Born Georgette Barry in Paris, France, on February 1, 1919, actress Andrea King was raised by her dancer mother in New York and Florida. She began her acting career in the early 1930s on Broadway under the name Georgette McKee in the shows Growing Pains and Fly Away Home. Her first film was the RKO drama The Ramparts We Watch (1940), which was shot in Connecticut. After a few bit roles, she signed a contract with Warner Bros. when her film career took off. Warner Bros. put King in several wartime short subjects, such as Proudly We Serve (1944), before casting her in supporting roles in such films as The Very Thought of You (1944; with Dennis Morgan and Eleanor Parker). In the late 1940s, she moved on to bigger roles at Universal-International Studios and other studioes where she was often cast as a femme fatale in film noir titles, including I Was a Shoplifter (1950; with Scott Brady) and Dial 1119 (1950; with Marshall Thompson). In the early 1950s, she moved away from films and began making many television appearances on such programs as Fireside Theatre, Cheyenne, and Perry Mason. King also acted in several science fiction and horror films, such as The Beast with Five Fingers (1946; with Robert Alda and Peter Lorre), Red Planet Mars (1952; with Peter Graves), and House of the Black Death (1965; with Lon Chaney Jr. and John Carradine). Andrea King's last starring role in a film was the low-budget western Outlaw Queen (1957; with Harry James and Robert Clarke), although she sporadically appeared in supporting roles in films and television through the early 1990s. After the death of her husband, Nat Willis, in 1970, her output further decreased. Some of her later films include Blackenstein (1973; with John Hart) and The Linguini Incident (1991; with Rosanna Arquette and David Bowie). Sadly, Andrea King passed away on April 22, 2003, at the age of 84. She was survived by her daughter, Deborah, and three grandchildren.
