BB Gandanghari signs up with U.S. talent agency
MANILA, Philippines – BB Gandanghari is one step closer to her dream of becoming an actress in Hollywood.
She announced last Thursday, September 14, that she has signed up with The Brogan Agency, a talent management firm.
"Just got signed! Thank you [The Brogan Agency] for this opportunity. Looking forward to new beginnings," BB wrote.
The post also showed her set cards.
According to its website, The Brogan Agency was established in 1988 in Los Angeles. The company represents actors for film, TV, commercials, print, and theater.
Back in January, BB had shared her thoughts about becoming a woman. BB was formerly known as Rustom Padilla, sibling of Robin, Rommel, and Royette Padilla, who became known in showbiz for their tough looks and action films.
In 2006, while still known as Rustom, BB announced on Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition that she was gay. She later clarified that she was a transgender woman, and after taking time off, came out as Binibini "BB" Gandanghari.
BB appeared in shows such as Enchanted Garden and 2 1/2 Daddies.
In November 2016, her petition to be recognized as a woman and for change of name was approved by a court in California. – Rappler.com
