Annette Day, the only English actress to co-star in a film with Elvis Presley has spoken exclusively to the BBC on the 25th anniversary of his death. Annette Day, of Telford, Shropshire, was 17 when she starred opposite Elvis in the 1966 film Double Trouble. Ms. Day was working on a market stall at Portobello Road in London when she was spotted by an American producer and flown to the Hollywood to star in the movie. During the filming Elvis bought her a white Mustang car. Ms. Day played Jill Conway, a rich heiress who follows Elvis around Europe in the film – which was shot in Hollywood. It was the only film that Ms. Day made, but she has fond memories of the movie. Read more.

Annette Day (born 1947): “One of the youngest actresses to ever costar with Elvis, English ingenue Annette Day was just 18 years old when she acted in Double Trouble.

Day was discovered in typical Hollywood fashion. Producer Judd Bernard was shopping in an antique store on London’s famed Portobello Road when he caught a glimpse of the red-haired teenager. The shop belonged to Day’s mother, and Day was working behind the counter that day. Months later, when Bernard was casting for the film, he remembered the perky girl and called on her to ask the fateful question, ‘Do you want to be an actress?’

After a script reading in London and some meetings with MGM executives, Day did a screen test in Hollywood, which satisfied the producers enough to cast her opposite Elvis. Her only prior acting experience had consisted of doing the Charleston in a Christmas concert at school. Elvis’ cousin Billy Smith served as Ms. Day’s stand-in.

Elvis did take an interest in Day during filming, though not in the romantic sense. During filming Elvis surprised the 18-year-old, who had yet to learn to drive, with a white Mustang convertible. Unable to take the gift back home to Britain, Ms. Day left it in the U.S. in her brother’s care when she returned to England, where she still lives.” For Elvis Fans Only.
