‘Yellowstone’ Star Finn Little Reflects on Incredible Experience on the Show

by Liz Holland

“Yellowstone” star Finn Little joined the cast in Season 4 and quickly became a fan favorite. Little plays Carter on the show, who is a lot like a young Rip Wheeler. Beth meets Carter outside the hospital. She had been visiting John after the shooting that happened in Season 3’s finale,  but Carter’s reason for being at the hospital is even bleaker. He’s waiting for his father to die, so Beth kind of becomes his guardian. However, Carter heavily disrespects Beth, which leads to Rip taking Carter in under his wing. Rip is meant to set him on the right path, but he may not be the best person to do so. 

Fans seem to think Carter was the perfect addition to Season 4. One watcher of the show commented on a Reddit thread, “Yeah he really seems like a combination of RIP and Beth. The child they never had. All aggressive and wild like Rip…. And that speech he gave his dying father was word for word what Beth would have said. She recognized that and that’s why she fell for the kid.”

Finn Little Looks Back

It seems like Finn Little had an amazing time portraying Carter. The young actor took to Instagram on Saturday to reflect on his experience on the show. He shared a snap of him on set, alongside a heartfelt caption filled with thank yous.

The caption reads, “THANKS EVERYONE for all the support you have shown “Carter” over the last 10 weeks. It has been a ride! …. trying to smoke, hospitals, black eyes, rides in the back of the sheriffs car, car rides with Beth, truck rides with Rip, hamburger/tuna helper, giving Rip the bird roadside, horseshit, shopping trips – that turned to shit, sleeping in the barn, learning about horses, learning to rope, saying sorry, new clothes, dinner in the lodge, latin lessons 😜🤣cake with steak, more horseshit, learning to ride with John Dutton (sir, I mean Sir) and playing poker with the crazy Bunkhouse Boys and ‘Peter’ (I mean Teeter!) ❤️You’ll LOVE the season 4 finale! Buckle Up! Thanks again!”

Actor Talks Working With Real Cowboys

It seems like Little had a great experience on set. The actor shared some of his experiences on set in a November promotional video for the season. “On my first day, I was taken to props, where I was given a selection of knives to choose for Carter. Everyone just said, ‘Welcome to Yellowstone.’”, Little shares. He also loved working with real cowboys on set. The actor explains,  “It was fun working with real cowboys because it’s a show about cowboys. But it’s [also] nice to have real cowboys on so they really know what they’re doing, and they know the proper ways to do it. I’ve really enjoyed every moment of it, and it feels nice to be a part of something big.”

You can watch Finn Little as Carter in the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone airing tonight, January 2nd.
