Elizabeth Olsen

Briefly: Just after some footage of Tom Hiddleston singing as Hank Williams at a music festival in Michigan surfaced online before he steps in front of cameras for the country western musician's biopic I Saw the Light, the female lead of the film has been revealed. Deadline reports Godzilla and upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron star Elizabeth Olsen has landed the role of Williams' wife Audrey Mae, who tragically had to deal with the death of her husband at the far too young age of 29, due to heart failure. The film will chronicle the quick rise to fame Williams attained as a popular singer and musician and how it affected his personal life. That surely includes Mae on a number of levels. Stay tuned for more updates.

be interesting to see if this will be a fluffy nice story about him or based on his troubles. I think if they were very serious about nailing his portrayal they really should have tried to get his grand son. he's practically a clone of him and his voice. it's scary how similar he can sound to him.
