Reina King, a presently renowned American TV actress, was born on 11th April in the year 1975. She drew the first breath in Los Angeles, California, where the future actress was born in the family of Gloria and Thomas King. Her parents worked as a teacher of special education and an electrician respectively. She started to pursue the career of acting in the very childhood, when she studied it at a special art school. Sadly, though, the parents of Reina King filed for divorce in 1979. Reina King is a younger sister of her more famous older sister with a very similar name, Regina King.


Unfortunately, there is no information about the high school or college education of Reina King. There is also nothing known about her achievements in studying. However, it is known for sure that, while studying at a high school or a college, Reina King has been engaged in acting activities and took part in a large number of plays.

Career Experience

The career of Reina King began in the middle of the 1980s, when she appeared first time (in the year 1985) in a popular sitcom under the title “What’s Happening Now” that appears to be a sequel to another sitcom named “What’s Happening”, which was a favored one in the 1970s. Then, her career of an actress progressed and she was invited to play a role in the “Maid to Order” (1987) movie. It was the breakthrough of hers, but it had been noticeably successful in any case. Thus, the actress was invited to star in the “Scrooged” (1988), which was later nominated for Oscar. In that film, she played a role of Lanell Cooley, thus being, according to the script, the elder daughter of Alfre Woodard, a renowned actress.

In the same year, she played a role in one of the episodes of the “227” sitcom. In that sitcom, Regina King, her sister, played one of the major roles. Two years later, the hot actress played a role of Rhonda in the movie under the title “To Sleep with Anger” (1990), where also starred Mary Alice. Furthermore, she received several roles in other TV series and movies. In particular, she played briefly in “A Hollow Place” (1998), where she starred as the Corliss Young’s mother. She also starred in a reality show with Donald Trump in 2007. Indeed, the career of Reina King is not as impressive as the career of her more renowned sister, but pretty outstanding too. This can be proved by Reina King’s net worth which is estimated at the level of a whopping $10 million!

Personal life

Reina King is not the type of a person who likes to speak out a lot about her private life. It is known, however, that since 1997 Reina King had been married to Ian Alexander, Sr. Reina King gave a birth to their mutual son, named Ian Alexander, Jr., though the date of his birth remains unrevealed. However, the couple filed for divorce ten years later, in 2007. For now, nothing is known about her current and past boyfriends so far. In addition, Reina King is present on social media, like Facebook and Twitter naturally. However, she is one of the rare celebrities who have a blog on Tumblr. She is also known for her excellent style to dress that anyone can notice on the pictures with her.
