Priscilla Presley is gearing up for her first ever panto, and it seems she's enjoying the experience.

The ex-wife of Elvis will star as the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the New Wimbledon Theatre later this year, and new pictures show Priscilla looks positively evil in her costume.

The dress is quite revealing for the 67-year-old, as she makes use of the big split in the front of her red dress to stick out one of her toned legs.

Lady in red: The 67-year-old actress shows off her revealing red sequined costume, which she will wear every evening in Snow White
The actress will star next to Warwick Davis and Jarred Christmas in the show that starts its run on December 7.

She follows in the footsteps of Dame Edna and David Hasselhoff, who also appeared at the theatre in previous pantomimes.

'I have heard such wonderful things about British pantomime,' Priscilla said.

'The script is hilarious, my costume is sensational and I can't wait to get started and give the people of London my Wicked Queen.'

'I've heard such wonderful things': Priscilla is looking forward to starring in her first panto alongside Warwick Davis and Jarred Christmas
Priscilla recently spoke to the Sunday Times Magazine about her rocky relationship with her daughter Lisa Marie, that she says stems from the legacy Elvis left them with.

'I have to admit we've both had problems with men over the years. We've both made some bad choices. And maybe it's because we both still live with the shadow of Elvis.

'What I mean is, any man who comes into our lives has to understand that being with us can be overwhelming. The whole world is always watching.'

New role: Elvis Presley's former wife follows in the footsteps of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson who have previously performed at the theatre in their own festive stage shows
However, the two have since made up and are now closer than ever.

'These days, I'd call Lisa Marie my best friend. I think that being a mother herself helped her to understand that, throughout those difficult times, I was just trying to do what was right for her.

'We've been through so much together: personal problems, family problems, relationship problems. That pushed us apart for a long time, but finally we've found each other again.'

Here's a link to the original source,this has photos,I didn't know how to post them!

Yea she was promoting the Panto and talking about her role in Dallas,as I said when there's no talk of Elvis it's boring(For me.)
Her ties with Elvis and the Presley name are what's getting her these jobs not her acting abilities,although I'm not knocking that.

Quite funny really,Elvis was the King and now she's playing the wicked Queen! In the Elvis world many have always held that opinion of her.I personally haven't got a problem with her ( I met her and she was great) but even she must realise that the only reason she's in the Panto is because they want the lure of the Presley name up in lights.
But I suppose she can't really win,we moan when we think she's milking the Elvis connection and we moan when she doesn't talk about him! She should give up the acting an be what she is which is the same as the rest of them,a walking talking connection to Elvis,who's pull on us is still so strong that we give them the time of day.

Scientologists like Priscilla actually believe that when you die the spirit "drops the body" and comes back in a new body.
Given Priscilla's obvious unhappy state of mind , her obsession with her looks and her desperate but failing attemps to stay young by means of the scalpel
I can;t figure out why she hasn't found her way out yet in this lifetime.

She was good in Naked Gun where she played it straight for the comedy. But as the Wicked Queen she's going to be booed (panto tradition)! I wonder what her interaction with the audience will be like - will she say, "Oh no it isn't!". I think she's bound to. Anyway, I hope she really enjoys panto.

I love Panto.

Slightly off topic. Abu Hamza received a timely boost today when the Guantanamo Prison announced Peter Pan as their Christmas panto.

It's my guess that the Presley family have quietly cut their ties with Scientology.
