How could a show that tells us the chronicles of so many charterers whose lives are intertwined not have flashbacks? What would give us insight into their pasts? Good thing “Yellowstone” knows better.
In the flashbacks of young Beth, we get to see what this fierce woman used to be like as a child and a teenager. In season five we get to see Beth and Rip as teenagers, and we learn all about the way she acted the day before she went to college. You can bet it was wild.
Angela Blue Thunder
Only avid watchers will remember Angela Blue Thunder. Appearing only in four episodes, Angela was hired by Thomas Rainwater as a business consultant. Her job was to help Thomas in his fight against threats to both Yellowstone Dutton Ranch and Broken Rock Reservation. Her motives and agenda remained mysterious and unclear.
While she was gone for the entirety of season four, she came back during the show's fifth season. We wish we would have gotten to see more of her, even if just because of her really cool name.
Q'orianka Kilcher — Angela Blue Thunder
Q'orianka Waira Qoiana Kilcher is more than just an emerging actress. She's also a singer, a dancer-choreographer, and an activist. She's best known for her roles in 2005's "The New World" where she played Pocahontas and 2009's "Princess Kaiulani" where she played the titular role.
The multi-talented star was born in Germany. When she was two her family moved to Kapaʻa, Hawaii. Her mother is an American activist of German descent while her father is amongst the Indigenous people of Peru.
Kylie Rogers – Young Beth Dutton
This young and promising American actress was born in 2003, but her tender age has not stopped her from already booking many roles. On TV, you might have seen her on "Days of Our Lives," and "Private Practice."
In 2020 she booked a main role in Apple TV's "Home Before Dark." At the age of 10, she booked a role in the science fiction drama "The Whispers" which was produced by Steven Spielberg.
Considered a leader to the Native American people in the Broken Rock Indian Reservation, Rainwater’s plans involve getting the Native American people’s land back the legal way, using a casino as the cash cow that will fund his operation.
For many years Rainwater believed he was Mexican, though he never really fitted in, and something always felt wrong. When he came of age, he learned that he had been adopted and was actually of Native American ancestry. Rainwater’s ambition makes him a rival to the Duttons but many audience members can see where the man is coming from.
