Olivia DeJonge is best known for her work in the Netflix series The Society and now she has landed her star-making role!
The 21-year-old Aussie actress is set to play Priscilla Presley in the upcoming biopic about Elvis, which is going to be directed by Baz Luhrmann.
Austin Butler is set to play the late rock star and Tom Hanks will play his manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
“Olivia is capable of manifesting the complex depth and presence that has made Priscilla Presley an icon in her own right. She’s an extremely talented young actor and the perfect counterpoint to Austin’s Elvis,” Baz told Deadline in a statement.
Baz‘s movie “covers the seminal legend’s growth from dirt poor singer to global icon, seen through the prism of his complex relationship over two decades with manager Colonel Tom Parker.”
