Elvis Presley’s Granddaughter Riley Keough Set to Appear in Major New Film

by Joe Rutland

Riley Keough, who is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley, is set to appear with Jesse Eisenberg and Adrien Brody in a major new film.

Keough is slated to have a role in director John Trengrove’s film “Manodrome,” according to an article in Variety. Before this movie, though, Keough will be appearing in “Zola” and an Amazon original film, “Daisy Jones & The Six.”

But you’re asking, “What’s her connection with Elvis Presley?” We mentioned that she’s the granddaughter of The King of Rock and Roll. So Keough is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough.

The 32-year-old actress is primarily raised by her father. She did spend time with her mother, too. Lisa Marie is the only child from the marriage of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley.

She makes her film debut in 2010, starring in the biopic “The Runaways” about one of rock music’s bands from the 1970s.

But Keough has her big breakthrough role in 2016 as part of Starz’s “The Girlfriend Experience.” The anthology series is directed by Steven Soderburgh. Keough plays a law student who turns into an escort in the first season.

Brody wins an Oscar as Best Actor for his role in “The Pianist.” He appears in Wes Anderson’s film “The French Dispatch” and returns for a third season on HBO’s series “Succession.” Eisenberg receives an Oscar nomination for his work on “The Social Network.” He has appeared in “Zombieland” as well.

Keough, though, actually got her start as a model back in 2004. She turned her focus on movies, much like her granddaddy Elvis Presley did after a prodigious music career launched him into fame.

A lot of her work has been on the independent film scene, so you can catch Keough appearing in those movies.

Granddaughter Honors Grandmother Priscilla With Striking Outfits

Recently, Keough took to social media. She shares some outfits that harken back to ones her grandmother Priscilla Presley might have worn.

A recent Instagram photo shows the granddaughter of Elvis Presley wearing a blue blouse, blue pants, and hoop earrings.

Riley Keough definitely knows how to get people’s attention through her own outfits, photos, and film appearances.

Her mother and father reportedly kept Riley’s young life filled either with Lisa Marie’s grandeur or father Danny’s more subtle style. It probably gave her a look at what she could achieve in both realms.

But she’s definitely been making her own tracks in the entertainment world, whether it’s as a model or movie star. Riley Keough may not be a superstar name on movie marquees all over the place. Yet her work, effort, and ability to do different types of roles keep her in demand.
