Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter, one of the biggest female streamers and gaming creators in the world, has signed with talent agency WME for representation. She most recently was repped by UTA.

After starting out on Twitch, she signed an exclusive gaming livestream pact with YouTube in 2020. Valkyrae has been one of the fastest-growing streamers in the world and YouTube’s most-watched female streamer over the past three years.

Valkyrae is known for streaming games “Among Us,” “Fortnite” and “Valorant,” among others. She has more than 13.5 million followers in total across her social-media channels, including 4 million for her main YouTube channel. Valkyrae’s live streams have featured the likes of Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

In addition, Valkyrae is a co-owner of esports group 100 Thieves, making her the only female co-owner of a major gaming organization. Her internet handle is a reference to the Valkyries of Norse myth (the maidens of Odin who choose the heroes to be slain in battle and guide them to Valhalla).

She’s also crossed over into TV and film: Valkyrae was a voice actor in “Sonic Prime,” the Sonic the Hedgehog series for Netflix last year, and will next appear in action comedy “The Family Plan” alongside Mark Wahlberg for Apple TV+ (premiering Dec. 15). She also starred in Machine Gun Kelly’s music video for “DayWalker” and Bella Poarch’s music video for single “Build a Bitch.”

Earlier this year, Valkyrae became one of the first female streamers featured in print, with a seven-page spread in Vogue Philippines. The native of Washington State once worked at GameStop before turning to livestreaming full time.
