On the hit modern western series “Yellowstone,” Forrie J. Smith plays a character named Lloyd, but he is also a character away from the set.
Having grown up and spent much of his time on a cattle ranch, Smith doesn’t just play a cowboy — he is a cowboy. He is the genuine article when it comes to the cowboy culture, having lived and breathed it all his life. His experience really shines through on “Yellowstone,” as his portrayal of ranch hand Lloyd is as authentic as it gets. Part of being a true cowboy is showing kindness to others and treating people with respect. Smith certainly checks both of those boxes and enjoys meeting and spending time with his fans. He’s also known to sign autographs and pose from pictures with those eager to meet the ‘Yellowstone” star. This was the case on Wednesday as Smith was out to mingle with admirers and fans of his show.
As he often does, Smith took to social media to share a few photos with fans and followers. It is easy to tell that the “Yellowstone” actor genuinely enjoys meeting fans young and old. On Thursday, Smith shared a photo of himself shaking hands with a young fan and said he really enjoyed the experience.
“So much fun!’ Smith writes in the caption space. “Meeting my fans and signing my T-shirts.”
As you can see in the photo, there is a line of fans around the corner that eager to meet Forrie J. Smith. The cowboy and television star is sure to have brightened the day of more than a couple of people with his appearances at the event.
‘Yellowstone’ Season Four Has Been a Bumpy Ride For Lloyd
While Forrie has been enjoying time away from the set, his character, Lloyd, has had a rough go of it so far in season four.
Lloyd has been feuding with fellow “Yellowstone” ranch hand Walker since the end of last season. Their beef started when buckle bunny Laramie moved into the bunkhouse in the third season. Despite their massive age difference, she spent most of last season at Lloyd’s side. After kicking Lloyd to the curb, she began taking up with Walker. The guitar-playing, trouble-making ranch worker rubbed it in Lloyd’s face every chance he got. A prideful man, Lloyd took the abuse till he couldn’t anymore. He fought Walker in a previous episode before Rip Wheeler intervened.
The feud escalated even further in the most recent episode with Lloyd smashing Walker’s guitar and then stabbing in the chest. The two men were put into the “Yellowstone” arena and made to fight until one was left standing. It would be Lloyd the last on his feet until Rip again intervenes and pummels Lloyd.
With just four episodes left, we’ll see if this situation is resolved or continues on.
