Actor Sam Claflin recently shared details about working alongside co-star Riley Keough in the upcoming miniseries Daisy Jones & the Six. Keough, who plays a singer in the show, comes from a family of musicians, being the daughter of late Lisa Marie Presley, who was the only daughter of legendary musician Elvis Presley.
Despite her musical roots, Claflin praised Keough’s abilities and shared how the two learned how to be rockstars for the first time together. “In truth, I couldn’t have asked for a better teammate,” he told People. “As much as she had that reputation in her family genes, she didn’t come with much musical experience herself, so the two of us had each other to lean on in that way.”
During the show’s Amazon Prime Video premiere on Thursday, February 23rd, 2023, Keough revealed that her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, will make a cameo appearance in the second episode. Although she did not disclose much about the role, she mentioned how “exciting” filming the show was after over a year of music rehearsals.
Keough also spoke highly of her experience working on the show and the thrill of finally getting to perform after months of preparation. “By the time we got to the stage, it was very exciting and we were all just thrilled to be able to test out the thing we’d been practicing for so long and it was wonderful,” she said.
Daisy Jones & the Six, based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, tells the story of a fictional rock band’s rise to fame in the 1970s. Claflin stars alongside Keough as co-lead band singer Billy Dunne. The series is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video soon, offering viewers a glimpse into the world of rock ‘n’ roll and the struggles and triumphs that come with fame.
