Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, Keough, who plays the main character, Daisy Jones, revealed that most of the cast had no musical training.
‘A lot of us had never done the things we were doing on this show,’ said Riley.
‘I had never sang, I’d never played guitar. Suki hadn’t played, you hadn’t played the keys (Suki shakes her head no), you know, the other band members had either never played their instruments, or they hadn’t in a while,’ said Keough.
When speaking about her character, Daisy Jones, Keough said, ‘I play a young singer-songwriter who kind of discovers that she wants to be a singer and a performer.
‘And ultimately joins the band with these guys and girl (taps Waterhouse), and we become Daisy Jones and The Six,’ she said.
Making the film, and learning how to play keyboards inspired Waterhouse to make and release an album of her own, which she is currently promoting on tour.
Speaking about her new career as a musician, Waterhouse said, ‘I think when I started playing Karen, and then we were at sound city studios, and we were making all this music, and I think I got it kind of, I kind of realized that I had to, it was now to, you know, make the record.’
Suki added, ‘I guess like being around all these, you know, empowered, confident women, I was like, it’s time to make the record that I wanna make. And I didn’t really realize that by the time we put out the show, I would’ve done like 70 shows and two tours, and it’s like very much been happening.’
According to an IMDB synopsis, the series’ premise follows, ‘the rise of rock band Daisy Jones and The Six through the ’70s LA music scene on their quest for worldwide icon status.’

During an interview with Insider, Waterhouse opened up about portraying her character, Karen, which she had been officially cast for back in February 2020.
The actress, who released her debut studio album last year in May titled I Can’t Let Go, opened up about fulfilling both her passion of acting and music.
‘I really wanted that project, and maybe subconsciously, it was something to do with my own desire to make a record,’ she explained.
The beauty further expressed her desire to tackle the role by adding, ‘I’ve always desperately wanted to have the life of a musician and I was really drawn to the project because of that. Then my life was kind of melded into these two things, where I recorded my record while prepping for Daisy Jones.’
Before filming officially commenced, Suki revealed that she had to work on her piano skills for her character.
‘That was a huge gift that that studio was open to us for two years and we would go like, three hours a day and work to become a band. That was basically the goal to be like, ‘We could go on tour.’
She later added, ‘From getting the job to where I am now, I kind of don’t even know if those two things would’ve existed without each other. It’s a beautiful gift that I got from playing that character.’
While on set, the British star developed a close friendship with her co-star, Camila, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio until their split last year in 2022.
During a joint interview with Town And Country Magazine Suki expressed that the duo have a very ‘natural friendship.’

Friends: While on set, Waterhouse developed a close friendship with her co-star, Morrone, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio until their split last year in 2022
‘Our friendship evolved [quickly], when you meet someone and start working with them and spend like 12 hours a day together for two years, you know everything about each other’s lives and start dissecting everything, and that bleeds into the show.’
When she is not busy performing on stage for fans or working hard on set, Waterhouse spends downtime with her boyfriend of five years, Pattinson.
She recently gushed about their relationship to The Sunday Times and stated, ‘I’m shocked that I’m so happy with someone for nearly five years.’
‘I’m always incredibly excited when I see his name pop up [on my phone] or even a text, and I think he feels the same about me. We’ve always got so much to say, and I find him hilarious.’
