“Yellowstone” star Kelly Reilly makes quite a bit per episode of the hit Paramount Network series. So much so that she is reportedly a millionaire.
So Reilly rakes in a healthy income, albeit not quite as much as co-star and executive producer Kevin Costner. He reportedly makes $500,000 per episode.
Kelly Reilly Shares What She Loves About Playing Beth
In a recent interview, Reilly shared her favorite things about playing Beth Dutton. As anyone who has watched “Yellowstone” knows, Beth is not for those with delicate sensibilities. She tells it like she sees it – often profanely – and she acts fearlessly.
“Honestly, and I know actors say this all the time, it is a feast for me,” Reilly told Men’s Health this autumn. “It’s such an honor to be able to get closer to the edge of things when Beth gets to the point where you’re like, ‘Oh, that’s a bit too much.’ ‘Oh, should I just stop on that a little bit?’ That’s when I’m in the sweet spot of where Beth exists.”
“If I step off it, then that’s not true to who it is,” she added. “I can do several different takes where I can soften something, or I can really go full pelt at something to give them options in the edit. Ultimately, they always pick the harder version, the tougher version, the more explicit.”
Does Beth Survive to See Season 4 of ‘Yellowstone’?
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the Season 4 premiere and want to find out what happens for yourself, read no further.
As Season 3 of “Yellowstone” ended, Beth had just disappeared into the explosion that rocked her office after her assistant opened a suspicious package. And it was a doozy, raising questions about whether Beth would survive to see Season 4.
Who could be responsible for the attack on Beth? The Market Equities people had just pledged to treat the Dutton situation “like an oil deal in Yemen.” But the Duttons have a long list of enemies. And it’s looking like the attacks on the Duttons were even more extensive than what we saw in the Season 3 finale.
Luckily, as the Season 4 premiere revealed, Beth not only lived, she walked out of her office in one piece. She was caked in dust and blood. But she was alive. And “Yellowstone” fans were surely breathing a sigh of relief, because Beth has become a fan favorite among all but the most devoted Jamie (Wes Bentley) partisans.
Now it’s just a matter of time before the Duttons take revenge.
