Yellowstone remains one of the most popular shows on TV today. This is despite it existing on a streaming service in Paramount+ and not network television. The storylines and the acting prove that great shows can make any streaming site worth the buy. Now, actor Kelsey Asbille describes one storyline that she hopes is keeping people coming back for more.
Here is a look at what Kelsey loves most about the show and why it makes it so important.
Kelsey Asbille on her favorite part of Yellowstone
Kelsey Asbille sat down with CBS Mornings and talked about her hit show Yellowstone. Asbille, who originally made her name on One Tree Hill plays Monica Dutton, the daughter-in-law of Kevin Costner’s John Dutton III. That makes her part of the family trying to hold on to their Montana Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. However, this is tough since they have people who want the land, including the Broken Rock Indian Reservation, who want to reclaim the land.
That puts her in a tough spot since Monica is a Native American and has a foot in both the Dutton family and the Broken Rock Indian Reservation’s dilemma. That is where Kelsey’s favorite part of the Yellowstone storyline comes into play. She said she loves how Yellowstone treats the key Native American storylines with respect.
“He puts two groups of people in conversation with each other and uses the entertainment medium to really talk about issues, especially Native issues that matter,” Kelsey said of showrunner Taylor Sheridan. She also appreciates that there are no heroes and villains. The show keeps things ambiguous about the conflict between the two sides.
Gil Birmingham talks Native American representation
Gil Birmingham plays Chief Thomas Rainwater of the Broken Rock Indian Reservation. That puts him as a direct nemesis of John Dutton for the land. Many fans will recognize Birmingham from his role on Twilight as Jacob Black’s dad, Billy Black. In an interview with Town & Country, he also mentioned how he loves the way Yellowstone shows respect for Native American issues.
“It goes to the spirit of, of the Indigenous People; you know, it’s all about surviving,” Birmingham said in the interview. “[If] you were to take into account the history of Indigenous People, just being alive is an accomplishment.”
He went on to say that he is happy that Yellowstone allows him the chance to educate people about these Native American issues that they might not otherwise know about. “We’re very concerned that it’s done authentically, respectfully, but not revealing anything more than we feel comfortable with now because many of these things are sacred.”
