About Elordi’s role in movie Priscilla
For the movie, Jacob Elordi has been praised by both critics and the real-life Priscilla Presley for his depiction of Elvis Presley. In the movie, the actor ignored “the mythology” surrounding the artist and instead tried to find “where the real person lies” when preparing to play the role. The movie director confirmed that Priscilla Presley liked Elordi’s Elvis accent and was surprised by how much Jacob’s voice resembled her ex-husband’s. The movie is based on Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir Elvis and Me about her tumultuous time married to the musician, their divorce, and up until his death in 1977. Coppola made the film to shed light on Priscilla’s lesser-known perspective, as fans are mostly familiar with Elvis and Priscilla as a legendary couple.
