Joey King Reveals What Helped Her Portray Gypsy in 'The Act'

Joey King looks stunning in a photo from her shoot with Bustle, online now.

Here’s what the 19-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On preparing to play Gypsy in The Act: “I would sometimes fall asleep listening to her interviews, so that I could get her voice really ingrained in my brain… I never wanted to make it look like I was making a joke of anything. It was super important to us to try and make it as real as possible.”

On her relationship with on-screen mother Patricia Arquette: “Her and I were in it together 100 percent. Every time we had these heavy scenes, we would just ask each other like, ‘Hey, was that OK?’ ‘What’d you think of that?’ or ‘What can we do to make it better together?’”

On finding privacy in the public eye: “I totally understand why people feel the sense that they got to know me as a character, so they want to know me completely as a human being as well. But there were times where I was like, ‘This is really hard, I wish my privacy was a little more respected now.’”
