In 2010, Riley appeared as a blonde, actually a disguise, in Inception, with Leonardo DiCaprio, written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Also in 2010, The Summer House was released, which starred Riley in the lead role with Robert Pattinson supporting. By the end of the first day of release, it was the number one film on iTunes worldwide and dominated that position for several days. According to their official website, she was recently (2011) cast in the film Quentin Lee's White Frog.
