Following her appearance in the well-received Hulu feature “Prey,” Amber Midthunder has joined CAA for representation.
The fifth instalment of the action-thriller series, “Predator,” which was directed by Dan Trachtenberg, was billed as Hulu’s most watched TV or movie premiere ever. The project, which was set in the Comanche Nation in 1717 and featured Midthunder, an enrolled tribe person at the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Indian Reservation, also represented a pivotal cultural moment for Indigenous participation in the business. Midthunder plays Naru, a young warrior battling to defend her tribe from a Predator, in the movie. She was added to Variety’s yearly list of the 10 Actors to Watch after receiving praise from both the critics and the crowd for her performance.
Prior to signing on for “Prey,” Midthunder starred in Jonathan Hensleigh’s “The Ice Road” for Netflix alongside Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburne. She co-wrote, co-produced, and starred in “The Wheel,” which had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in 2021 to rave reviews. With Aubrey Plaza, Dan Stevens, Jeremie Harris, Katie Aselton, and others, Midthunder played Kerry Loudermilk on Noah Hawley’s “Legion” series on FX from 2017 to 2019. She played Rosa Ortecho on “Roswell, New Mexico.”
Midthunder will play Princess Yue, the sympathetic spiritual chief of the Northern Water Tribe, in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Netflix’s “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series, it was announced last week.
In addition to CAA, Corner Booth Entertainment, Darren Trattner of Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer, and Rogers & Cowan PMK continue to manage Midthunder.
