Olivia DeJonge on Elvis and Portraying Priscilla Presley
Jun 28 2022
With writer-director Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis now playing in theaters around the world, I recently got to speak with Olivia DeJonge about playing Priscilla Presley in the biopic. As you’ve seen in the trailers, Elvis is about the complicated relationship between Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks) and Elvis Presley (Austin Butler). The film tells Elvis’ story from Parker’s point of view, and it spans over two decades and includes Presley’s rise to fame against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.
