Bill Kenwright interviews Priscilla Presley in the year that the King of Rock 'n' Roll would have turned 75.
Born into an Army family in New York, Priscilla went to high school in Wiesbaden, West Germany, where she met her future husband, Elvis Presley. Although Priscilla and Elvis divorced in 1973, they remained close up until his untimely death in 1977.
Priscilla is a successful business woman and her acting work includes Dallas and the Naked Gun trilogy, as well as guest roles in Spin City and Melrose Place. In 1987, her book Elvis And Me spent six weeks at the top of The New York Times bestseller list before being adapted into a television mini-series. She's also developing a stage play based on her life, which is written from the perspective of a teenage girl thrust into the public eye because of her relationship with one of the most famous men in the world.
Priscilla is appearing in Elvis Forever, Radio 2's concert celebrating the music of Elvis Presley, which is live from London's Hyde Park on Sunday 12 September.
