... No small feat... given how subtly complicated her dance steps are."
