Upshur County native cast in horror-thriller ‘Bloodline Killer’ — and you can stream it now from your couch

BUCKHANNON – One of Upshur County’s own can now say she’s shared the stage – or the screen, to be precise – with Tyrese Gibson of the “Fast and The Furious” franchise fame.

Not to mention Taryn Manning, who played the memorably cantankerous character “Pennsatucky” from the award-winning comedic drama television series, “Orange is the New Black.”

A Buckhannon-Upshur High School graduate, King studied theatre at High Point University and improvisation at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. She plays Officer Cindi Hogan in “Bloodline Killer,” alongside Gibson, Manning, Bruce Dern and Shawnee Smith. The film follows a woman named Moira Cole (Smith) after Cole’s family is murdered.

The International Movie Database describes “Bloodline Killer” as “a terrifying horror-thriller that follows Moira Cole, who endeavors to rebuild her life after the murder of her family at the hands of her deranged, obsessed cousin.

King’s other acting credits include “Low Notes” (2017)  and “Charlie” (2017). You can rent or buy “Bloodline Killer,” which is now streaming on Prime Video and Apple TV.

Jennifer is the daughter of Susan and Sky King of Buckhannon and the sister of William King.
