Elizabeth Olsen explains why singing badly on purpose for her new movie was ‘freeing’

In “I Saw the Light,” which premiered Friday night at the Toronto International Film Festival, Elizabeth Olsen plays Audrey Mae Williams, the first wife of legendary country singer-songwriter Hank Williams.

Olsen’s powerful performance portrays Audrey as someone who is strong-centered, but at a certain point, becomes fed-up with her famous husband’s cheating and hard drinking. She ends up divorcing him. Williams (played by Tom Hiddleston) would die tragically at the age of 29.

But, like Hiddleston, who really sings the Williams songs in the movie, Olsen gets to show off her vocal skills, too — but in a different fashion.

Audrey aspires to be a country singer and performs duets with Williams at the gin joints Williams plays at during the early stages of his career.

When Audrey gets increasingly serious about her career and wants to sing with Williams at his radio gigs, things don’t go so well. While belting out the songs in a high-pitched wail, even Williams can’t defend his wife when she’s finally told she can’t continue to perform alongside her husband.

Olsen said singing badly on purpose was a lot of fun.

“It was very freeing,” she told Business Insider. “[Tom] is trying to sound like someone so iconic, I’m trying to sound like someone who it’s even hard to find sound clippings of.”

Though Olsen managed to track down some recordings of Audrey singing, she was able to take liberties in how Audrey would sound.

The bigger challenge was making sure not to make Audrey sound too awful.

“In the movie when she sings in the household and in front of people you can enjoy listening to her, so we had to make sure a general person would think she’s okay,” Olsen told BI. “But when she starts singing for people that work in the industry and who have a musical ear, it had to be like, ‘She’s never going to be successful.’ So that was the balance.”

Olsen is no stranger to singing on screen. She did it in “Very Good Girls,” an indie film in which she co-starred with Dakota Fanning, that was released last year.

But singing badly on purpose in “I Saw the Light” was more fun.

“There’s so much humor in it,” she said. “You need that in a film with a lot of sadness.”

“I Saw the Light” opens in theaters November 27.

Toronto Film Festival: Elizabeth for W Magazine

Elizabeth Olsen, actress (“I Saw the Light”)
On playing Hank Williams’s wife, Audrey Mae: “Nobody has very nice things to say about her. She was untalented and wanted to be a star, so there were a lot of reasons to have an issue with her personality. But at the same time, she was dealing with an alcoholic husband who was never home, so you end up having compassion and empathy for her. I just tried to be her lawyer—to, you know, defend her.”

Elizabeth Olsen Thinks ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is “Going to be the Best One”

SUPERHEROHYPE – Following this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the collective Marvel team ended with a different roster than it began and among the new members was Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, AKA Scarlet Witch. Olsen is set to reprise her role in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and speaking with Premiere, the actress opened up about the film and had high praise for it and newcomer Daniel Brühl.

“I think it’s going to be the best one, no, no, but for real, I am very excited to see it for myself. I only worked on set for five weeks, so I wasn’t there for the majority of it, but Daniel Brühl is an incredible actor and he’s playing the main villain in it. He’s incredible. It’s a movie about people as opposed to robots this time, so it’s darker and it’s allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines.”

Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. It is set to feature the return of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, this time joined in his “solo” film by fellow Avengers Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
