The actress tells news sources  that Lisa Marie Presley, Riley Keough's mother, and Daisy Jones, her newest role, share more than just a love of rock 'n' roll.

In the Amazon adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid's best-selling book Daisy Jones & The Six, Keough is getting ready to hit the screen (and stage). The Zola actress portrays a rebellious singer who, throughout the '70s, establishes herself as a rock legend as well as a feminist icon who is admired by young women and girls for her refusal to comply with gender roles and societal expectations.

The 33-year-old actress said that she did have a Daisy Jones growing up—her mother.

According to Keough, the 54-year-old daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley is "a really powerful, intellectual woman," and she "is definitely an inspiration to me."

She goes on, "I grew up with a person who followed their own path without much regard for what others might think. She undoubtedly served as an inspiration to me."

According to Keough, "I believe just ladies who were liberated were motivating to me," and she was "always fascinated in women who weren't behaving 'the right way'."

The “It Comes at Night'' actress claims that during her teen years, when she was "sort of living in the '70s in my imagination," she had a "huge" love affair with Led Zeppelin and Robert Plant. However, the music she was weaned on wasn't from that time period. She observes, "My innate methods of moving to music are not period-correct [to Daisy Jones]."

Keough revealed to news sources  that she collected notes on some of the most influential and renowned singers from the '70s in order to prepare to fill the enormous shoes Reid set in her 2019 novel. The actor from The Terminal List claims that after watching "a tonne of films" from the time, she realised that "not a tonne of ladies were going crazy on stage at the time."

Keough explains that while some women were headed in that direction, most of the time they would just stand there and sing. "I believe Daisy was innately a little more at ease in her own body and being who she is in a manner that I believe was incredibly challenging for women at that time," the author said.

Keough chose to research renowned rockers like Linda Ronstadt and, of course, Fleetwood Mac lead singer Stevie Nicks, whose band served as a major source of inspiration for Daisy Jones, in order to bring Daisy to life. But in the end, the actress confesses, she did as her mother had done: "I did my own thing."
