King was first known for playing Danny Roberts on the soap opera Loving (later re-titled The City).The next year, he appeared as the major male leading co-star in the primetime series Charmed as detective Andy Trudeau and the nascent burgeoning franchise around it as the series began its eight season run chronicling the adventurous lives of the three Halliwell sister-witches, the "Charmed Ones." King's character Andy, with a background as their childhood friend, plays an inspector who helps the sisters cover up complications of supernatural villains and magic's side effects as their new-found witch powers grow and attract evil hoping to absorb their magical abilities. He was the first season's major male love interest of the leading actress, Shannen Doherty (playing Prue Halliwell), from the October 1998 pilot to the May 1999 finale, where his character nobly sacrificed himself in the season finale to save his love and her sisters from an otherwise insoluble magical dilemma.
In 2002, King returned to soaps as Luís Alcazar on General Hospital until his character was killed off. However, he later returned to General Hospital as Luís' identical younger brother, Lorenzo Alcazar.
He has had guest-starring roles on such series as Frasier, Sex and the City and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, among many others.
His feature film credits include The X-Files movie and a role in the independent feature film Hoodlum & Son.

He received his college degree from The University of California, Santa Barbara, and went on to study film direction at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. He has worked in film editing and been involved in New York Theater over the past several years. King is credited with co-founding the Portal Theater Company, an off-Broadway repertory company, where he directed "Beggars in the House of Plenty," written by John Patrick Shanley.
Off-screen, King is active in various charitable organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
