‘Yellowstone’ Star Kathryn Kelly Couldn’t Be More ‘Thankful’ About Being on Show

by Leanne Stahulak

“Yellowstone” star Kathryn Kelly made her debut on the show this past week, and she couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity.

It’s not every day you star in cable’s #1 drama, or on a show with as much heart and authenticity as “Yellowstone.” Kelly stars as vet tech Emily down at the Four-Sixes Ranch, who immediately strikes up a connection with Jimmy (Jefferson White).

Emily doesn’t waste time in asking Jimmy out, citing the fact that he’s one of “six guys under the age of 30” who she hasn’t already dated. Or who’s worth the time and energy.

At first, Jimmy, hesitates, especially when Emily asks if he has a girlfriend. Technically, Jimmy and Mia broke up, but is he still thinking about her? Evidently not. He accepts Emily’s offer to grab dinner, starting what looks like a fun and flirty relationship.

But based on the photo the new “Yellowstone” star just posted, it looks like things are just starting to heat up. The photo Kelly posted on Instagram shows Emily and Jimmy sharing an intimate moment, their foreheads pressed together in the dark. They both seem at peace yet fully aware of the other person. It’s one of the more romantic and sweet moments pictured on the show, and we can’t wait to see it (hopefully) during a future episode.

Along with the photo, Kelly posted a heartfelt message about what it means to play Emily on the show.

“Feeling so overwhelmingly grateful for the opportunity to play Emily 🤍,” Kelly begins in her caption. “I have the most welcoming kind co-workers in the world, especially the wonderfully talented Mr. @_jeffersonwhite. I’m so thankful for my community and the @yellowstone family. Thank you for all the loving supportive messages.”

She continued, “Thank you so much to @jensen_dad + @mrsdonuts + everyone at  @stewarttalentlosangeles + @stewarttalentatlanta for fighting for me and believing in me. Quite a beautiful journey this is. 🤍K.”

‘Yellowstone’ Star Kathryn Kelly Opens Up About Her Character, Emily

Earlier this week, “Yellowstone” star Kathryn Kelly talked a bit about her character, Emily, in a behind-the-scenes clip.

“She just kind of commands the space, which I love,” Kelly said about her character. As far as the relationships between her and Jimmy, “They meet, and it just seems to line up in the right way.”

It looks like she and Jefferson White already have a lot of chemistry. When speaking about their first scene together, White said, “So Jimmy first meets Emily to help her collect from stallions. It’s a very serious, big deal industry. To do all that next to Kathryn is such an incredible gift, ’cause she’s an unbelievably talented actor. And she’s getting thrown into this world for the first time, too.”

Looks like the two managed to navigate it together seamlessly. Make sure you catch Jimmy and Emily on the next “Yellowstone” episode this Sunday.
