Model-Turned-Actress Riley Keough Tells Us What It's Like Playing Opposite Orlando Bloom

Riley Keough, who just happens to be Lisa Marie Presley's daughter and Elvis's granddaughter, was walking the European runways by the age of 14. She made her acting debut in The Runaways, and her latest film, The Good Doctor, opens tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The Good Doctor is the second film you've acted in. What has it been like making the transition from model to actor, and what have you learned along the way?

It's been wonderful. I think I was really lucky being able to grow up modeling and getting the opportunity to travel the world and experience so much at a young age. They are definitely two totally different worlds so it's been very cool to experience them both in a lifetime. Acting is what I've always wanted to do and is such a huge passion of mine. I feel really blessed that I get to do it.

The film is very dark; are you a fan of thrillers like this? Was it draining at all to assume this role?

It is dark. But I think there's something really beautiful and unique to it as well. I am a fan of all kinds of films; dark, light, thrillers, drama, comedy, everything! As long as they have an emotional effect on me, I suppose.

What was it like playing opposite Orlando Bloom?

Had you two met previous to shooting the film? We had never met, no. The first time we met was in a read-through for The Good Doctor. It was really great working with him. He's a very wonderful person, very caring and sincere, and such a talented actor as well. It's so great to work with nice people. One of my favorite things about [acting] is getting to watch everyone else's work and he was definitely fun to watch.
