Beatrice King is a talented young actress who has quickly become one of Canada's rising stars.
Working with Hugh Jackman on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Cory Monteith on Sisters & Brothers and Joseph Gordon- Levitt on 50/50, Beatrice has launched onto the big screen with a bang. A small-town girl from Beaumont Alberta, Beatrice became a disciplined performer and artist at a young age. Excelling in ballet, piano and competitive figure skating, Beatrice is thankful for the drive instilled in her by her supportive Swiss Father and Chinese/Spanish Mother.
Her parent's support for her passion was a natural extension of their particular interests. Both machinists who met through their profession, Beatrice's parents also share the love of capturing wildlife on camera and maintaining beehives on their family's acreage. She also attributes her attention to detail and creative aptitude to her Mother's fine needlework and her Grandmother's traditional Chinese Painting.
Graduating with Distinctive Honors and her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature at the University of Alberta, Beatrice went on to complete a Full-time program at the Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts for Film and Television. Training with Larry Moss, Leonardo DiCaprio and Hilary Swank's Acting Coach, has given Beatrice a distinctive edge to reach new heights and perfect her craft.
In February of 2013, Beatrice made her way to Los Angeles along with her O1-Visa to continue her journey. Splitting her time between Vancouver & Los Angeles, Beatrice is a graduate of the National Voice Intensive, and the Upright Citizens Brigade in LA (an improvisational sketch comedy group with members including Amy Poehler). She also studies at the Groundlings in Los Angeles.
Some of her other credits include FOX's Almost Human, CW's Supernatural and USA's Psych. Recently, she finished shooting a feature film in Hong Kong, Inflection.
Beatrice has also ventured into writing & producing. Along with Robinder Uppal and James Kot, 'No Skydivers Productions' was born, a boutique production company with a focus on showcasing Canadian talent. 'A Tremendous Heist', written and produced by Beatrice King and James Kot, will be making it's debut at the Oregon Independent Film Festival as part of the Comedy Awards Program. Beatrice has been awarded 'Best Actress in a Short' at the Oregon Independent Film Festival for her performance.
When Beatrice isn't performing, you can find her at Platform Vancouver where she enjoys instructing aspiring young Actors with McIlroy & Associates, or writing avidly in one of her favorite eclectic coffee shops. She also enjoys True Detective, Homeland and listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson on Cosmos.
Currently, she is hopelessly in love with French Bulldogs, anything Sci-Fi, and delving into the world of Steam Punk Art.
