WMA lures duo from TalentWorks

Kid reps Liedtke, Bradwell head to agency

The William Morris Agency has hired moppet reps Bonnie Liedtke and Thor Bradwell away from TalentWorks.

While WMA reps a handful of young thesps, including “Little Miss Sunshine’s” Abigail Breslin, Vanessa Hudgens (“High School Musical”) and Keke Palmer (“Akeelah and the Bee”), move marks the first time the agency will have agents dedicated to discovering and finding work for young talent.

Liedtke spent the last 18 years doing that at TalentWorks and, along the way, discovered and repped Hilary Swank, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chad Michael Murray, Leelee Sobieski, Denise Richards, Selma Blair, Ben Foster and Mena Suvari.

Bradwell became an agent at TalentWorks in 2005 and has worked closely with Liedtke.

They join the WMA talent department and bring with them, among others, Zac Efron, the “High School Musical” star who next stars in “Hairspray.”
