Of all the tremendous actors dotting the cast of “Yellowstone,” perhaps none have boosted their careers more than Kelly Reilly. On “Yellowstone,” Kelly Reilly plays Beth Dutton, a force of nature capable of demolishing all who oppose her. Some of her other notable roles include the “Sherlock Holmes” films and hit television series “True Detective” among many others. It is “Yellowstone,” however, that has taken her career to new heights and it isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
Reilly is well compensated for her “Yellowstone” work, reportedly making around $200,000 for each episode, according to Cinemablend.com. That amount puts her in the same category as co-stars like Cole Hauser, Wes Bentley, Luke Grimes and Kelsey Asbille. Kevin Costner, who plays the lead role of John Dutton, reportedly pulls in around $500,000 per episode. “Yellowstone” fans say that is money well spent as the show’s cast is spectacular with each actor playing their role quite well. With production for the fifth season coming up, it is possible that salaries may look different in a new season.
There was only one major death to a primary “Yellowstone” character, the cast should return intact for the fifth season. With Garrett Randall taking a bullet from his own son, Jamie Dutton, actor Will Patton isn’t likely to return. Of course, with “Yellowstone” no character is safe which means none of the actors can be assured of anything past this season.
‘Yellowstone’ Star Kelly Reilly Has a Busy Season Four
Beth Dutton had a very eventful fourth season with twists and turns seemingly around every corner. The first twist came early in the season when she had a chance encounter with “Yellowstone” newcomer, Carter. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight but seeing the two loners strike up a quick bond was one of season four’s highlights. With Carter now firmly on the ranch and living with Beth and Rip, he could become a bigger part of the show.
Speaking of Rip and Beth, the two love birds finally tied the knot in the very last episode of season four. It wasn’t the spectacle “Yellowstone” Ranch wedding many might’ve hoped for. However, the wedding was very much the style of Rip and Beth.
Beth’s biggest moment of the season came when she discovered that Garrett Randall was behind the attack on her family. She uses this information to gain substantial leverage over her brother, Jamie Dutton. This is a storyline that will continue to build in the “Yellowstone” future.
