Wilson and her recovery

  • Wilson and Hanks went into an immediate quarantine once they were diagnosed with COVID-19, as I wrote for the Deseret News. The couple were diagnosed when they were in Australia, working on an Elvis Presley biopic. The couple then traveled back to the United States at the end of March as they worked through their diagnosis.
  • Wilson released a quarantine playlist amid the coronavirus pandemic, offering music for people to listen to while they’re stuck at home.
  • Wilson also created a new text line for people to text her as well, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
