The Unexpected Guest Who Visited Hunter King On The Set Of Hallmark's Hidden Gems

Hunter King is one of the Hallmark Channel's most promising young stars. The actor has shown off her skills in several projects for the network, but one of her most memorable has been the movie "Hidden Gems." In the film, King portrays the role of Addie, a young woman who loses her grandmother's ring in the waters of Hawaii just before her sister's wedding day. Addie then hires a diver named Jack to help her search for the important piece of jewelry. Of course, Jack and Addie butt heads as they explore the waters, but Addie eventually rekindles her love of the ocean when Jack shows her all of the stunning treasures that Hawaii has to offer.

After landing the role, King gushed over the storyline of the movie, revealing that she was thrilled to be part of the project. "It was everything you could hope a Hallmark movie would be and more," she said during the Hallmark Happenings podcast. "They did a really good job, and reading it, even the whole time before I even got to Hawaii, just reading the script I was like, 'Oh my god, and then what happens?' The whole time it was just, I was on the edge of my seat reading it, so I'm excited for the viewers," she added.

To make the experience even more exciting for King, she revealed that the cast had an A-list star drop by for a visit as they were filming the movie.

King got a visit from Dwayne Johnson while filming Hidden Gems

During an interview with Just Jared, Hunter King opened up about what it was like to film "Hidden Gems" in Hawaii. She also admitted that she was surprised on set by fan-favorite actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. King revealed that she and her co-star Beau Mirchoff were filming on set when they were stunned to see the WWE wrestler-turned-action star standing before them after joking around with some of the movie's props.

"So Beau and I were in the middle of filming a scene where our characters had just gotten done with a dive. We had our wet suits halfway pulled down with our swimsuits underneath so Beau jokingly grabbed some of the air tanks from the scuba gear and started curling them to get a bicep "pump". Next thing we know Beau spots Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson watching us from the beach!" she stated.

Johnson eventually came over to introduce himself, and King says she and her co-star had a funny encounter with him. "He came over to say hello and told Beau he saw him using the scuba gear to get a pump and he was 'taking notes.' It was so funny and such a surprise to see him watching us on set," King confessed. Of course, King likely wasn't too star-struck, as she's worked with some big names throughout her young career.

Hunter King has a bright future with Hallmark

During her career, Hunter King has appeared in several films and TV shows. She's landed roles in films such as "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" with big names like Jude Law and William Hurt. She's appeared in "Hannah Montana" with Miley Cyrus, and in "Life in Pieces" with the likes of Colin Hanks and James Brolin. However, she's best known for her role as Summer Newman on the long-running soap opera "The Young and the Restless," as well as her work with Hallmark.

Recently, King signed a multi-picture deal with Hallmark, ensuring that fans would see even more of her on the network in the future. Since "Hidden Gems" was a hit, the actor says she'd love to make a sequel to the movie in the future. "I think a sequel would be so fun! Not only did I love working with everyone, but I think story-wise it would be really nice to see what happens next for the characters. Between Addie's summer program to seeing if Jack takes his sailing trip around the world, I think there's a lot of the story the audience would have fun watching more of!" Hunter told Just Jared.

Maybe King could even get Dwayne Johnson to make a cameo in a future "Hidden Gems" sequel.
