Alysa King is a Canadian-born actor, singer, and live performer. During her early childhood years she was featured in several nationwide commercials and magazines, and later returned to the industry once she had completed her post-secondary education.
Upon completing high school she trained at Sheridan College and graduated their Theatre Arts program with honours. She then switched gears and continued on to Queen’s University in Kingston, where she received her Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Dramatic Arts and English Literature & Language, and a Bachelor of Education.
While at Queen's, she remained an avid member of the theatrical community and appeared in several Kingston productions, creating new Canadian roles with the Plastic People Theatre Company’s “Punchline” and Facebox Theatre’s “Framed”. She also had the privilege of performing in Canada's first student Shakespearean Repertory Company, Vagabond Theatre, and revamped the classic play "Romeo and Juliet", by playing Romeo as a female lead.
Upon graduating, Alysa returned to film and television, and in 2014 she starred in the award-winning genre film "Berkshire County" directed by Audrey Cummings. Praised for her intense and compelling portrayal of Kylie Winters, her performance earned her two "Best Actress" awards from festivals world-wide and the film screened on 5 continents to rave reviews. It has a national theatrical run in Canada at Landmark Cinemas and was in the top 5 earning Canadian films for several weeks during its screening window.
Most recently, Alysa was a recurring character on the hit TV series Slasher, a co-production of Shaftesbury Films and Super Channel starring Jurassic World’s Katie McGrath, which aired on NBC Universal's 'Chiller' channel in 2016 to excellent reviews and great ratings. She also plays the lead role in Black Fawn Distribution’s latest film "Bed of the Dead", which swept the 2016 festival circuit and was selected to play at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival, the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, and Spain’s famed Sitges Film Festival (the only academy award qualifying genre festival in the world).
