In addition to bringing some of the most gripping storylines to date, Yellowstone introduced one of the most beloved characters of the series in Season 3: Teeter. The rough-around-the-edges cowgirl is played by Jennifer Landon.

After her scene-stealing debut in the show, many fans want to learn more about the actress behind the character. Let’s get to know more about her.

Who Is Jennifer Landon?

Jennifer Landon, who often goes by Jen Landon, was born on August 29, 1983, in Malibu, California. She’s the daughter of Hollywood star Michael Landon and Cindy Landon. She earned a BFA in Drama at New York University. While in NYC, Landon studied with the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School.

Jen’s father, Michael Landon, starred in a number of wildly popular TV shows such as Little House on the Prairie and Bonanza. According to Jen, she watches her father’s old on-screen appearances from time to time.

“Sometimes, if I’m feeling sad, I’ll be like, ‘I need a dose of Dad.’ Or if I’m feeling like a real a–hole, I can’t watch the show at all. I’m like, ‘Dad can’t see me like this!’ As if he can see me through the TV,” she said, according to IMDB.

In April of 1991, doctors diagnosed Michael Landon with pancreatic cancer. According to Jen, learning of her father’s illness at the age of 7 held a profound impact on her life. “I was not ready. I wasn’t ready to hear it at all, not at all,” she said.

Furthermore, Jen spoke about her loved ones taking her to say her final goodbyes to her father. “I cried when they did that. They took me over there. I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to! I don’t want to.’ I think there’s a part of me that has not gotten older, right since then.”

Before appearing in Yellowstone, Jen appeared in Animal Kingdom, Chicago Med, and Days of Our Lives.
