In a separate interview with THR, austin divided, “[This role] seemed like this impossible mountain to climb before me. There were so many pitfalls that I just focused on one step at a time. And really, I just wanted to honor the life of this man and his family. And therefore these moments when Lisa Marie and Priscilla [Presley] I had to see the film and then I saw her for the first time afterwards…nothing I would do would ever top that. And especially with Lisa Marie not be here with us. I just wish she was here to celebrate with us today.”

“She was the most straightforward and supportive person. I know from all the times we got to party together, how we would party today, you know, and I wish she and Elvis were here to experience that time.” austin continued.

He added, “It really puts things into perspective, which is ultimately what I’m most grateful for, that I got to spend the time that I had Lisa Marie, and also the time I had to live and research her father’s life for three years. When I see moments like today or when I feel moments like today, I really need to take a second to say, ‘Okay, this is something I really have to be thankful for.’ But nothing compares to the moment I looked into her eyes after she saw the film for the first time, as she told me how much it meant to her. I will really cherish that for the rest of my life.”
