‘Tangerine’ Star Mya Taylor Signs with ICM

ICM Partners has signed “Tangerine” star and transgender actress Mya Taylor and will represent her for film and TV acting and producing projects.

Taylor won an IFP Gotham Award for Breakthrough Actor. She is nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Magnolia Pictures has launched the first-ever Oscar campaign for trans actors Taylor and “Tangerine” co-star Kitana Kiki Rodriguez. Caitlyn Jenner recently came on board the campaign by hosting a screening Monday in Los Angeles.

“Your performance was magnificent… I’m really, really proud of you,” Jenner said to Taylor at the event.

“Tangerine” was shot entirely with iPhone 5S cameras and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 2015. Set in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve, it follows the adventure of trans sex worker Sin-Dee (Rodriguez) and her best friend and fellow prostitute Alexandra (Taylor) as they set out to confront Sin-Dee’s cheating pimp boyfriend and his new love interest. Baker and Taylor collaborated together on the story.

Taylor is currently developing a semi-autobiographical television show focusing on her coming-out story and transition. She will also be playing the title role in the short film “Happy Birthday, Marsha!” a biopic of trans activist Marsha P. Johnson, directed by Reina Gossett and Sasha P. Wortzel.

In addition, she recently wrapped production on the short film “Diane and the Moon.”

Taylor will continue to be managed by Framework Entertainment.

ICM Partners also represents “Tangerine” executive producers Jay and Mark Duplass, as well as the film’s writer/director Sean Baker.
