EXCLUSIVE: Anna Sawai, who was recently cast in Universal’s upcoming Fast & Furious 9 opposite Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, has signed with WME.
The move comes after Sawai, who made her feature film debut in 2009 with a co-starring role in Warner Bros’ Ninja Assassin, co-starred this fall on Season 1 of the BBC Two crime drama Giri/Haji. The series hits Netflix in the U.S. next year.
