UPDATE: Echo Lake has also brought over Graciella Sanchez to work with Brittany Kahan on starting the talent component of the management company. Aside from the Fanning sisters, the other actors coming aboard are: Jonathan Jackson (Nashville), Gregory Smith and Travis Milne (Rookie Blue), Ivana Milicevic (Banshee), Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black), Jacob Wysocki (Terri) and Marguerite Moreau.

EXCLUSIVE: As we kick off 2013, here’s a reminder that it’s a hard business. Dakota and Elle Fanning have left One Talent Management, where JJ Harris repped the actresses practically since they were babies. What happened is that the thesps were handled day to day at One Talent by Brittany Kahan, who is leaving them to start a talent management division at the production company Echo Lake, which previously repped filmmakers. She’s taking the Fannings with her. Dakota, coming to the end of the Twilight Saga films, just finished the Naomi Foner-directed Very Good Girls and the Richard Laxton-directed Effie, while Elle just finished Maleficent with Angelina Jolie and is attached to star in Olive’s Ocean. The actresses are agented by WME.
