Naturally, people were curious to know Priscilla’s thoughts on the casting in her namesake film. After all, she was an outspoken supporter of Austin Butler’s performance in the 2022 biopic Elvis.

“You know, he’s a great actor,” Priscilla previously said about Jacob playing Elvis in the new movie. “He’s a great actor, and I can only imagine him being a nervous wreck like everyone else is. But, I love Sofia. I love her film work, and I think it’ll be fine…I hope!”
