Daughter of musicians Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough, Riley Keough is the eldest grandchild of late icon Elvis Presley. At age 15, she began a career in modeling, appearing in shows for Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior. In August 2004, she was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Riley made her film debut in the 2010 biographical drama The Runaways, starring alongside Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. She subsequently worked on The Good Doctor (2011), Magic Mike (2012), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and The Lodge (2019). Following a string of notable performances in independent horror movies — including It Comes at Night (2017) and Hold the Dark (2018) — she’s become known as one of Hollywood’s go-to “scream queens.”

In February 2015, the actress wed Ben Smith-Petersen, whom she met while filming Mad Max: Fury Road. The pair tied the knot in Napa, California.

Riley has two half-sisters, twins Harper and Finley, from her mother’s fourth marriage to Michael Lockwood. Her younger brother, Benjamin Keough, died by suicide in July 2020.
