Mortimer, who spent the past 12 years at Principal Entertainment, will begin working at Authentic immediately. She takes with her clients Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who most recently starred in Fox Searchlight's Belle, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will next be seen as the lead in Relativity's Blackbird; Michiel Huisman, who was a series regular on Treme and had recurring roles on Nashville and Game of Thrones; Daniel Sunjata, who stars in Graceland; David Harbour, who stars opposite Greg Kinnear on Rake; and Nonso Anozie (Ender’s Game and NBC's Dracula).

Mortimer will be based out of Authentic's New York offices.

"I am thrilled to have Meg and her amazing clients join us at Authentic," Rubinstein said. "She is smart and passionate with an incredible eye for talent, but most importantly she is a great human being."
