[ # ] Joey King developed a blood condition while filming The Conjuring
August 13th, 2020 under Howard Stern, Joey King


Back when Joey King was 12 years old, she made a little horror movie called The Conjuring. Something happened to her while she was making the film that was more of a horror than the feature itself.

The actress told Howard Stern the other day, that when Lili Taylor’s character started to develop bruising, so did King in real life. She would find bruises in odd places like her chest and stomach. The makeup people thought she was stealing their bruising makeup and tried to remove them to no avail.

Eventually, she went to the doctor, and they thought she might have Leukemia. Thankfully, she didn’t, but she wound up having something called Immune thrombocytopenia, which is a low platelet count. She had to go to the hospital twice a day, every day, to check her platelet levels and take iron pills to build it back up.

King never had a problem before filming the 2013 scary movie, and it went away as soon as she got home. In fact, she says she never had it again. Spooky.

Do you think The Conjuring was cursed?
