Annabel & Christina Gualazzi
Talent Agent & Manager
Annabel Gualazzi – Talent Agent, WME
The Michigan native is helping some of Hollywood’s hottest young talent take their next big career steps, from landing 13 Reasons Why‘s breakout star Katherine Langford a role in Fox 2000’s adaptation Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens to getting The Get Down‘s Justice Smith into the Jurassic World sequel. She also nabbed Selena Gomez a role in Woody Allen’s next film and works closely with Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland and Mr. Robot star Rami Malek. The Michigan State alum began her agency career as an ICM assistant and then worked for Bonnie Liedtke at William Morris. “Bonnie was heavily in the kid business, so I learned early on the amount of work that goes into it,” says Gualazzi, who followed her twin sister (a manager) to L.A. and became an agent at WME in 2009. She adds, “I gravitate toward people who are looking for great material and aren’t necessarily looking to get famous.”
Christina Gualazzi – Talent Manager, Silver Lining Entertainment
Born and raised in Marquette, Michigan and graduate of Central Michigan University, Christina Gualazzi has always had a passion for film and television growing up in a small town using it as a way to ‘see’ the world. Moving to California after graduation and getting her foot in the door at a management company for three months led to her move to The Collective. In 2009, she was promoted to Talent Manager and then moved over to the new offshoot of the company Silver Lining Entertainment where she has worked with amazing scripted and non-scripted talent to evolve and guide their careers.
