Biography

While filming her role as the animated China Girl in "Oz the Great and Powerful" (2013), Joey King spent most of the time reading lines from a phone-booth-sized box while her co-stars performed opposite an elaborate marionette puppet. Thankfully, most of King's other roles have been face-to-face with her big-name co-stars. Throughout her career, King's portrayed everything from the title young adventurer in "Ramona and Beezus" (2010) to an ostracized young girl in the music video for Taylor Swift's "Mean" (2011). King began acting when most other children were headed to preschool, and briefly appeared on the Disney series "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (2005-08), before being cast in the short film "Grace" (2006). The L.A. native provided the voice of the typically Seussian character of Katie, a strange yellow fur ball, in 2008's "Horton Hears a Who!" before being chosen to portray Beverly Cleary's beloved Ramona Quimby (age 8). King, whose older sisters Kelli and Haley are also actresses, portrayed a young Talia al Ghul in the blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012), and later went on to play Channing Tatum's daughter in the explosion-filled "White House Down" (2013). As polished and talented as actresses twice her age, Joey King has risen to become one of Hollywood's rising stars.
