Priscilla Presley

Priscilla Presley (born May 24, 1945) is an actress and was the wife of the popular singer Elvis Presley until his death in 1975. She and Elvis are the parents of singer Lisa Marie Presley.

Born Priscilla Ann Wagner in Brooklyn, New York, Priscilla was the daughter of a United States Air Force officer stationed in West Germany while Elvis was stationed there during his stint in the United States Army. They met when she was only 14 years old, but Elvis continued his courtship for eight years, until she consented to marry him in 1967.

Her biological father, James Wagner, died shortly after she was born. Her mother remarried Paul Beaulieu, hence her maiden name is quoted as being Priscilla Beaulieu.

Priscilla starred in the soap opera Dallas for several years in the 1980s, and starred opposite Leslie Nielsen in the spoof movie The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad![?]
