|WALKING DEAD ACTRESS PLAYS GLADYS IN MDQ
April 12, 2016 - PR Rocket- Elvis Express Radio
Ann Mahoney who plays “Olivia” on one of televisions hottest shows, “The Walking Dead”, has been cast as “Gladys Presley”, Elvis Presley’s mother, in the new television series
“Million Dollar Quartet”. Mahoney said, “I’m so thrilled to be a part of this amazing cast and play such an iconic role. I’m grateful to CMT for giving me such a tremendous opportunity
to be a part of this show.”
Gladys Presley has been described as a very protective mother so protective that she was known to beat up other kids if they were trying to hurt Elvis. Gladys walked Elvis to school
until his mid-teen years and only stopped when Elvis protested. It was Gladys who was the disciplinarian in the family and the person who made sure Elvis knew he was something
special. In turn, Elvis promised his mother he would take care of her when he became famous and by all accounts he lived up to his word.
“Million Dollar Quartet” began filming in the beginning of April in Memphis and is scheduled to debut in early November. It is timed to correspond with the 60th anniversary of the
famous recoding sessions with icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins.
