Haruka Kuroda smile.jpg

I am a Japanese actor, voice-over artist, fight director & certified intimacy professional. 

My pronouns are she/her. 

Over the years, I’ve trained and worked in a range of theatrical arts, honing my skills and my understanding of this creative, challenging and ever-changing industry. Rather than feeling like a "Jack of all trades", I choose to think of myself as a bowl of delicious ramen noodles (bear with me, it will make sense in a sec!).

In an authentic bowl of ramen noodles, you will find many different flavours, colours and textures that can sometimes seem in contrast to one another. Yet, in the hands of a skilled ramen chef, those different elements all come together in perfect harmony, giving you a warm, happy and satisfied feeling! 

Whichever part of the industry I’m working in, whether on or back stage,  in front or behind the camera, I will always be my authentic self and bring a ramen bowl full of artistry to my work! It’s my goal to leave all my clients and colleagues with that same happy, satisfied feeling.

When I am not in work mode, you’ll find me at home in Southend-on-Sea, exploring the local beach and parks with my partner JC and our feisty, curious daughter,




"As a performer and theatremaker, Haruka is vibrant, nuanced, embodied, innovative, generous, and intelligent.  She brightens the rehearsal room as much as she does the stage."- Ailin Conant, Director

"Haruka has fantastic instincts, attention to detail, and a sense of play that made our sessions both great fun and productive."

-Matt Wieteska, Head of Production at Six to Start

"Haruka Kuroda’s fight sequences are beautifully stylised yet also tingle with danger."- The Guardian 

"Haruka is the best of collaborators, open-hearted, fearless, fun to work with and a ready problem solver. She creates a safe, nurturing environment to take risks and tell the clearest possible story in fights and intimacy. The work we arrived at was starling and impactful." 

- Russell Bolam, Director
