During an interview with PEOPLE in December, Riley explained how his titular Daisy Jones and the six character reminded him of his mother.
“My mom is definitely an inspiration to me,” Keough said at the time, calling Lisa Marie a “very strong, smart woman.” She added, “I was raised by someone who did her own thing and didn’t really care what other people thought. She really inspired me.”
The year before, Riley said The New York Times about the difficult time she went through in the months following Benjamin’s death. She described it in part as “a year where I felt like I was thrown into the ocean and didn’t know how to swim.”
In October, Riley remembered Benjamin on what would have been his 30th birthday, sharing a photo of herself and her younger brother wearing matching blue striped outfits as kids.
“You would be 30 today. Happy birthday my best friend, my angel,” the actress wrote in her caption. “This world is strange without you ❤️”
