The actress, who is also a regular on HBO’s 'The Deuce,' is one of the festival’s most promising young breakouts.

Dominique Fishback, star of the Sundance drama Night Comes On, has signed with UTA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

The Brooklyn native was named one of THR’s festival breakouts for her lead turn in the feature directorial debut of actress Jordana Spiro. In the pic, which premiered to critical praise in Sundance’s NEXT section, Fishback plays Angel, a teenager striving to care for her younger sister, who is in foster care, while seeking revenge for their mother, who was killed by their father. “[The film] cements the promise of Fishback as a face to watch,” raved THR critic David Rooney in his review. “A magnetic presence at the center of virtually every scene, she gives a beautifully internalized performance, defined by taciturn Angel’s anger but softened by her scarred humanity.”

Fishback also has earned critical acclaim as the young sex worker Darlene on HBO’s The Deuce. She will next appear in Fox 2000’s eagerly anticipated adaptation of Angie Thomas’ Black Lives Matter YA novel The Hate U Give. Her previous credits include the HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero and USA’s Royal Pains.

Fishback continues to be repped by attorneys Ira Schreck and Julie Feldman at Schreck Rose.
