Austin Butler had to perform so much singing during the filming of “Elvis,” which caused damage to his vocal cords.

The 31-year-old movie star is up for an Oscar for best actor for his depiction of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s biography, but playing The King wasn’t easy as he hurt himself by repeatedly singing the music legend’s hits – one performance was done 40 times to achieve the proper take.

Austin has also struggled to ditch the Southern accent he adopted to play Elvis, and during an appearance on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, he explained: “I am getting rid of the accent, but I have probably damaged my vocal cords with all that singing. One song took 40 takes!”

Austin also discussed working alongside seasoned actor Tom Hanks, who portrayed Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis Presley’s manager, in the movie.

The actor told the host: “I had no idea what it was going to be like meeting someone you have admired for so long. You hope they would be warm to you, but you never really know.

“He is such a master of his craft, and I was intimidated, but the first time I met him he gave me the biggest bear hug and joked about how nervous he was. When I said I was terrified, he said: ‘And, nobody knows what Colonel Parker sounds like, but everyone knows what Elvis sounds like!'”
