Hi guys. I'm Paige King. I grew up in Palm Springs, CA. I started dancing at 5, and acting when I was 8. Palm Springs was an awesome place to grow up, I got to be Clara in the Nutcracker Suite, Mirales in A Chorus Line and Mrs. Clackett in Noises Off, and still have time to screw around with my friends making dumb videos in the desert. I was such a spazz. It was a nice place to be a spazz.
I studied writing at USC with my hero, T.C. Boyle, and I started a masters in writing, but I never finished because at the ripe old age of 22, I met professional surfer, photographer, and MTV host, Peter King and I got married. We had one kid, Bunker King, who can now be found at Reed College, posting on Reddit reddit.com/r/sheildsynopsis and taking improv classes at Comedy Sportz, Portland.
I got my first professional acting gig in 2000, it was a radio commercial for the show Angel. I said (In a really sex-ed up voice) "David Boreanaz wears a lot of leather." Show biz! In 2014, I became a member of the Groundlings Sunday Company and got to play Tick Tock's Squeeze in Gary Ross's "Seabiscuit." That's when I became besties with William H. Macy. (Call me William H!) But clearly there was something magic about how I said, "David Boreanaz" because since that fateful day, I have literally voiced thousands of commercials and television promos. I do some video games too (Infamous, Mass Effect 3, Terra) and sometimes even cartoons. (Family Guy, American Dad!)
In 2013, I somehow convinced my professional comedy writer friends to work for free. They wrote my one-woman show, "My Friends Wrote me a Show." I love that show, it's really funny. 2014 was fantastic, I was in Amy Berg's, "Every Secret Thing," opposite Dakota Fanning and more importantly, I became an Air Guitar champion. (Western Regional Champion) My air guitar name is Kingslayer. I play licks from Lionel Richie songs. Bunker competes too. He's Air-O-Dynamic. He's gonna be a contender.
Now I'm working on something entirely new for me. It's a web series inspired by how sad I am that Bunker's gone off to college. So sad that I... (spoiler alert) follow him to college. It's called Step Up 40. Bunker's my costar! I get to dance in it! I'm writing again! Which would make T.C. Boyle proud. Check out the trailer up top, and stay tuned for more to come soon!
