ICM Partners has signed Mya Taylor, a star of the indie pic Tangerine that has been garnering attention this awards season. Taylor and the film’s co-star Kitana Kiki Rodriguez are in the midst of the first Oscar campaign for trans actors via distributor Magnolia Pictures and executive producers Jay and Mark Duplass.
ICM Partners, which also reps the Duplass brothers and Tangerine writer-producer Sean Baker, will rep Taylor for film and TV acting and producing projects.
Taylor already has won a Gotham Award for Breakthrough Actor — a gender-neutral category that includes male and female nominees — and is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Indie Spirits. She currently is developing a semi-autobiographical TV show telling her coming-out story and transition. Taylor will continue to be managed by Framework Entertainment.
