Yellowstone star has theory for how she’s related to the Dutton family

The Yellowstone 1923 actor has spent a lot of time thinking about how her character links to the other characters in the Yellowstone cast.

Best TV series: Yellowstone

The sprawling Yellowstone cast continues to grow as creator Taylor Sheridan expands the TV series further, with spin-offs heading in multiple directions along the Yellowstone timeline. At the centre of it, all is the Dutton family, led by Kevin Costner in the main Yellowstone series.

1923 is a prequel to Yellowstone, which opens the world further with a whole new generation of characters related to the Duttons in Yellowstone.

Some of the family links in the new series are more obvious than others, but star Aminah Nieves recently chatted about how her character might end up being linked to the first family of the Yellowstone ranch.

Rieves plays Native American teenager Teonna Rainwater in 1923 and has spoken to Insider about how her character could tie in to the wider Yellowstone world. It turns out she has a lot of ideas, and Taylor Sheridan isn’t telling her anything.

She said: “I’m not gonna lie to you, I probably have about seven different theories about what happens as a whole. I’m like: ‘Hmm, what if she has a love interest? But what if her love interest is a Dutton? But, no, that wouldn’t work’.”

As for insider knowledge, Rieves admitted she’s got nothing. She prefers it that way, worrying she’d be “a little bit of a Tom Holland” with Yellowstone spoilers if they made their way into her hands.

“They didn’t really tell us anything until each episode got in our hands, and it kept us giddy and hungry to find out more as, as the weeks and months went on. I really like that they do that though, to be honest,” she said.
