Joey King Says She Could Not Have Done 'The Act' Without Calum Worthy

Joey King snaps a photo with The Act co-star Calum Worthy while making an appearance together at the Build Series on Thursday afternoon (March 14) in New York City.

During the interview, the 19-year-old actress was asked about the emotional toll it took to play Gypsy Blanchard.

“Mentally, it was draining. I felt so vulnerable every day when I would step on set. I genuinely could not have done it without Calum. I relied on him so much when it came to those tense emotional scenes. I knew he would be there for me and I hope he knew I would always be there for him,” Joey said. “It was a lot, but in saying that, it was one of the most special projects I’ve ever worked on, experience-wise.”

Calum added, “It was incredible seeing her transform because as soon as she was on set as Gypsy, it was like I was talking to Gypsy. It was amazing. Of course, at lunch [she] was her bubbly self, cracking jokes and making the crew laugh… it made the crew focus and feel like we were making something cool.”

The Act begins streaming on Hulu on March 20.

FYI: Joey is wearing a Vivetta dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Melinda Maria ear cuffs, EF Collection earrings, and Dana Rebecca rings.
