Since then, Keough has appeared in The Good Doctor (2011), Jack & Diane (2012), and The Girlfriend Experience (2016), and in 2022, she made her directorial debut with the film War Pony.

Sam Claflin is to step into the shoes of Billy Dunne, the iconic rockstar and frontman to Daisy Jones & the Six. Claflin’s most notable roles include Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), Will Traynor in Me Before You (2016), and Richard Sharp in Adrift (2018).

Camila Morrone will take on the role of Camila Dunne, the wife of Billy Dunne. Morrone is best known for portraying Jordan Kersey in Death Wish (2018), Jessie in Never Goin’ Back (2018), and Ruby in Valley Girl (2020).

In addition to Daisy and Billy, the band members of Daisy Jones & the Six include lead guitarist and brother to Billy, Graham Dunne, played by Will Harrison, bassist Eddie Roundtree, played by Josh Whitehouse, drummer Warren Rhodes, played by Sebastian Chacon, and keyboardist Karen Sirko, played by Suki Waterhouse.

Do the actors really sing in Daisy Jones and the Six?

The actors portraying the members of the ‘70s band Daisy Jones & the Six were hard at work bringing their characters to life.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Keough recalled sending in a video of herself singing a song from Fleetwood Mac and being told that if she wanted the role of Daisy, she would have to learn to belt. Keough reached that goal with help from a vocal coach during the pandemic, bringing her one step closer to becoming the sensational icon Daisy Jones. 

Keough was not the only one who had to take steps toward becoming a full-fledged rockstar. Before Daisy Jones & the Six, Claflin had never played the guitar, let alone picked one up, nor did he have the vocal experience needed to portray Billy. Claflin had his work cut out for him, but with help from vocal coaches and guitar teachers, he was able to transform into rock legend Billy Dunne.
