De Labbey launches 3rd talent agency, UBBA


PARIS -- Talent agent Bertrand de Labbey has added a third string to his bow by setting up a new literary and artistic agency, UBBA, the partners said Monday.

De Labbey, who already heads up Artmedia and VMA in Paris, is setting up UBBA with French talent managers Celine Kamina (Artmedia) and Cecile Felsenberg (VMA) to form the agency.

UBBA will rep 150 artists, including top Gallic talent such as this year's Cesar award winner for best actress, Marina Hands; "Rush Hour 3's" Noemie Lenoir and Yvan Attal; and German-born model-turned-actress Diane Kruger.

"UBBA proposes, with the Artmedia and VMA agencies, a new and complete offer including film, television and theater," UBBA's new team said.
