Teen Vogue: As a representative of the young Hollywood, what parts of you as a performer are you hoping to see more in Hollywood in general?
Joey King: I'm a great person. I love getting to know people before making judgments, knowing their story. I find that when I work a lot on sets, I meet the most interesting people. Not just people who are producers, directors or actors. The crew is such a vital part in making anything happen, and therefore truly knowing those people and respecting these people is a huge thing that I want to see more. I want to see people respecting others around them, because we all have work to do and every job is as important as the next.
TVSo far, what was the biggest challenge to show you in Hollywood?
JK: I just want to show people that what I do is so important to me, it does not matter what kind of role it is. I want to show people that I can play any kind of role. That I can take anything and in fact just go to 110%. The biggest challenge in proving myself is being able to get those roles and certain characters that really manage to show the range I have and I want to show.
TV: Your social media follow more increases later The cabin of kisses. What did you learn about having a huge platform of over 8 million followers on Instagram?
JK: I feel very fortunate to be able to have a voice that people care about listening to, but it's a big responsibility, you know? I want to set a good example for people, but at the same time I just want to show them a good time, so I try to do a little bit of both. Mainly I just try to be myself, and as a cliché and stupid as it seems, I feel like it's the most important thing, because I want people to be themselves in real life or on their Instagram platforms or anywhere.
