Press/Video: Joey King’s No. 1 Piece of Advice for Child Actors (+ Their Co-Stars)

“In the Envelope: An Awards Podcast” features intimate interviews with award-winning actors and other creatives. Join host and Awards Editor Jack Smart for a front row seat to the industry’s most exciting awards races, and valuable acting and career advice from contenders! This episode is brought to you by HBO.

Joey King has been acting—and passionate about acting—since her first job as a kid: a Life cereal commercial. And when she received her Emmy nomination last year, Life sent her commemorative boxes of cereal with her face on them.

King has plenty of stories and tidbits of advice for “In the Envelope” listeners in a wide-ranging interview covering everything from how to cook snails to her adventures at the Golden Globe Awards the night before (during which she was clonked on the head with Patricia Arquette’s trophy). At only age 20, she’s already been nominated for Emmy, Screen Actors Guild, Critics’ Choice, and Golden Globe Awards, all as the real-life Gypsy Rose Blanchard in Hulu’s acclaimed limited series “The Act” opposite Arquette’s Dee Dee Blanchard. She had her breakout leading role as Ramona Quimby in “Ramona and Beezus,” and has co-starred with impressive veteran actors in “Crazy Stupid Love,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Kissing Booth,” and much more. And given her knowledge of and commitment to her craft, she’s only getting started.

Her best actorly advice? “Just have fun. Even with a character that’s so dark and deep, you think, ‘Fun? That’s a weird word.’ But as an actor, truly, it is so fun to dive into roles that are that deep and require that much concentration.” Listen to King’s hilarious and in-depth interview wherever you get your podcasts or at any of the links below.

In addition to this success, Paramount Players has also acquired King’s original pitch entitled The In Between which she will star in and also produce.

Press: Joey King Finds Her Award Nominations for ‘The Act’ Performance ‘Unexplainable’

‘The Kissing Booth’ actress has received nods from the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Golden Globe Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards for her portrayal of Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

Joey King is in disbelief over her multiple award nominations for her role as Gypsy Rose Blanchard in Hulu’s “The Act”.

The 20-year-old actress bagged nods at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards for her work on the show, and shared her thank yous on social media after the news was announced.

“This @sagawards nomination is so special to me,” she wrote after the SAG Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday, December 11. “Being acknowledged by my peers and people who love acting as much as I do… the feeling from that is unexplainable.”

The star added, “I love acting, I love actors, I love this show, and here is me with some actors who I cherish so deeply. I feel lucky to have had them by my side on this show and to have been by theirs.”

“To all my fellow SAG members, Thank you for this moment. Thank you thank you. It’s so meaningful.”

Joey’s latest post comes after she confessed to being “incredibly honoured” by her Critics’ Choice nomination, and revealed in a candid note how her mum broke the news she’d been shortlisted for the Golden Globes prize.

“My mother sent me a voice memo this morning that said ‘Good morning Emmy nominee, Critics Choice award nominee, and now Golden Globe nominee’,” she penned. “Hearing that I started to cry tears of absolute gratitude.”

The Golden Globes take place January 5, 2020, the Critics’ Choice Awards on January 12, and the SAG Awards are held January 19.
