    His wide knowledge range of the performing art is awesome, and the way he delivered all that in such soft spoken voice is beyond compare...
    You deserve the all the best, Austin 💯

    I continue to be inspired by how level-headed this young man seems to be. The conversation on "you are enough" is so insightful for someone of his age. I pray he is able to keep being this person that is so deserving of everything he has coming to him at this time. I wish I knew him personally. His conversations are always so grounding. Wishing you the best Austin.

    I absolutely love the idea of fear being 'just there' and to "welcome it" or "I see you" - knowing that Austin had fear shooting this film helped me through a couple of fearful times recently; it's different for all of us but to know it won't cripple you is amazing! AND that we grow as we face our fears :)

    Austin you have endless qualities. You are so humble, sweet, unbelievably talented, and so beautiful on the eyes. You are so calm, your voice is intoxicating. Your hair is actually sensual. You so deserve the Oscar.

    I have been a fan of Elvis since 4 years old. I have said MANY times that no one could ever play him. Austin did it. There is no ceiling above Elvis. It's not because I love Austin, I love Elvis,. He did it.

    When they switched to the real Elvis in Unchained Melody my wife gasped, I don't think she had ever seen that footage of Elvis before. That was so sad.

    Austin you eminiate your love to your Mother by giving her the part of Elvis and watching the clip of Elvis singing Unchained Melody drives truly shows your love to her and how Elvis loved his mother. You deserve for the Oscar for committing your role as Elvis himself. Love your work and it is being recognize by others for your Great talent. 😚

    Thank you, Austin! I never tire of repeating how brilliant You are. You have no reason to compare yourself to others, You shouldn't listen to the media at all, it doesn't matter at all what others think of us if we've given our best. The fact that we constantly doubt ourselves probably comes with us from childhood and we have to let it all go... It was so nice to listen to you again, how honestly you talk about everything. Thank you very much and all the Best. Be Happy and it is our decision to choose to be Happy and not to listen to the nonsense that is happening in our head but to feel with our Heart because it never lies to us... All the beautiful things in Your life... You are the Best...Thank You!

    Without sounding sappy, lol... Elvis was introduced to me at a very young age and ever since I've been captivated! I loved his voice and undeniable passion, his warmth and kindness. I could go on and on 😂 And I still do to this very day. I can't quite believe that even for a second Elvis thought he wouldn't really leave an impact after death! If only he could see now, just how big of one he left! 🌟 His music and sunshine has helped me so much in so many ways! This movie was just so stunning and so emotional. Austin truly did an incredible job. I don't think I could have wished for a better Elvis other than the king himself. ❤ Also, I so appreciate how much research and effort he put into this film. It was beautiful. Austin is so multi-talented, skilled at his craft, kind, wise, genuine, down to earth, funny - the list goes on! This man has so many great qualities as well, and I wish him the best and look forward to see more of him! The fact it was filmed in Australia as well dvgnhdh, I’ve wanted to act since I was little and it fueled me with such hope and inspiration! Also that segment on, “you are enough” Thank you 💕 Hope everyone is doing well xx - Char. 😊

      Fantastic comment! Although, I just hope he stays humble and doesn’t get crushed by fame. I’m so happy that he got the recognition he deserves, and can share to the world his journey to this point and inspire others. I’m sure you’d be a lovely actor Char. “You can be anything.” - Barbie. If you set your mind to it, you can achieve it. God bless you, and your family. Hope is everywhere. Elvis will always be in our hearts! ❤️👑

    I love Austin’s voice, but I can barely understand his soft toned quiet voice. I’m surprised he never caught a mixed accent like Johnny Depp. I think he made Baz’s accent a bit more American though, haha! I had to rewatch Elvis, with subtitles so I could understand what they were saying, I couldn’t even understand the Colonel. (Tom Hanks) 😂 Hope I’m not the only one.

    I did enjoy the Elvis movie - however Austin entirely missed to capture Elvis sense of humor which a lot of people don’t realize he had unless you are a die hard fan. Nevertheless I wish this bright young man all the best in the future. On another note ….he was NOT the movie director….

    • Danny
      Danny 2 months ago +3

      There's is a lot of Elvis' denver of humor in the film, I suggest you watch it again, also he didn't decide what scenes were put in the movie. Austin didn't "missed" anything.

      I mean there's nothing wrong with being envious of someone else. That's literally what he said and he also said he learnt not to do that

    • Danny
      Danny 3 months ago +9

      @Miss shah that's not what he said, it isn't about envy; he is talking about admiration, about being able to get to that point; that's why he mentions the fear, feeling like he isn't enough, how he felt he was behind, and how he learned to not compare himself (his career) in the sense of (for example) "the subject of my admiration had already done X thing at 25, and I'm 27 and I haven't been able to get to that point in my career"

    ..THE ELVIS FILM WILL NEVER COMPARE TO THE MICHAEL BIOPIC SET TO RELEASE IN 2025! Nice try Austin but you can't even come close! You're not even related to Elvis. Michael is going to have his blood line NEPHEW play him in his biopic. It doesn't get any more royalty than that. How does it feel? And don't think for a second we forgot the executives of 'Elvis' thought it was fitting to release the film the day before Michael's death anniversary on June 25th. You are NOT forgiven for that one. Michael >> Elvis. Long live the King!!

    • Alynne Duarrte
      Alynne Duarrte 3 months ago +5

      This isn't a competition. Elvis has his own fan base just like Michael. Austin doesn't deserve the grudge you're feeling right now. He did a brilliant job just as Michael's nephew can do too.
