Riley Keough became the main protagonist of Daisy Jones & The Six, the highly anticipated Amazon Prime Video series that adapts the famous book by Taylor Jenkins Reid. For this, the actress had to film a lot of scenes, one of which made her feel very uncomfortable.
Daisy Jones & The Six is the new sensation on Amazon Prime Video. Based on the best-selling book by Taylor Jenkins Reid, the story introduces us to a rock band, which narrates and reveals details about its formation, rise to fame, and subsequent separation, revealing all the problems and factors that led to its end.
The first three episodes are already available on the platform, while the next three will arrive on March 10. Episodes 7 and 8 will premiere on March 17, while the last two episodes will be released on the 24th of the same month. The series has a cast led by Riley Keough, Sam Claflin, and Camila Morrone, among others.
Keough is in charge of playing the protagonist who gives the title of the series its name, Daisy Jones, and for this, the 33-year-old actress had to film all kinds of scenes, where she dazzled with her ability to sing and music. But also, she demonstrated her acting talent, especially in a scene that she had to film and in which she felt very uncomfortable.
Visiting the talk show hosted by Seth Meyers, Riley Keough revealed that she had to film a romantic scene that became extremely awkward. Most ironic of all, the person she had to film it with was none other than her husband, Ben Smith Petersen.
Petersen, who is also an actor, has a cameo in Daisy Jones & The Six, where he plays Daisy’s brief love interest. “The cameo happened because I have to have relationships with a random person in the series,” the actress revealed. “And the producers thought it was going to be a lot of fun casting my husband for that scene,” she added.
However, it was not to be, and it ended up being a very awkward moment for both of them. “I think they thought it would be less embarrassing,” Riley opened up. “But it was very uncomfortable. I mean, I never pretend to have s*x with my husband,” she added with a laugh. Also, while those types of scenes are usually very professional and choreographed, in the case of the couple, it was “very strange” by her own account, saying they were constantly laughing, ruining the shot.
Riley and Ben met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road back in 2012, and in 2014 they got engaged. In 2015, at the same time that the film was released, the couple walked down the aisle, and since then, they have not separated. Recently, during one of the ceremonies in honor of Lisa Marie Presley, Riley’s mother and recently deceased, Ben Smith Petersen revealed that they became the parents of a girl.
Even so, and despite the embarrassing and funny moment they lived in Daisy Jones & The Six, both Riley and Ben were very happy to have been able to work together. On his social networks, the actor usually dedicates many posts and love messages to his wife. Riley, for her part, even though she’s much more private about her life, never hesitates to occasionally peek at fans about her relationship.
