Faith Hill had an eye-opening — and life-changing — experience playing Margaret Dutton on 1883, the hit Paramount+ prequel to Yellowstone.
The show famously put its actors in real-life experiences simulating the lifestyle of Western frontier families from the 19th century, and though the prep work was grueling, Faith says she’s glad she did it — and she wishes everyone else could, too.
“I wish every single person had the opportunity to live off the land,” Faith says in a new interview with Gold Derby. “There’s something about being outside and working outside and cooking and getting that connection to the earth. There’s nothing like it.”
Faith loved working on 1883 so much that she admits she went through “a couple of weeks of just complete depression” after saying goodbye to the character of Margaret.
In addition to giving her the chance to embrace a completely new kind of life, Faith’s experience with 1883 was special for another reason, too: It gave her a chance to co-star with her husband Tim McGraw, who plays James Dutton on the show.
