This Swedish-American actress is known for her singing and dancing talents – so much so that she gained the nickname “The Female Elvis.” She’s starred in Bye Bye Birdie, Viva Las Vegas, and has also performed several covers of Elvis songs, including “Heartbreak Hotel.” She was on the TV series Ray Donovan and Happy!
