HUNTER KING BIOGRAPHY: MOVIES AND TV SHOWS
King’s first film appearance was in 2001 in the Steven Spielberg film A.I. Artificial Intelligence as Amanda. She made her television debut in the same year in Roswell. King continued to act in several television series from 2002 to 2011, often appearing in only one or two episodes in each series.
King landed her first major role in 2012 playing Adriana Masters in Hollywood Heights. Her next notable role came in the form of the character Summer Newman on The Young and the Restless, whom she portrayed from 2012 to 2020 for a total of 608 episodes. King also portrayed Clementine Hughes on Life in Pieces from 2015 to 2019. In 2015, King played bully Avery Keller in the documentary-style drama film, A Girl Like Her.
King is set to star in Prospect, which is in the pre-production phase.
King sat down to talk with uInterview about A Girl Like Her (2015) and her role as Avery Keller, a teenager who takes bullying to the extreme. “My character Avery Keller is your typical popular girl in high school… but as you start to peel back the layers, you find out that there’s a lot more to my character Avery,” King said.
King noted that the movie was filmed in a documentary-style and the cast utilized equipment like GoPro cameras and handheld video cameras, which was different from her previous filming experiences.
King told uInterview that she was bullied herself. “I was bullied myself a little bit in high school, so I took this role very seriously,” King said. “It really means a lot to me, this film, because I’m hoping to be able to talk to a lot of girls that are being bullied, and give them hope and tell them to learn from the situation…” King hoped that the film could show young girls the actions they should take if they’re being bullied and emphasized the importance of figuring out underlying reasons for why bullies act the way that they do so that the bullying can be put to an end.
King told uInterview that her experiences with bullying served as inspiration for playing her role in A Girl Like Her. She recounted, “I was on the cheerleading squad and the whole varsity football team had a really mean nickname for me that was inappropriate and really rude, and I would walk back to the bus after an away game and they would all just start shouting it at me. Being 16, 17, the last thing you want is a varsity football team making up mean nicknames about you. You never forget those types of things, and I used that as inspiration for the film.”
