This actress has a long history of acting. Her roots are to be found on stage where her parents and siblings took part in local theatrical productions. Interestingly, Cunningham majored in Biology at Illinois University, but we can see her true passion has always been acting.
On stage, she acted in “The Turning of the Screw” and on the silver screen, she made the cast of “Condor”, “Mind Games”, and, of course, “Yellowstone”. She has made a few cameos on other series such as “Timeless” and “NCIS”. The actress is currently married to Mark Anthony Rutledge.
Kathryn Kelly – Emily
“Yellowstone” was the break this actress needed. Born in 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia, Kelly has captured the hearts of audience members with her tender on-screen romance. To this date, the actress has appeared in the TV series “Powers” and “Nashville”. She has also made some cameos in the film “Fist Fight” and “The Originals”.
As said, "Yellowstone" was really when audiences saw some of Kelly’s acting abilities and hopefully, it will not be the last. There is also a British actress called Katherine Kelly. Thank goodness their names are not spelled the same else that would be confusing.
We meet this character in season 1. She starts off as a romantic interest for Jamie Dutton, but don’t think that this is the only purpose of this character. Christina aims to promote liberal policies, except in Bozeman it is harder than it looks, especially since the town is stubbornly stuck in the past.
When Jamie Dutton turns his attention to politics, Christina becomes his political advisor. We’re pretty sure her hate for John Dutton is one of her motives for doing so. Christina adds a new element to the show and her subplots spice things up.
This character adds a unique twist to “Yellowstone” and brings out another side to John Dutton. Raised as a vegan, Summer believes that consuming meat and any product from animals is essentially cruel.
The fact that she is an environmental activist simply means she won’t fit in well with the Bozeman residents, except John who forms some kind of odd relationship with her. Summer organizes an environmental protest, but it only lands her and her fellow protestors in a lot of trouble. This is Bozeman after all.
Piper Perabo – Summer Higgins
If you are a bit older, you would definitely have seen this actress before. One of her major performances to date include “Coyote Ugly”, “Slap Her…She’s French”, “Imagine You and Me” and “The Prestige”. The actress was born in Dallas, Texas, but grew up in New Jersey.
She did her studies in theater and was soon taken by experimental theater. Perabo and director Stephan Kay have been married since 2014. The actress has also taken more interest in activism such as protesting during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing.
