More famous for her marriage to Elvis than her acting, Priscilla has nevertheless had a fair degree of success on both the small and big screen.


Priscilla Beaulieu met Elvis when she was just 14, the daughter of an air force officer stationed in Germany at the same time as the 24-year-old Elvis, then four years into rock 'n' roll fame.

After an eight-year courtship, she married him in May 1967, at the age of 21. Nine months later they had a daughter, Lisa Marie. As their marriage began to fall apart, Priscilla studied karate and acting. They divorced in 1973 and Elvis died four years later.

She turned down a part as one of the Angels in the 1979 TV series, 'Charlie's Angels', but then forged her career with appearances in soap opera phenomenon, 'Dallas', playing Jenna Wade.

She established herself as love interest Jane Spencer, in the 'Naked Gun' spoofs, and made an uncredited cameo in 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery'.

She has lived with Marco Garibaldi since 1984 - they have a son, Navarone.
