Faith Hill and Tim McGraw Recently Expressed their Gratitude for their Roles on ‘1883’

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Faith Hill told Deadline. “The Duttons are a formidable family, and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honored to work with Taylor and his entire team.”

McGraw is equally as excited.

“This is truly a dream job. Taylor has found a way of storytelling that brilliantly creates these epic dramas and family sagas with so much depth and creativity,” he explained to the publication. “The Duttons are tremendous characters, and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life. As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this, and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew

1883 will also star Sam Elliott as the Dutton’s guide across the plains. Elliott is known for his work on A Star is Born, Parks and Rec, and many other films and series. He’s looking forward to 1883 because of the fact that it’s a western.

“It all starts with the writing, and Taylor Sheridan is a brilliant writer,” said Elliott. “I think the western genre speaks clearly to both of us. The classic struggles of man against man, man against nature and man against himself. It’s all there, in 1883, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

1883 is a part of a growing Yellowstone universe. Meanwhile, another series, Mayor of Kingstown, is also in the works.
