Starting her career at the age of 7, Joey King is one of the best actresses in Hollywood. Even though her roles were initially a bit smaller but as she grew she started to appear in more prominent and influential positions. 

There are some exceptional movies and TV shows credited to her name like The Conjuring, The Kissing Booth, Bullet Train, The Act, and many others. And now she has recently starred in Hulu’s dark action comedy, Princess. So if you are here looking to find out more about her works, here are the best Joey King movies and TV shows. 

The Princess, 2022

Now that we have already mentioned it, let’s start with this one only. The Princess is a period-action thriller set in medieval times that is ruled by the King, Ed, and the queen, Alex. They have two daughters, the elder one being the princess, Joey King, and Violet, the younger one. 

Now since the couple didn’t bear any sons who could carry on their kingdom and become the next King, the king decides to wed his elder daughter to the callous son of a diplomat, Julius. However, the princess isn’t ready to marry Julius. So to marry her forcefully, she is locked in the highest tower of the castle. But soon she finds out that her soon-to-be husband is trying to snatch the reign of her father which she has to protect now.

The Kissing Booth, 2018-2021

This one’s my favorite, a Netflix original movie franchise started in 2018 with a blast. Starring Joey King and Jacob Elordi in the lead role. The duo already sounds like fire, doesn’t it? The movie is about a high school girl, Elle, who has never even been kissed before and has a huge crush on the brother of her best friend. 

At the school festival, she finally finds herself kissing her crush. But this is quite against the rule according to the friendship pact with Lee, her best friend, that none of them can be found involved with each other’s family members. This is one of her best shows and that’s why we have listed it in Joey King Movies and TV Shows. The movie has two more sequels, released in 2020 and 2021, which I’m sure you are going to love.

The Act, 2019

The Act

And here’s my second favorite, The Act 2019 is certainly one of the best true-crime TV shows, after Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, of course. Joey King plays Gypsy Blanchard, the daughter of Dee Dee Blanchard. Dee Dee was accused of abusing her daughter for several years and even fabricating disabilities to make her appear like a child. 

The show portrays the toxic relationship between Gypsy and Dee Dee and how their relationship came to a tragic end after a while. The Act was the very first project in which Joey King received a nomination for an award and truly her performance was brilliant.
