Kelly Reilly’s Beth Dutton has become a fan favorite on “Yellowstone.” So naturally, many fans are curious about Reilly’s story. Where does she come from? Also, what is her family like?
Though you wouldn’t know it from Beth’s way of speaking, the “Yellowstone” star is British. She was born in Chessington, Surrey, per IMDb. And she has one older brother, Neil, who is a professional golfer.
While Reilly was growing up, her mother reportedly worked as a hospital receptionist, and her father, Jack, was a police officer. The actress’s grandparents are Irish.
‘Yellowstone’ Star Is Married to a Financier
Reilly’s husband is an American-raised financier named Kyle Baugher. The couple got engaged and married in 2012, per Country Living.
All of Reilly’s early-career stage acting sort of got in the way of her relationships, she told the Evening Standard in 2015. But by that time, she was happily married, so she jumped back into theatre with the play “Old Times.”
“I hadn’t done a play in eight years,” Reilly said then. “I was doing play after play after play in London, and I couldn’t manage a great personal life and do a play. Now, I’m married and happy and content so I thought it was time to see if I could get that balance back.”
And in a 2018 Instagram post, Reilly shared a picture of Baugher along with the couple’s dog. “Out west again with my loves,” she posted.
Reilly’s Character Got Caught Up in Epic Season 3 Cliffhanger
Beth fans have been on the edge of their seats ever since the Season 3 cliffhanger left their favorite Dutton’s life hanging in the balance. Toward the end of the season finale, Beth’s assistant opened a suspicious package, setting off an explosion that engulfed Beth’s whole office.
(Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen Season 4 yet and don’t want to know what happens, read no further.)
In Season 4, we learn that Beth survived the blast, and in fact managed to walk out of her office building and coolly bum a cigarette from a bystander, albeit covered in bloody burns and dust.
But Beth had another ordeal in store for her: waiting at the hospital for her father to recover. While there, she struck up a friendship with a wayward youth, Carter (Finn Little), who was soon orphaned. Left with no options, he followed Beth home. Can she take him in and raise him as her own? Rip (Cole Hauser) has his doubts. Either way, Beth’s new situation should give Reilly an opportunity to play a different side of Beth.
That will be something to watch in Season 4, for Beth fans if not for Jamie (Wes Bentley) fans. And by the looks of it, Reilly is charging into the new season full-throttle.
