Our favorite little cowboy from Yellowstone is back on social media to wish one of his fellow co-stars a happy birthday.
If you are a fan of Yellowstone, then you know and love Brecken Merrill just like we do. The young actor plays Tate Dutton, the curious and defiant son of Casey and Monica Dutton. Of course, that also makes him the grandson of Kevin Costner’s character, John Dutton.
On Sunday, Merrill went online to Instagram to wish his co-star, Jen Landon, a happy birthday. Back in season 3, Yellowstone decided to shake things up by adding a daring new ranch hand in Teeter, who is played by actress Jen Landon. Before that, Landon was best known for her role as Gwen Norbeck Munson in the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. As a matter of fact, she even won three consecutive Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
However, she was definitely ready for her new role on the Dutton family ranch. And it seems like she has quickly made a new friend in Brecken Merrill. The little man behind Tate Dutton wished Landon a happy 38th birthday on Sunday. He also included a photo of the two in a makeup trailer.
“It’s #yellowstonetv Sunday!” Merrill captioned the photo. “Happy birthday to this cool [chick] @thejenlandon #duttonranch #bunkhouseboys #letsgotowork #bts #happybirthday #horsingaround”
“Miss you!!!” Landon responded to Merrill’s post.
Another fan commented about how they hope to see more of Teeter and Tate together when season 4 airs in November.
“What a terrific pair! Hopefully, we’ll see more of Teeter and Tate together in Season 4. The way Season 3 ended, the two of you could be running the Yellowstone! Happy birthday, Jen!!”
‘Yellowstone’ Actor Turned 13 in June
Yes, Brecken Merrill just wished his co-star Jen Landon a 38th birthday. And he usually gives shout-outs to others on their birthdays as well. But the Yellowstone star just celebrated a birthday himself not all that long ago. He turned 13 years old back on June 20.
Now, there’s no doubt that Yellowstone fans who have been here since the very beginning will always see Brecken Merrill as little Tate Dutton. But now he is officially a teenager, and he continues to grow up right before our eyes. And we’ll see just how many more seasons of Yellowstone there will be. But until we know for sure, there is no telling just how much we’ll see Brecken Merrill grow up.
Just like his character on the show, Merrill is definitely not shy when it comes to sharing updates on social media. Despite just becoming a teenager, he already has more than 21,000 followers on Instagram. You can follow his account if you would like to see updates about the show.
