15 years earlier, she starred as a seventeen-year-old Tripler Army Hospital nurse in the 2001 American romantic war drama film Pearl Harbour. The other nurses were Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Garner, Catherine Kellner, and Sara Rue.

Making her first appearance in a large Hollywood production as nurse Betty Bayer, Jaime King was 22 years old when the film was released on May 21, 2001. Born on April 23, 1979, in Omaha, Nebraska, she celebrated her 22nd birthday on April 23, 2001.

Having lied about her age to become a nurse and officer in the Navy, Jaime King’s character Betty Bayer is killed when her hospital is bombed in the attack on Pearl Harbour. She is pronounced dead by her colleague Lieutenant Evelyn Johnson (Kate Beckinsale).

“You look at James’ beauty pictures, and she’s very serious, debonair and exotic,” director Michael Benjamin Bay said about Pearl Harbor’s” wide-eyed nurse, Betty.

“You meet her, and she’s got these [imperfect] teeth that work to her advantage. She’s a beautiful girl with a goofy edge. And she’s got a lot of range. The camera gravitates to her,” he added about Jaime King in an interview with New York Daily News.
