Yukie Nakama (仲間 由紀恵 ,Nakama Yukie, born October 30, 1979) is a Ryukyuan actress, singer and former idol. She was born in Urasoe, Okinawa, the youngest of five siblings.

She is one of the few young Japanese celebrities that have been able to break free from their teeny-bopper image and emerge as one of the country's most popular and well-respected actresses. At the start of her career she was a gravure idol and appeared in bit parts until her career breakthrough role playing Sadako in "Ring 0: Birthday (2000)."

In 2000, Nakama demonstrated her talent for comedy with her lead role in the Japanese television drama Trick which proved so popular that it had two more seasons, but it was the top-rating TV series Gokusen (2002), a live-action version of the popular manga, that established her as one of Japan's most popular and bankable actresses.

Nakama has also proven her bankability through commercial endorsements, such as Nissin, Glico, Lotte, Asahi, Shiseido, au by KDDI, and has even served as a spokesperson for Japan Railways and the Japanese Tax Agency. As one of Japan's most ubiquitous celebrity endorsers, she is a regular face on billboards and at subway stations. She is managed by Production Ogi.

In 2008, Nakama has been filming I Want to Be a Shellfish (私は貝になりたい/Watashi wa Kai ni Naritai).
