With a sneak peek of 1883, the Yellowstone prequel starring Tim McGraw and Faith Hill premiering last Sunday, Hill shared with Entertainment Weekly the difficulties of filming in the middle of nowhere.
The country-superstar couple will play the great-grandparents of John Dutton, Kevin Costner’s character on the original show and how they came to own the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the U.S. Hill noted the realism used in filming the story with series creator Taylor Sheridan.
“That’s why so many actors are drawn to Taylor’s writing because he is portraying the story in a way that was lived,” Hill said, eventually adding “You learn how to pick a tree, squat down, and do your business.”
McGraw shared his admiration for his wife of 25 years’ work.
“To see my beautiful wife on horseback, firing guns, and having dirt all over her face, I just sit in awe,” he told the outlet. “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.'”
