EXCLUSIVE: One of the leads in the Best Foreign Language Oscar nominated film The Broken Circle Breakdown has signed on with ICM Partners, I’ve learned. Veerle Baetens, who plays tattoo artist and grieving mother Elise Vandeveld in the film, will be repped by the agency in all areas. As well as being an Oscar nominee this year, Broken Circle Breakdown, directed by Felix van Groeningen has been a blockbuster in Belgium and spawned the best selling soundtrack in the nation’s history. Additionally, Baetens herself won the Best Actress award at both the 2013 European Film Awards and Tribeca Film Festival last year for her performance. The singer and actress, who also starred in the Starz/BBC drama The White Queen, will continued to be repped in Europe by Rosalie Cimino at UBBA.
