'Quantico' Star Priyanka Chopra Signs With WME
The Bollywood megastar is one of TV's breakout new fall faces.
Priyanka Chopra, one of the fall TV season's hottest new stars, has signed with WME. She had been with CAA since 2012, a relationship that had been formed through Chopra's longtime manager, Anjula Acharia-Bath.
The Bollywood megastar is making her long-awaited stateside television debut as the lead in ABC's buzzy, soapy FBI drama Quantico, which already has been picked up for a full season. She had read 26 scripts under her ABC Studios talent deal before handpicking the role of Alex Parrish, an FBI recruit accused of causing a terrorist attack on Grand Central.
Chopra has made more than 45 movies in her native India, a career that was launched when she won the title of Miss World in 2000. She also is a model — becoming, in 2013, the first Guess Girl of Indian descent — and singer. Her single "In My City" was chosen as the NFL Network's 2013 Thursday Night Football theme song, she recorded a duet with Pitbull and her cover of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" was featured in a nationwide Beats By Dre campaign. She also voiced a lead role in Disney's 2013 animated movie Planes.
