Biography

Legacy is prevalent even if it doesn't match your last name, as Riley Keough knows well. Keough was the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, meaning her grandfather was the superstar Elvis Presley. While her mother remained in the headlines throughout her youth, which included marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, Keough was mostly shielded from the rash of paparazzi and tabloids. She made her acting debut in "The Runaways" (2010) alongside Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart. The next year, Keough appeared alongside Orlando Bloom and Taraji P. Henson in "The Good Doctor" (2011), receiving accolades for her roles as a distressed patient. Her first leading role was "Jack & Diane," a maligned film where she played the love interest to Juno Temple. She began working with director Steven Soderbergh with a role in "Magic Mike" (2012), and with her profile being a little larger, she wound up entering the world of modeling, mostly due to work with the the fashion company Bonds. Her work with modeling led to her not acting much in 2013 and 2014, with her most notable credit being a Justin Timberlake music video. In 2015, though, Keough began to act more often, with her highest profile work in "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015). She also starred in "Dixieland" (2015), "Lovesong" (2016), and "We Don't Belong Here" (2016) at this time. Keough reunited with Soderbergh for the lead role in the TV drama "The Girlfriend Experience" (Starz 2016- ), based on the director's 2009 film about the escort service industry.
