Profile Bio Text
Jaime King (born April 23, 1979) is an American film actress and model. In her modeling career and early film roles, she went by the names Jamie King and most especially James King, which was a childhood nickname given to King by her parents, because her agency already represented another Jaime — the older, then-more famous model Jaime Rishar. King, because of the latter name, is sometimes referred to as the "Model with a man`s name".
King had a successful modeling career and was considered "One of the world`s top fashion models", appearing in Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Harper`s Bazaar. Afterwards, King began taking small film roles, her first large endeavor being the big-budget Pearl Harbor (2001), and later first starring role in Bulletproof Monk (2003). She has gone on to appear as a lead in various other films, and gained more notoriety after Sin City (2005), in which she will reprise her role for the sequel Sin City 2 (2009).
