Ureo Egawa (江川 宇礼雄, Egawa Ureo, 7 May 1902 – 20 May 1970) was a Japanese actor active from the 1920s to the 1960s.

Career[edit]

Egawa was born in Kanagawa Prefecture to a German father and a Japanese mother.[1] His name "Ureo" is a Japanification of his German name "Willy". He joined the Taikatsu film studio in 1920,[1] but not finding stable work, he joined a gang of delinquents. Egawa of this period became the model for Ton Satomi's novel Juvenile Delinquent (不良少年, Furyō Shōnen).[1] Putting his life back together, he debuted as a director in 1927, but eventually joined the Shochiku studio as an actor, where he starred in films by directors such as Yasujirō Ozu and Yasujirō Shimazu. He later worked at Nikkatsu, Toho, and Shintoho, before appearing on television in the 1960s, most famously in Ultra Q. In his later years, he did charity work to help other mixed-race children.[1]
