Sometimes, when you meet someone for the first time, there’s a spark. That’s what happened toTom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, at least.

The rumored couple star in the upcoming “I Saw the Light,” a biopic about the rise of country singer Hank Williams, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival this week. They’ve been linked throughout the summer, but Olsen told MTV News that the two had instant chemistry when they met on an audition four years ago.

Audrey aspires to be a country singer and performs duets with Williams at the gin joints Williams plays at during the early stages of his career.

When Audrey gets increasingly serious about her career and wants to sing with Williams at his radio gigs, things don’t go so well. While belting out the songs in a high-pitched wail, even Williams can’t defend his wife when she’s finally told she can’t continue to perform alongside her husband.

Olsen said singing badly on purpose was a lot of fun.
