Joey King has certainly been busy since wrapping up The Kissing Booth trilogy on Netflix. For one thing, the Emmy-nominated actress has joined the star-studded cast of the new action flick Bullet Train. In the movie, King plays an assassin who goes up against the likes of Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock. Not to mention, there are other ruthless assassins in the story, played by actors Brian Tyree Henry and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

So far, Bullet Train has received some pretty good reviews and King certainly holds her own in the film’s various action scenes. As it turns out though, the movie wasn’t the most physically intense film the actress has ever worked on so far.

  Watch: Blue Jays’ Lourdes Gurriel goes viral for swim move to avoid tag The Toronto Blue Jays slugger Gurriel went viral for a gravity-defying move to avoid getting picked off at first base during the fourth inning. Gurriel was a sitting duck when Red Sox starter Brayan Bello caught him off-guard with a pickoff throw … until he wasn’t.Like something out of a Keanu Reeves movie, Gurriel used an acrobatic swim manuever to (1) get around Boston first baseman Bobby Dalbec’s initial tag and (2) touch first base before Dalbec could apply another tag. Thus, Gurriel was ruled safe despite the throw from Bello beating him by a country mile. Lourdes Gurriel Jr.

Joey King Loved Her ‘Badass’ Role On Bullet Train

Bullet Train is the biggest film that King has ever worked on to date and in the beginning, the actress couldn’t believe that she was working on the film herself, not to mention landing the role of an assassin.

Bullet Train is a truly larger-than life film that I can’t believe I got to be a part of. I’ve been acting for a long time, but I had a zoom-out Hollywood moment of ‘Wow, this is insane. I’m in an action film directed by David Leitch [Atomic Blonde, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw] with Brad Pitt,’” the actress admitted.

“And I love my character, Prince. She’s so badass and so crazy.”

Report: White Sox, Yankees showing interest in Pirates' Jose Quintana

  Report: White Sox, Yankees showing interest in Pirates' Jose Quintana The White Sox and Yankees are among the clubs expressing interest in Pirates starter José Quintana.Chicago is plenty familiar with Quintana, of course. The Colombian-born hurler began his big league career with the South Siders and spent essentially all of his prime seasons there. One of the sport’s best pitchers at his peak, Quintana worked 200+ innings with an ERA of 3.51 or lower each season from 2013-16. The Sox flipped him across town in a 2017 blockbuster that netted them Dylan Cease and Eloy Jiménez from the Cubs.

For her Bullet Train scenes, King also required some specific training, which didn’t mind. “I learned a lot about guns and just being a super cool assassin lady,” she said. “I’ve always had a bit of action star in my bones.”

As dark as the film’s story gets though, it seems that the movie didn’t really demand much of King physically as much as another film she recently worked on.

This Movie Was More Physically Demanding Than Bullet Train For Joey King

Bullet Train may have a lot of extensive fight scenes but for King, nothing was more challenging than the Hulu film she also recently worked on. “The Princess is the hardest job I’ve ever done physically,” the actress revealed. “I did months and months of training.” And while she had to train with guns for Bullet Train, King had to master swordsmanship for this movie.

“I fell in love with sword fighting. I’m left-handed, and I became quite good with a sword with my right hand,” she explained. “My stunt doubles trained me hard. These women helped me become the best fighter I could be.”

In the movie, King plays the titular character, a princess who gets locked away in a tower after she refuses to marry her sociopath suitor (Dominic Cooper). And when he tries to take her father’s throne, it’s up to her to save the kingdom and her entire family

Joey King Did A Lot Of The Stunts In The Princess Herself

At first, King was hesitant to take on the role. At that time, the actress had just finished wrist surgery, and she also had a bad hip. Not to mention, it wasn’t anything like she had ever done before.

“It scared me a little bit,” King confessed. “I didn't have the training and haven't done fight sequences.” In the end, however, the actress agreed to do the movie.

Even more impressive, King was determined to do as many of her stunts as possible even if she had a stunt team on standby. “She did it even better than the stunt person,” Le-Van Kiet revealed.

According to Jon Heyman of the MLB Network and New York Post, the Yankees may be looking to move Gallo ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, but are having issues finding a suitor.

As for King, she credits the film’s crew for helping her prepare for her fight scenes as well as possible. “They all lifted me up and made me feel like I could do it,” she said. And with her newfound confidence, the actress trained as hard as possible, it didn’t even matter if she would get hurt at times.

“You can’t be afraid of it or anticipate it — you have to go full throttle,” King explained. “You’re learning how to not be scared.”

When filming got underway, King was certainly in fighting form, which her co-star Veronica Ngo, really appreciated since they shared some fight scenes together. “It’s better and easier for me to fight with a stunt person because they can take a lot and I can unleash on them. Fighting with another actress gives me stress, but Joey came in ready to go,” she said of her co-star. “I’m super proud of how we pulled it out. The scene is amazing.”

Clearly, Joey has earned every bit of her $3M net worth. Aside from dealing with sword fighting, King also had to master an intense fighting sequence that takes place on a staircase. Right before they shot it, the actress practiced on a replica of the staircase on a separate set with her stunt team.

“Every day there was a little bit of staircase training because it was such a huge sequence,” King explained. In the end, the actress nailed it.

King’s The Princess is now streaming on Hulu. Meanwhile, it also seems that the actress is ready to sign up for another action movie. “I would be happy to get my hands dirty [again],” King said.

A few small changes to the Night King's character and motivation in Game of Thrones could have made the conclusion of his story much more satisfying.Throughout Game of Thrones, the Night King was portrayed less as a character and more as a force of nature. This was an intimidating place for the evil King to start but leaves little opportunity for growth. There is no reason the Night King could not have evolved into a more realized, emotional villain. The groundwork was laid down by the writers of the show in earlier seasons; all that was needed was to explore those ideas.
