- Kevin Costner plays John Dutton on the hit series for Paramount Network. Yellowstone.
- The show concludes season three and begins filming the fourth in Montana.
- The actor admits spending so much time away from home is difficult, especially his seven children and wife Christine Baumgartner.
Kevin Costner is the first to admit this filming Yellowstone is not always what it seems.
Only last year did he admit that working on the show was “not an easy adjustment” for him. Initially, Yellowstone Costner was introduced as a “long movie”
At first, he struggled with making a TV show – but now that he’s three (almost four) seasons down, he realized he was doing that Yellowstone isn’t too different from movies. “The work is the same for me,” he says Good housekeeping. “The days are the same. They are always long, they start early and they go late.”
In many ways, John Dutton continues to play Yellowstone is an act of juggling for Costner. While he loves filming the show in the heart of Bitterroot Valley (“I like that kind of story,” he says.), That takes him away from his family, too. The 65-year-old actor, who has been married to Christine Baumgartner since 2004, has seven children – three of them are younger than 13 years. “It takes me away from home. I’m going home every moment I can,” he explains. “But this year we’re only shooting in Montana, which makes it almost impossible to go home. If you work on two planes, it’s a full day trip. If it’s a full day trip home, it’s a full day trip back.”
No matter how far he is from home, Costner’s children are at the center of everything he does. When he received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards 2015, he thanked his children for all the sacrifices they made: “All the years, all the tears that passed in airports when me Another film made me on my way, their brave faces trying to understand when I would be gone and when I would come home, hugs that never wanted to end. My kids have always been bigger than the movies. They have always been more important. Because of them, I could do what I love. “
Even if the show runs for a few more years (the show’s creator hinted that the series will last six seasons), he assures us that he will find a way to make things work. In fact, he has “plans for how I want to play the second half of my career” – and Yellowstone is certainly part of it.
