“I don’t want to spoil this, but the producers thought it would be funny if he was in that scene,” Keough, 33, said. Entertainment tonight. “They were like, ‘Do you want Ben to do this?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s hilarious.’
While the actress didn’t reveal much about the cameo, she did mention how “exciting” filming the show was after more than a year of musical rehearsals.
Keough plays a singer on the show, while in real life she comes from a musical family that follows her late grandfather King of Rock and Roll and then her late mother Lisa Marie Presley.
“I mean, it was amazing because I’m into music and we had been rehearsing for a year and a half,” she said. “So the moment we got on stage it was very exciting and we were all excited to be able to try out what we had been practicing for so long and it was wonderful.”
Sam Claflin, who plays band singer Billy Dunne alongside Keough, had the praise, sharing how the two learned to be rockstars for the first time together, despite Keough’s musical roots.
“Truly, I couldn’t have asked for a better teammate,” said the hunger games actor, 36, told People. “Even though she had that reputation in her family genes, she didn’t have much musical experience herself, so the two of us could lean on that way.”
He continued, “She just never carried that pressure with her. You wouldn’t know. And honestly, I kind of had to remember that his grandfather is Elvis Presley. It’s honestly just a joy to work with her, like a true friend and someone I really care about.
