Riley Keough

Today marks the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death on August 16, 1977.

On Wednesday, thousands of fans converged at Graceland to commemorate the King and got a surprise welcome from the music superstar's former wife and daughter—marking the first time Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley have appeared together at the annual gathering.

Noticeably absent was Lisa Marie's beautiful, 23-year-old budding actress daughter: Riley Keough.

But Keough is busy shooting a "Mad Max" reboot in Africa alongside Charlize Theron and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, after starring in this summer's Steven Soderbergh-directed "Magic Mike."

And she has three films lined up after that.

From taking over the big screen today to modeling in her younger years, Keough, who was born 12 years after her famous grandfather died, has chosen to follow in her family's show business footsteps.

With Elvis officially gone for 35 years and Lisa Marie putting her music career on hold, it is Keough who is set to take her grandfather's place in the limelight.

May 29, 1989: Danielle Riley Keough is born to Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough. Riley, as she is called, is the eldest grandchild of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.



Riley (center) has one brother, Benjamin Storm Keough, and two half-sisters, twins Finley and Harper Lockwood—from her mother's current husband, musician Michael Lockwood.



Before Lockwood, Riley's stepfathers included Michael Jackson, who her mother Lisa Marie Presley was married to from 1994 to 1996 and Nicolas Cage, Presley's husband from 2002-2004. Check out the below family photo from elvis-postcards.com.
