Hunter King is an American actress. She is best known for portraying the roles of Adriana Master on Hollywood Heights and Summer Newman on The Young and the Restless.

Hunter began her professional acting career by guest-starring in series such as Roswell, Hannah Montana and Workaholics. She starred as Adriana Masters in the Nick at Nite drama Hollywood Heights. It was there that she met The Young and the Restless executive producer Jill Farren-Phelps. "Jill brought me over there. I never auditioned for Y&R. As I was coming off the plane from Florida with a friend, Jill called and said, 'Do you want to come work on Y&R and play Summer?' I was like, 'Yeah.' She said, 'Okay. You start in two days.'" On October 15, 2012, she made her debut on the CBS Daytime soap opera as Summer Newman, replacing Lindsay Bushman. King's performance in the role earned her a nomination for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Daytime TV Series - Young Actress, losing out to her Y&R predecessor Samantha Bailey. King was also nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 2013, losing out to Kristen Alderson before winning the following year, beating out Alderson, Linsey Godfrey, Kim Matula and Kelly Missal.

King appeared as a guest model on two episodes of The Price Is Right during "Dream Car Week" in November 2013 and again for two more episodes in October 2014.

In 2015, King was cast in A Girl Like Her (originally named the The Bully Chronicles) as Avery Keller, and was cast on the CBS comedy series Life in Pieces as Clementine. Initially a recurring role in season one, she gets promoted to series regular for second season, leaving The Young and the Restless as regular cast member.
