Elvis’s granddaughter is all grown up and looks a lot like ‘the king of rock ‘n’ roll’

Elvis Presley left behind quite the legacy. The Rock ‘n’ Roll superstar passed away in 1977, but he left behind music that would never be forgotten, and a family that still bares his resemblance. Yup. Elvis’s granddaughter is all-grown-up now, and looks a lot like her grandfather.

Riley Keough, 28, is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, who was 9 years old when her father, Elvis, died. She was never able to meet her grandfather. Lisa Marie (whose mom was Priscilla Presley) went on to have a successful career as an actor and musician. But now it’s time for her daughter to have her turn in the spotlight.

Keough (whose dad is musician Danny Keough) appeared on the red carpet of the Golden Globes recently, and that’s when it became apparent that the world had an Elvis-lookalike on their hands.

She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Miniseries or Television Film for her role in “The Girlfriend Experience.” She may not have won the award, but she did win the attention of Elvis fans everywhere. Because even though Keough never met her grandfather, she certainly sees a piece of him every time she looks in the mirror.

It’s hard to point out just one feature that makes her nearly a dead ringer for her late grandfather. Just as Lisa Marie was her father’s mini-me, Keough also has those eyes, that nose, those lips and those cheekbones.

Here’s that hunky Elvis:

See the family resemblance?

Keough recently stepped out at the “It Comes At Night” premiere and, even with her hair dyed a fiery red, there’s no denying the Presley that’s present in her DNA.

Keough’s parents divorced in 1994, and Keough grew up in Santa Monica. She has been married to stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen since 2015.

Especially for Elvis fans, it’s nice to see that his legacy lives on through his music and his family. Because the all-grown-up Keough definitely makes one thing very clear-a small piece of him is still alive and well.
