As one of the most famous people in the Presley family, Riley Keough, the granddaughter of iconic singer Elvis Presley, has made a serious name for herself in the show business.
People often tend to forget about her Presley family lineage because of her last name, but Keough is truly keeping the legacy of her grandfather alive in her own way.
She is the daughter of Lisa Marie, Presley’s daughter, and musician Danny Keough. As the couple later divorced, Keough spent most of her days split between her father and mother.
Keough lived two different worlds split between her mother’s luxurious, celeb lifestyle and her father’s trailer park.
“I grew up very privileged with my mother. But my dad didn’t live like that. And I think experiencing both sides has been helpful. My father had mattresses on the floor of his apartment. He lived in cabins and trailer parks,” Keough explained in an interview.
Her mother, Lisa Marie, married Michael Jackson only twenty days after her split with Danny, so Keough also spent most of her days at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch.
Today, Keough is a renowned star in her own right with a number of successful movies to her name.
She made her debut in the entertainment industry with 2010’s “The Runaways,” where she was cast alongside Dakota Fanning. In the movie, she impressed in the role of a young rock star of a 1970’s all-girl rock group.
Closely following this, she was cast in the lead role for the movie, “The Good Doctor,” in 2011 alongside stars like Orlando Bloom and Taraji P. Henson.
In 2015, she also got a role in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which went on to become a box office hit.
However, her groundbreaking performance and critically-acclaimed reviews came in 2016’s “The Girlfriend Experience,” a series by Steven Soderbergh.
In 2017 alone, she had five movies coming out, one of which was “Logan Lucky,” where she was cast alongside Channing Tatum.
Besides sharing the kind of fame that her late grandfather once enjoyed, Keough is also often believed to be sharing a similar look with her grandmother and Presley’s former wife, Priscilla.
