DIGITAL SPY – Elizabeth Olsen has defended co-star Tom Hiddleston’s casting as Hank Williams in their upcoming movie – claiming that he “nailed” his performance as the legendary singer.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star – who was awarded Movie Actress of the Year at last night’s Elle Style Awards – plays Audrey Mae Williams opposite Hiddleston in Marc Abraham’s I Saw the Light, set for release later this year.
She told Digital Spy: “I know some people were confused by why he was cast as the part, but you won’t think twice about when you watch the movie.”
Olsen also spoke about co-starring with Jeremy Renner in upcoming political thriller Windy River, and playing Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
TV Actress of the Year Liv Tyler, All Saints, Ellie Goulding, Nick Grimshaw and Inspiring Woman of the Year Karlie Kloss were also in attendance at yesterday’s star-studded ceremony at the Tate Britain.
