    Speaking with The Independentthe actress shared, “I remember auditioning, and I thought to myself: ‘Oh that’s nice, I’ll never get this part but, y’know, I’ll give it my best. But I also really wanted this. I had that feeling in my stomach like, ‘I have to have this.’”

    The character that Joey plays, named Prince, can be best described as ‘one of the most unnerving of the bullet train’s assassins – she’s creepy, cut-throat and nearly pantomimically evil. Her ruthlessness – hidden just under the surface – is an intentional subversion of her assumed damsel-in-distress status.’ Joey said that’s where she felt connected with her killer character. “That’s my one connection to Prince. She’s really underestimated because of her appearance alone, and I think that’s the thing that I, personally, feel. Otherwise, she’s just a sociopath and a b***h.”

    King also shared some of Brad Pitt’s fun suggestions and commentaries from the shoot. Talking about the characters of Prince and Ladybug (played by Brad Pitt), King shared, “Brad always says the most fun roles you can play are the chump or the villain. He says he’s the chump, and I’m the villain.” King also said that Pitt embodies true leadership and is a very kind man, both on and off the set.

    Bullet Train‘ released in theatres on Friday, August 5.
