Joey King’s comments on The In Between
Joey King is no stranger to the spotlight, appearing in movies and TV shows since she was seven years old.
However, King explained to Collider how The In Between was a different project for her, saying:
“I was with this project from the very beginning, even before the script was written. So, for example, I gave a lot of notes on each draft of the script, which was so exciting and revealing because I I feel like I learned how to give proper marks and I also thought, “Wow, it’s really fun to be able to notice things and be able to say something and have it taken seriously.
The In Between is available to stream now on Netflix.
