Jaime King: Bio and Age

Jaime King is an actress and model well-known in the entertainment industry for her roles within the movie, television and modeling circles. She was born on the 23rd of April 1979 to Robert King and Nancy King who was a former beauty queen. The couple’s marital relationship fell apart in the year 1994, leading to their separation.

Jaime’s home town is Omaha, Nebraska, a midwestern state in America. The screen star has two younger siblings called Robert King, her brother and Barry King, her sister; as well as an older sister named Sandi King. The actress attended Westside High School but later dropped out in 1995 to become a full-time model in New York. She also did a home-study program organized by the University of Nebraska.

Jaime King began her modeling career at an Omaha-based modeling school known as Nancy Bounds’ Studios. She was discovered by a New York agent called Michael Flutie at a fashion graduation show and was later invited to New York City to start modeling professionally.

She eventually joined the company using the name Jaime but after finding out that another model being represented by the company bears Jaime as well, she decided to pick her childhood nickname James to avoid confusion. Her original name (Jaime) was given to her by her parents after a character, Jaime Sommers, in the science fiction action television series The Bionic Woman.

During her active years in the fashion industry, Jaime King did a lucrative advert for the Ohio-headquartered lifestyle retailer company – Abercrombie & Fitch. She also appeared on the pages of Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. Jaime got featured in fashion magazines like Seventeen, Mademoiselle, Vogue, and Allure, as well; and she equally did runway gigs for Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, and Chanel.

King also served as Revlon’s spokesmodel for their mega advert campaign in 2004 alongside popular model, actress, businesswoman, Eva Mendes, and actresses Halle Berry, and Julianne Moore.

She began her acting career in 1999, appearing in a variety of television series and films, some of which became her star-making roles.

Jaime’s husband is a multi-talented personality who wears the caps of a film director, author, producer, and editor. He is a native of Morristown, New Jersey, where he was born on March 16, 1976. In addition to his directorial stints in Hollywood, Newman has also appeared in a slew of movies and directed a handful of music videos for Taylor Swift. A staunch supporter of the Arsenal Football Club, he has a brother called Kevin Newman, who works as the character designer of America’s long-running animated comedy sitcom, The Simpsons.
