EXCLUSIVE: Kylie Jefferson, breakout star of Netflix’s hit ballet drama Tiny Pretty Things, has signed with Buchwald for representation.
Tiny Pretty Things takes inspiration from Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra’s book and follows a group of aspiring ballerinas and danseurs as they seek to rid their pre-professional school of scandal and toxicity. Jefferson drew critical praise in her acting debut as the mature drama’s ambitious and dedicated lead Neveah Stroyer.
Jefferson can also be seen in Netflix’s Dance Dreams: Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy and their award-winning version of The Nutcracker.
