Kelly Reilly came on strong on the hit tv show “Yellowstone.” For some, it was the first time they’ve ever seen the strawberry-blonde actress. However, for others, Reilly is a familiar face.
Reilly plays the cut-throat daughter of John Dutton on “Yellowstone.” No matter where she goes, her barb-wired tongue follows. But some of her previous roles are the complete opposite of the one she takes on in the Paramount Network series.
So where have we seen the British actress before?

Reilly first started on the television drama “Prime Suspect” after writing the producers for work.
