Faith Hill and Isabel May during the 1883 Press Day from the Wynn Las Vegas
Ever wonder where Beth Dutton gets her fierce, kick ass personality? We may just get an idea from the Yellowstone prequel 1883. There is no doubt it’s a past trait of the Dutton women as Faith Hill plays Margaret Dutton, the mother of Isabel Dutton, played by Isabel May.
1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land – Montana.
The five time Grammy winner began her career in the early 90s placing her on the country music Billboards right away. Faith Hill reached International recognition during 1998’s third album Faith and 1999 fourth album, Breath. She’s been heard in blockbuster films like Maverick, Practical Magic and Pearl Harbor with There You’ll Be. In 2004 she made her debut on the big screen in The Stepford Wives, followed by Dixieland.
The young 21 year old Isabel May made her debut in Age of Summer. She has been a television favorite with leading roles in television series like Netflix’s Alexa & Katie and CBS Young Sheldon. In between she’s worked on films like, Let’s Scare Julie and Run Hide Fight. Soon she will be seen in Prime Video’s I Want You Back with Scott Easwood and The Book & Back.
With the release of 1883 on Paramount+ I was able to participate during the roundtable for Faith Hill and Isabel May. The lovely ladies talked about their characters and spoke highly about each other. In addition, to how they are representing women in this series, about having cowboy bootcamp and more.
1883 first two episodes are available today, followed by a new episode every Sunday on Paramount+
