by Samantha Whidden

Just hours before the premiere of Yellowstone’s fourth season, Piper Perabo took to her Twitter account to announce to fans when it comes to the show’s secrets, she won’t be sharing much. 

“I’ve been sworn to secrecy for so long, and I don’t want Rip to take me to the train station,” the Yellowstone castmate declares in the post. “Thank goodness @Yellowstone [premieres] tonight.”

As previously reported, Perabo joined the Yellowstone cast as a recurring character in the show’s fourth season. She is portraying a Portland protester who is against the state-funded police force that protects industrialized farming and the killing of animals. 

Prior to Yellowstone, Perabo was in other hit series, including Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, Notorious, Covert Affairs, Law & Order, and House. 

Piper Perabo Shares More Details About Her ‘Yellowstone’ Character

During a recent interview with Esquire, Piper Perabo discusses what it was like the play an environmental activist on the set of Yellowstone. “I was already a huge fan of the show,” Perabo explained. “This is the first time I’ve ever been on a show that I was a fan of. Which is pretty weird.”

With her already interest in Yellowstone, Perabo noted she already knew all the rooms and locations. As well as the fields and horses. “I’m kind of intimately aware of all the turns of the character. Sometimes when you jump into a show, you have to go back and watch everything from the beginning. So that you know the history.”

Despite her character being considered as an antagonist, Perabo stated that she’s excited to get into the world of Yellowstone. But she admits, it’s terming to come in on the “wrong side” of the Duttons. 

“That was the choice though,” the Yellowstone castmate declared. “It was like you cannot do it or you can come in on the wrong side of the Duttons. But I was like, ‘Well, I just want to get it there. So let me try my chances.”

Piper Perabo Talks Snagging the ‘Yellowstone’ Role 

While continuing her chat with Esquire, Piper Perabo reveals that her husband, Steven Kay, is actually one of the executive producers of Yellowstone. “He and I had dinner with Taylor Sheridan and his wife, Nicole, at the time when I had just been arrested for protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and it came up over dinner.”

She then recalled Sheridan becoming interested in her story about civil disobedience. She also talked about the process of protesters putting their bodies on the line for a cause they care about. “And we ended up talking about it for a long time after dinner. Then the next season came around and he called with this part.”
