When it comes to the most promising character of Yellowstone 1883, the role played by actor Sam Elliot deserves a clear highlight. While the series and the franchise have developed a huge fanbase, not everyone is a fan of classic western drama.
Yellowstone is presently one of the most loved television series as it has garnered the love of millions of fans. With its ever-expanding universe, the franchise is cementing its position as one of the best western dramas. It has surely blown the doors of television ratings. Recently, the 1883 series has created several records for the franchise grabbing the limelight on social media.
However, not everyone is a fan of Taylor Sheridan’s projects under the shade of the Yellowstone franchise. Recently actor Sam Elliot revealed a big statement on Yellowstone. Here is everything we know.
Sam Elliot Reveals Why He Can’t Stand Yellowstone
Sam Elliot plays the role of Shea Brennan in Yellowstone’s hit show 1883. Shea is a super-handsome Pinkerton Agent who has navigated immense bad times in the past. He had a wife named Helen and a lovely daughter. However, he lost them as they died due to smallpox.
Sam Elliot played the role of Shea Brenan perfectly and he racked up a lot of praises for his flawless performance. However, in a recent interview, the actor revealed his call on the franchise.
Sam may be a valuable part of the 1883 series, but sadly he is not a fan of spinoffs of the original series, Yellowstone.
While the actor has been under the limelight for playing the role of the tough cowboy in the 1883 series, Sam Elliot revealed his thoughts on Yellowstone.
He said, “I am not a Yellowstone fan. I don’t even watch Yellowstone. But I love Kevin Costner. There are a bunch of good people on the cast, a few of them I have worked with before. Nothing against any of them, but it’s just too much like f—ing ‘Dallas’ or something for more.”
He further added, “Too much of that for more.” Sam even compared Yellowstone to the long-running 80s soap opera.
His statement has shocked the fans, and this is not the first time Sam passed negative comments on Yellowstone. A few days back, Sam revealed in an interview that the show ‘tainted’ the spinoff, 1883.
He said, “On some level, I can’t stand it.” Sam further added, “Because I think 1883 stands alone and will. Once it comes out, people are gonna say, “Oh, yeah, The only connection there is that it got John Dutton to Montana.”
