When Joey King first arrived on the “Bullet Train” set, she reportedly felt intimidated. The film’s protagonist, Brad Pitt, quickly made her feel at ease.
The “Kissing Booth” actress, 22, co-stars with Pitt in the 2022 action-comedY. Despite having worked in movies since she was four years old, she felt as though she was stepping onto a film set for the first time when working with the Hollywood icon.
Brad Pitt appears to be playing assassin Ladybug in the movie. Ladybug wants to end her life but is persuaded to do so by his handler Maria Beetle (Sandra Bullock). They wanted to retrieve a briefcase from a bullet train travelling from Tokyo to Kyoto. He and other assassins learn on the train that their goals are all related.
Joey King said “I’ve been acting for almost 19 years now, which is actually insane. But I feel like this movie, stepping onto this set, I felt like I had just touched down in Los Angeles and it was my first movie. I felt so fish out of water, imposter syndrome, I was like, ‘What am I doing here? I don’t deserve to be here’.”
Brad Pitt instantly put her at ease and she was “so comfortable” in his company
She continued: “But working on this movie with the entire cast and of course Brad, I mean he’s f****** Brad Pitt at the end of the day, we love Brad Pitt, it was truly an honour, not just because they are so talented and have such cool careers, but because they’re the coolest humans to work with.
“Brad became someone that I was so comfortable with and feel so lucky that I was able to share this time with, I just absolutely adore him.”
King loved that her character of The Prince was “gender-swapped”.
She said: “First of all, I loved my character, everything how she was written, how villainous she was, but then also that her name is so strong and powerful. Like you said, they gender-swapped me, but they kept her name as The Prince. It made me so happy because I was like, ‘This name feels like the perfect way for me to build the character around her because it made me feel so strong and powerful’. I knew who I wanted her to be based on how strong I feel when I say, ‘I’m the Prince’.”
