Riley Keough, an actress cum director, remembered her late brother and mom just after the tragic third death anniversary of the actress’s brother. 

Riley’s brother, Benjamin Keough, died by suicide on July 12, 2020, at the age of 27. 

Tuesday marked six months after her mother, Lisa Marie Presley’s passing, died earlier this year at the age of 54.

Taking to Instagram stories, Riley posted a black and white picture of her late mother and younger brother. 

The picture featured Lisa and Benjamin with Benjamin posing a cheeky expression for the camera while being behind his mother.

Riley captioned the post, “Missing you both (red heart emoji)”.

In an interview with People magazine in December, Riley said, “My mother is certainly an inspiration to me” while declaring her as a “very strong and smart woman”.

She continued, “I was raised by somebody who did their own thing and didn’t really care what other people thought. She was definitely inspirational to me.”

Describing the traumatic experience she went through after her brother’s death, Riley said, “a year of feeling like I was thrown into the ocean and couldn’t swim.”

Despite Tuesday being a highly poignant day for Riley, it also brought a couple of happy events for her in the form of the premier of her directional debut film War Pony’s trailer.

The actress also got her first-ever Emmy nomination for outstanding actress in a limited series for her role in Daisy Jones & The Six.
