On Saturday, Yellowstone‘s Kelly Reilly shared why she was a no-show at April’s PaleyFest.
After Reilly posted a photo with Succession‘s Brian Cox to her Instagram feed, a commenter asked why she didn’t attend the Los Angeles event, despite her presence on the original RSVP list, which was announced in mid-January and seemed to confirm her attendance.
Reilly, who plays Beth Dutton in the Paramount Network drama, replied: “I was filming in the UK at the time, and let them know in January I wouldn’t be able to attend. I was sorry to hear my name was still on the list of attendees, as it is unfair to our fans.”
Other members of the Yellowstone team who were confirmed to attend included creator Taylor Sheridan, executive producer David Glasser and cast members Kevin Costner (John Dutton), Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton), Kelsey Asbille (Monica Dutton), Wes Bentley (Jamie Dutton), Gil Birmingham (Thomas Rainwater) and Jacki Weaver (Caroline Warner). All ultimately were absent.
The no-shows added to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the back half of the series’ fifth season, which is slated to air this summer. An exact midseason premiere date has not yet been announced.
In February, a behind-the-scenes dispute surfaced over shooting schedules, with Costner allegedly wanting to limit himself to just one week of shooting on the remaining eight episodes of Season 5. It was reported to be a “source of frustration” for series creator Sheridan, and allegedly was “causing morale problems with his co-stars.” The actor’s attorney later called that report “an absolute lie.”
Thanks Kelly for explaining. Paley should be ashamed.
They used ”Fake news” on the crew. I hope Costner is still in the cast.
Charlie Cale wouldn’t even need her ability to call BS on this one. And even if she is somehow telling the truth, what possible excuse could everyone else have? There’s no way they put that many people on the RSVP list by accident.
Why so hostile? Mistakes happen and this on wasn`t exactly a big deal. An actress was busy filming, so she couldn’t be there, so what?
How was I being hostile? There’s nothing wrong with questioning things instead of just accepting everything at face value. If you choose to believe her then that’s fine, but I personally don’t. And like I said, it still doesn’t explain the rest of the cast’s absence.
I appreciate her answer. As for the rest, I think with everyone not knowing what was happening they decided not to show up because they didn’t have any answers to what fans wanted to know. I don’t know who is at fault here, Paley or the others, but it was a very inconsiderate and unconscionable thing to do to people who had paid good money to see these people. Those who attended deserve a refund and an apology. Just saying…….
Hmmmmm.Not sure that’s the whole story. And honestly the longer the series is off the air, the more I don’t care about it.
If she says she was in the UK, it’s very easy to check.
