Eric Nelsen on ‘1883’

Eric Nelsen is proud to be a cast member of the Yellowstone spinoff. In an interview with Looper, he talks about his time on the show, which unfortunately comes to an end midway through Season 1. His character Ennis passes away in 1883.

Although he is no longer on the show, Nelsen reflects on his time fondly. He also shares his first reactions to reading his final scenes.

“It was a surprise to me after being cast. I only had done, I don’t know, maybe the first episode and Taylor Sheridan was like, “Hey, I’m going to send you the rest, read it, and then let’s talk.” He sends it over, and I get to read it, and I get to [Episode] 5, and I’m crying. I’m bawling. I can’t even believe it. I’m so sad. And then, we talk about it, and it’s seeing where the story goes from there. It all is pivotal in the overall arc of Elsa and her storyline. It really does make sense in the scheme of things, but no, I was just as heartbroken as the people who viewed it.”

He says he misses everything about being on 1883.

“Everything. [Creator] Taylor Sheridan — the universe he creates is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. [With] his attention to detail and authenticity to the way he treats his actors and his brilliance, I truly think he’s TV and film’s greatest gift right now. To be a part of that in any way has been life-changing for me as not only an actor, but as a human. I hope to stay in the Sheridan universe as long as I possibly can.”
