Joey King stars as Charlie, Alex's (Amanda Peet) 10-year-old daughter who seems wiser than her years, on NBC's comedy "Bent."
Born and raised in Los Angeles, King began her career at age four when she booked several national commercials for brands including AT&T, Eggo, Life Cereal and McDonalds. King was soon making the television show rounds, and by the age of six had appeared on "CSI," "Entourage" and "Medium."
King recently wrapped filming on Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" and is currently in production on the 3D fantasy picture "Oz: The Great and Powerful," helmed by Sam Raimi, in which she will portray the role of China Girl. Other film credits include "Crazy, Stupid, Love," the sci-fi action film "Battle Los Angeles" directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and as Ramona Quimby in the family movie "Ramona & Beezus," sharing the screen with Selena Gomez.
In addition to her work in front of the camera, King has lent her vocal talents to the hit animated feature films "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!" and "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs."
When she's not acting, King enjoys spending time with family and taking care of her pets, including a pig she received from Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
