Caitriona Balfe Signs With Brian DePersia’s Management Company Cognition

Longtime WME agent-turned-manager Brian DePersia has signed his first three clients under his new Cognition banner: Mahershala Ali, Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies.

All three were clients he repped at WME, and they will continue to be shared by that agency. Deadline revealed February 1 that DePersia was ending a WME run that started in 2000, and saw him become partner in 2016. His move to management is an amicable one and he starts his new business with formidable talent and more coming.

Two-time Academy Award winner Ali recently starred in and produced Swan Song for Apple and next stars opposite Julia Roberts in Sam Esmail’s Leave the World Behind for Netflix, as well as the iconic title role in Blade for Marvel. He is also set to star in The Plot, an adaptation of the Jean Korelitz bestseller for a limited series at Hulu/Onyx. Ali continues to be repped by WME and Sloane Offer.

Balfe was recently nominated for SAG, Critics Choice and BAFTA awards for her work in the Kenneth Branagh-directed Belfast. Balfe, who last starred in Ford V Ferrari alongside Christian Bale and Matt Damon, continues to star as the lead in the Starz series Outlander, with Season 6 premiering March 6. Balfe continues to be repped by WME, Emptage Hallett, and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.

Menzies won the Emmy in 2021 for his performance as Prince Phillip in the Netflix series The Crown, and he soon begins shooting the lead role in Apple’s limited series Manhunt, which chronicles Secretary of War Edwin Stanton’s hunt for John Wilkes Booth after Lincoln’s assassination. Menzies continues to be repped by WME and Conway Van Gelder Grant. [Source]

Caitriona Balfe Is Enjoying the Film’s ‘Wild Ride’ Through Awards Season

Making Kenneth Branagh’s film was like being ”released into this world of Ken’s imagination,“ the actress said. For the fun to keep going is an added delight.

The plaudits for “Belfast” seem to be endless. They started in September at the Toronto film festival, where Kenneth Branagh’s coming-of-age-movie set in 1969 won the People’s Choice Award. And they’ve kept pouring in ever since, in the form of nominations from dozens of prominent critics groups and guilds. Earlier this month, SAG nominated the “Belfast” cast for best ensemble — in addition to singling out Caitriona Balfe for her impassioned turn as Ma, a no-nonsense mother of two boys caught in the crossfire of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.

The sustained recognition Balfe has been enjoying has provided an unexpected second act to her “Belfast” experience (all while upping the Oscar buzz). “It’s been such a wild ride,” the actress told TheWrap. “When we started this journey a year ago, we were shooting during the pandemic. We never really knew what was going to become of this film. I think we were just all so focused on the fact we got to be working — and we got to be working on such an amazing project. That was the beauty of it at the time. The fact that it’s just kept going and is having all of these amazing accolades, it just feels really great.”

As Ma, Balfe struggles to hold together her tight-knit family while the Troubles engulf their once peaceful Belfast neighborhood. She cares for her young cinephile son Buddy (Jude Hill) and his older brother Will (Lewis McAskie), often with help from her delightful in-laws (Ciarán Hinds as Pop and Judi Dench as Granny) while her husband (Jamie Dornan) travels to England for work. The film is based on Branagh’s own early life in Northern Ireland, before he and his family moved to England when he was 9 to escape the brewing war. And this, of course, presented Balfe and her fellow actors with a significant responsibility.

‘Belfast’ Stars Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe Drew From Personal Experiences to Play a Married Couple Caught in a Tumultuous Time

“We’re going to have a what?” remembers Balfe of taking dance lessons with her onscreen husband. Plus, a look at how five other onscreen marriages are portrayed this awards season.

For Caitríona Balfe and Jamie Dornan, working on Focus Features’ Belfast was unlike anything they’d done before. The actress, who plays Ma in Kenneth Branagh’s film based on his childhood, felt drawn to the story when she saw that the script was focused on ordinary people instead of the politics and ideology of Northern Ireland — which she often sees in projects that come her way. For Dornan, who plays Balfe’s husband, Pa, Belfast was set in his hometown, and he was enticed by the truthful story of a family struggling with crippling decisions, grief and unconditional love.

Plus, they got to work with a cast that included Judi Dench, Ciarán Hinds and 11-year-old newcomer Jude Hill, whom Balfe and Dornan describe as a joy to work with. The duo reveal to THR how much freedom they had in portraying Branagh’s parents onscreen, explain that dancing was the most challenging part of the film, and remember how much rehearsal Dornan had for his “Everlasting Love” rendition — one of his two musical performances last year that took the internet by storm.

How did you get involved with the project?

CAITRíONA BALFE I think I was one of the last of the main actors to come on board. When I was first approached, I was told all of the lovely names that were already attached, and that was incredibly intimidating. I was sent the script, and it’s not that often you read something and you instantly … I felt like I knew Ma. I felt like I recognized my own mother in her but also many other women that I knew from Ireland. And also the subject matter. There have been so many films made about Northern Ireland that deal with the politics or the ideology, and of course, there’s a place for that, and they’re vastly important. There was nothing that I’d read before that focused on everyday people and with such compassion and with such empathy, so I was just blown away.

‘Outlander’ Season 6 Episode Titles Revealed Ahead of March Premiere

Outlander‘s Season 6 premiere is mere weeks away and Starz is giving viewers plenty to get excited about in the days leading up to the long-awaited return with newly-unveiled episode titles.

The official Outlander Twitter page revealed the titles of all eight installments that will air as part of the forthcoming season. The series continues the story of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), the beating heart at the center of this epic time-traversing romantic fantasy who attempt to protect and preserve the family and community they’ve built amid rising American Revolutionary tensions.

Set to arrive Sunday, March 6 on Starz, Season 6 will kick off with the premiere episode, titled, “Echoes.” Following in order of airdate is “Allegiance,” “Temperance,” “Hour of the Wolf,” “Give Me Liberty,” “The World Turned Upside Down,” “Sticks and Stones,” and “I Am Not Alone.”

Based on A Breath of Snow and Ashes, the sixth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling series, Season 6 follows Jamie, Claire, and the rest of the Frasers as they are forced to defend the home they’ve created for themselves. The latest chapter also brings in the Christies — Tom (Mark Lewis Jones), Allan (Alexander Vlahos), and Malva (Jessica Reynolds) — who are sure to shake things up.

As someone from Jamie’s past at Ardsmuir, Tom lends a new layer of tension to the Fraser’s Ridge mix when Outlander picks back up. In the meantime, stay tuned for more info about the upcoming season as the premiere approaches.

‘I got really lucky’: Caitríona Balfe, star of Belfast, on fame, family and fans

Caitríona Balfe is the luminous star of Kenneth Branagh’s Oscar-tipped Belfast. She talks about how modelling almost broke her, bonding on set with Judi Dench and her childhood during the Troubles

Caitríona Balfe can remember the exact moment she realised she was done with being a model. It was the mid-2000s and Balfe was 27-ish, she thinks. It had been almost a decade since she’d been scouted in a Dublin supermarket while rattling a tin for a multiple sclerosis charity. She had done pretty well, walking in runway shows for Louis Vuitton and Chanel, flitting between Paris, Milan and New York. Balfe and her friends called themselves “the blue-collar models” – they weren’t the 0.1% of supermodels, the household names, but the next rung down.

Now, though, Balfe was in Dallas, doing a well-paid but soulless shoot for a catalogue. After each set-up, a producer would ping a little bell to indicate they needed to fast-change to the next outfit. At her age, in that youth-fixated business, Balfe knew the clock was ticking. She’d handled just about as much blunt rejection as she could take for one lifetime. “The shows were fun and exciting, but with catalogues, you’re just standing there like a clothes horse – literally,” says Balfe. “And you know, ‘This is not what I want to be doing with my life.’

“Modelling does two things,” Balfe continues, with a wry laugh. “It gives you a really, really tough exterior and then a really broken interior. Everyone’s experience is different, but I know my confidence and my self-esteem when I finished was in the toilet. Being in that for so long can leave you pretty messed up for a little bit.”

It’s only a mini-spoiler to mention at this point that things eventually worked out rather well for Balfe, who is now 42. That’s why we’re sitting this morning in early December in a very flash London hotel, sharing a bottle of mineral water that costs only fractionally less than a decent bottle of wine. She is wearing an oversized Lauren Manoogian midi-dress and is the first person I’ve seen make a face mask look glamorous. We now know that, after stopping being a model, Balfe would go on to star in five seasons and counting of Outlander, the wildly popular TV franchise. Later this afternoon she will find out that she has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her luminous performance in Belfast, Kenneth Branagh’s new film. An Oscar nod is presumed (by critics and pretty much everyone else, except Balfe) to follow next month.
