Yellowstone’s prequel 1883 stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who just celebrated 25 years of marriage. In addition, the couple has toured together, even before they officially became a couple, singing on stage together.
This means that over the years, they know each other well enough to give the other some signals when things are not going well. That sort of silent communication has now translated into successfully navigating their roles in the series that Taylor Sheridan created.
How has Faith Hill’s influence made Tim McGraw’s performance better?
Tim McGraw Shares How Faith Hill Keeps Him Straight
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have done a lot of things as a couple, including starring together in Yellowstone: 1883. McGraw, who recently spoke to Fox News, reveals that this sort of special intimacy means that his wife has subtly let him know when he is not performing at his very best.
In the middle of a scene, there are little gestures that she’ll give me, like when she knows that I’m off track a little bit, she’d give me that look to set me back straight.
Turns out, Faith will also do similar types of gestures when they are performing on stage.
Just like when we’re singing on stage and I’m singing flat on my harmony part. I’ll get that look from her and I know I better straighten up because I’m not doing this well enough. So we definitely have that sort of communication between us.
It seems that performing together, whether with music or in a series, their long relationship allows them to cue the other when things are not going great. However, they did make some ground rules before they ever began filming,
Faith Hill Reveals ‘Ground Rules’ In Filming 1883
Although Faith Hill and Tim McGraw had acted before starring in Yellowstone: 1883, they had never worked together. That means the real-life husband and wife have never played a similar role on screen.
Hill told People that they made up some “ground rules” before they started shooting the series. “We have made it a point not to work on our scenes together until we’re on set.”
Why did they decide they could not practice lines at home? She explained that “It’s important that we react to one another naturally as characters, not as husband and wife.”
Therefore they decided that they didn’t want blurred lines between reality and their series. They didn’t want to portray their personal relationship on screen. Instead, they wanted to play their characters with the integrity in which they were written.
Cowboy Camp Before Filming 1883
Before they filmed any 1883 scenes, they all attended cowboy camp. This included riding, roping, and learning to drive the wagon.
However, neither Tim nor Faith have revealed if the other was a backseat driver when filming.
Yellowstone: 1883 airs on Sundays, on Paramount+.
