We interview Tom Hiddleston & Elizabeth Olsen for I Saw The Light!

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

Oftentimes I get a hankering for a good bio pic, especially when it involves a singer that I'm a fan of. I SAW THE LIGHT is one such feature that explores the legacy of country great Hank Williams. Tom Hiddleston is a revelation as Williams. He ably brings the legendary singer – and his music – to life. It also helps that he is supported by the terrific Elizabeth Olsen as his strong-willed wife Audrey.

There are certain actors that I wholeheartedly look forward to interviewing, and Mr. Hiddleston is one. Besides being one of my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe, the actor is especially talented and charismatic – and one hell of a nice guy. During our conversation, we talked about singing Williams' classic songs for the film, and working with another country superstar to bring Hank's work to life. The actor is superb here, and he continues to take on challenging roles like this.

We also spoke with both Elizabeth Olsen and writer/director Marc Abraham about the film. The incredibly talented Ms. Olsen discussed working on a film like this, as well as playing Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Universe. Director Abraham discussed his love of country music, and what it was about Hank Williams' story that compelled him to bring it to the big screen. If you happen to be a fan of Hank Williams, the new film will show you a side of this incredbile talent that you may have been unaware of. It also proves once again how fantastic of an actor (and singer) Tom Hiddleston is. 

I SAW THE LIGHT opens this Friday at a theatre near you.
