Faith Hill Had To Wear Corset In Yellowstone Prequel 1883
Anyone who saw the Yellowstone prequel 1883 first look trailer during the Season 4 premiere got a sneak peek of the spinoff show. The prequel, 1883, is the Yellowstone origin story. This series is about James Dutton (McGraw), and Margaret Dutton (Hill), as they go from Texas to Montana on a dream.
Because this has been created by Taylor Sheridan, there are some authentic details that each actor needs to abide by. That includes Faith Hill wearing a corset while she rode a horse, western style. She told Entertainment Weekly that “Although it looks amazing, it’s terrible. I think I have a few ribs floating around in my body.”
She continued to explain the difficultly of filming. “This is real work. I was raised by Edna Earl and Ted Perry, and they believed the best way to teach a child was to get your hands in the dirt. That’s basically this in a nutshell. I think so many actors are drawn to Taylor’s writing because he is portraying the story in a way that was lived. I gained so much respect for cowboys.”
As for doing her business, she admits that she quickly became “quite comfortable” with the cast and crew. “You learn how to pick a tree, squat down, and do your business.” In a corset to boot.
Tim McGraw Got to Shoot Gun, ‘Proud’ Of Wife’s Skills
One thing is for sure when Tim McGraw filmed the Yellowstone prequel, 1883, he quickly gained a lot of admiration for his fierce wife. “To see my beautiful wife on horseback, firing guns, and having dirt all over her face, I just sit in awe. She’s a strong woman, anyway. Taylor said early on to me, ‘Man, you’ll just get on that horse. You’re not scared of anything.’ I said, ‘I’m scared of one thing. She’s right over there.'”
We will have to watch the series to find out if his character, James Dutton feels that same sort of admiration for his wife Margaret.
