Riley Keough, Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, discusses her acting and her role in the new TV series in which she starred in a recent interview with Net-A-Porter. In the interview, the actress discussed the consequences of substance misuse on her family and how she reflected on it in her most recent performing effort.

Daisy Jones and the Six, a mini-series about a rock band’s path in the industry, has the actress as the lead character. The show, which premiered in early March, also exposes drug misuse among rock musicians through Keuogh’s character Daisy, which is intriguing given that several of her family members have suffered from addiction in the past.

The actress wanted her character’s condition to be genuine and devoid of glitter in order to depict the dangers of addiction and its challenges, which she had witnessed in her own family.

“Because this is something I’ve experienced in my family,” the actress said. “I wanted the moments in which you see Daisy’s addiction to not feel glamorous, to make sure that those moments had weight to them, that we’re seeing the humanity behind the closed doors of what people are perceiving to be glamour. I wanted to make Daisy very human and have moments of being silly. I wanted to see other sides to her before she ends up this quintessential fu**ed-up rock star on drugs.”

Daisy Jones & The Six is an American musical drama streaming television miniseries created by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel of the same name. Set in the late 1970s Los Angeles music scene, the series follows the growth and demise of the fictional eponymous rock band through a documentary-style series of interviews with the members and videos of performances and recording sessions.
