While Kevin Costner stands out as a certified star in Yellowstone with an Emmy and an Academy Award in Yellowstone and some 40 years of high-profile acting career, it’s actually another actor’s character that’s often picked as a favorite — and Faith Hill joins the ranks a long list of co-stars and viewers who can’t wait for this special personality to hit the big screen.
“Beth,” Hill said without hesitation when asked who her favorite character on Yellowstone was. “Kelly Reilly is extraordinary. The writing for her as a strong female character is amazing and she plays it so brilliantly. She’s amazing – definitely my favorite character.”
The devoted daughter of John Dutton, Beth is an easy-going gun who says and does what she wants: she drinks men under the table, swears like a sailor and passionately protects her father’s country. Perhaps Hill used her as a blueprint for the role of Margaret Dutton in season 1 of 1883, an equally headstrong woman in an age when that was often frowned upon.
“I hugged Margaret. I lived her; I was Margaret,” Hill said. “I was sad to leave her, so she stayed with me for a while.”
Paramount+ is now available in the UK where you can watch all available episodes of Yellowstone and 1883.
