Graeme Thomas King is a British actor. He currently stars as Jeremy Beckett in the Freeform series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.

Life and Career

At the age of thirteen, he had an issue with his kidney and the injured or infected kidney had to be removed.

He became an actor by chance, after bumping into a young filmmaker on a bus. This interaction led him to audition for the filmmaker's short film which, in turn, kick-started his career. After the short film, he applied to William Esper Studio, an acting school in New York, and studied there for two years. After drama school, he returned to London and acted in No More Lonely People and The Widow, the latter which was directed by Neil Jordan. Graeme now resides in LA but frequently travels for work.

In 2018, it was announced Graeme would be playing Jeremy Beckett, a "very intelligent scientist as Hotchkiss Industries", in the Freeform series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. He is acting alongside Pretty Little Liars alums Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish, as well as newcomers Sofia Carson, Sydney Park, Eli Brown, and Kelly Rutherford.

Trivia

  • When thinking about his character, Graeme wanted to give Jeremy a Hugh Grant in "Notting Hill" vibe.
  • He had never seen Pretty Little Liars prior to being cast in The Perfectionists.
  • The Perfectionists is Graeme's first television series appearance.
  • The night before he filmed his audition for Jeremy, Graeme was in a bar with an American friend who informed him of Pretty Little Liars. Prior to this, Graeme had never heard of the series but often confused it with "Big Little Lies. The next day, he filmed his audition for the series and months later, he was asked to screen test for Warner Bros.
  • In order to film Season 1, he had to get his Visa approved so that he could fly from Vancouver to Portland. It was incredibly difficult, to the point where Freeform had another actor lined up to play Jeremy.
  • He studied and later worked in finance before being approached on a bus to be an actor in a short film.
