Hunter Hailey King (born October 19, 1993) 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.[7]

Controversy[edit]

In 2013, King accused her Y&R co-star Michael Muhney of groping her.[8][9][10][11] It was reported that King complained that Muhney fondled her breasts on two occasions, both of which were unsolicited and unwanted advances.[10][11] King told producers she would go to the police and file a report against Muhney if he was not fired from the show.[11] Muhney was fired on December 17, 2013.[11][12][13][14]
