GRACELAND, TENN., Feb. 23 -- Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Elvis Presley), Camryn Manheim (Gladys Presley) and Robert Patrick (Vernon Presley), stars of the CBS mini-series ELVIS, traveled from New Orleans to Graceland to film several scenes at Presley�s beloved home.
At Graceland, Rhys Meyers was allowed to sit behind a desk in Vernon Presley�s office and answer questions from the press who came to visit the set. The office was the site of the famous press conference Presley held upon returning from the Army.
While in Memphis, Rhys Meyers purchased a bottle of cologne that was worn by Presley at Lansky�s, a store where Presley used to by his clothes.
