Riley Keough gives details on her Daisy Jones & The Six audition
Daisy Jones & The Six is a show that's on everyone's lips right now, and it's not even been released yet. Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, it follows the fictional 1970s rock band, The Six, who pair up with singer, Daisy Jones.
Together, they find immense success but also experience the highs and lows of the classic "sex, drugs and rock'n'roll" lifestyle.
Despite many questioning whether the show is based on the iconic rock group, Fleetwood Mac, Riley Keough, who plays Daisy hails from another music royalty background - she is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and the daughter of the late Lisa-Marie Presley.
However, in a recent panel conversation, the 33-year-old admitted that she may not have been completely honest during her audition in terms of her singing abilities.
Before she landed the major role, she opened up about having to get creative in the audition room, specifically when she was asked whether she could sing or not.
"I think I blacked out on that meeting. I don't really remember what happened," Riley confessed.
"I auditioned like everybody else, and lied to them and told them l could sing."
Turns out, The Runaways star knew absolutely nothing about the show before auditioning for the lead character - she just felt that the role was calling her.
"I hadn't read the book [before her audition] and my agent called me and she said Hello Sunshine is making a show called Daisy Jones & the Six."
"And in that moment, I had like a weird cosmic dropdown. It was like, 'You're gonna be Daisy in this show,'" she added.
And as the saying goes, the rest is history. (Riley did end up reading the book, and said that she "fell in love with it like everybody else.")
Daisy Jones & the Six premieres on 3rd March on Prime Video.
