Hunter Hailey King (born October 19, 1993)[citation needed] is an American actress. She is known for the roles of Adriana Masters on Hollywood Heights and Summer Newman on The Young and the Restless.

Personal life[edit]

King is the sister of fellow actresses Kelli King and Joey King.[citation needed] Her grandmother is Elaine Farrar. At a young age, King acted in a theater in Agoura Hills, California.[1]

Career[edit]

King began her professional acting career by guest starring in series such as Roswell, Hannah Montana and Workaholics.[1] She starred as Adriana Masters in the Nick at Nite drama Hollywood Heights. It was there that she met The Young and the Restless executive producer Jill Farren-Phelps.[1] "Jill brought me over there. I never auditioned for Y&R. As I was coming off the plane from Florida with a friend, Jill called and said, 'Do you want to come work on Y&R and play Summer?' I was like, 'Yeah.' She said, 'Okay. You start in two days.'"[1]

On October 15, 2012, she made her debut on the CBS Daytime soap opera as Summer Newman, replacing Lindsay Bushman.[2][3] She is credited as Hunter King. King's performance in the role earned her an nomination for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Daytime TV Series - Young Actress, losing out to her Y&R predecessor Samantha Bailey.[4] King was also nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 2013, losing out to Kristen Alderson before winning the following year, beating out Alderson, Linsey Godfrey, Kim Matula and Kelly Missal.[5][6]

King appeared as a guest model on two episodes of The Price Is Right during "Dream Car Week" in November 2013 and again for two more episodes in October 2014.[7][8]

Controversy[edit]

In 2013, King accused her Y&R co-star Michael Muhney of groping her.[9][10][11][12] It was reported that King complained that Muhney fondled her breasts on two occasions, both of which were unsolicited and unwanted advances.[11][12] King told producers she would go to the police and file a report against Muhney if he was not fired from the show.[12] Muhney was fired on December 17, 2013.[12][13][14][15]
