This is one of the youngest members of the “Yellowstone” cast. Starting back in 2018, Merrill has grown up in front of the audience’s eyes spanning four seasons. He is also one of the few Dutton characters to only be played by one actor.
“Yellowstone” has introduced Merrill to audiences, and he has shown a great acting range, especially as the character has to contend with more and more. The actor was born in California and had some other credentials to add to his acting career including “This is Us” and “We All Got Up to Dance”.
Finn Little – Carter Dutton
This actor who looks so comfortable around horses, horse stalls, and ranch life in fact is not American. He is from Australia. It would make sense if he were from the outback, but actually, he hails from Brisbane and he has added several acting credentials to his resume.
When he was 14 years old, he had already had parts in “Storm Boy”, “Angel of Mine”, and “Those Who Wish Me Dead”, all receiving fair ratings. He has also been featured in numerous short movies.
The Duttons have a habit of adopting children of washed-up individuals who severely neglect their children. This tendency continues with the second generation as Beth Dutton decides to adopt Carter Dutton.
Beth may have saved him from being the son who abuses illicit substances, but living on the Yellowstone ranch proves to have some challenges, and having Beth as a mother cannot always be easy for Carter. However, the little Dutton does find his feet. He develops a knack for poker and his attraction to Halie creates a sweet subplot.
Growing up as a Dutton and on the Yellowstone ranch, we see a different perspective of the shenanigans and violence on the ranch. John Dutton and Tate spend time and start to bond after Kayce makes the decision to include his father in Tate’s life. Except that Tate has to grow up a bit too quickly.
In fact, Tate faces a very rocky growing up one where he suffers from PTSD from a young age. He is also personally conflicted as his mother is a Native American and his father is a Dutton. It is not easy for this fellow.
Hassie Harrison – Laramie
This Texas-born actress is the perfect fit for a modern western. Many of the actress’s credentials are based in a similar setting including “Hart of Dixie”, “Tacoma FD”, and “The Iron Orchard”.
The actress has also starred in the horror TV anthology, “Southbound” and the science fiction “A.X.L” showing she is starting to branch out. As said, Harrison is just starting to spread her wings so “Yellowstone” was one of her major productions to this date, but we’re sure to see more of this Dallas actress.
