1923 Images Reveal First Look at Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren in Yellowstone Prequel
The first look at 1923 has been revealed. Going back a century, the series features Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as they explore an untold chapter in the history of Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. The series comes from Taylor Sheridan and follows the limited series spin-off 1883which was released to great acclaim on Paramount+ last year.
1923as the title suggests, jumps forward in time about 40 years from the events of 1883. The Dutton family is now led by Jacob Dutton (Ford), brother of Tim McGraw’s James Dutton, and his wife, Cara (Mirren). Ford and Mirren also shared some details about their characters in a new interview with Vanity Fair, which released some first images from the upcoming series.
“It’s the silverback,” Ford says of Jacob. “He is responsible for this branch of the family. They are two people who have a very strong bond with each other and who face really complicated circumstances.
Mirren added of Cara: “You need someone who is capable of making decisions and hopefully making the right decisions, but at least making a decision and accepting it, in d “In other words, a leader. That’s what propelled them into this position of running the ranch, running the family, being the linchpin around which, at this very moment, the family revolves.
Cara also has an Irish accent, and it was a choice made by Mirren to add depth to her character. She imagines Cara as an immigrant and felt it was important to portray the character that way rather than giving her a typical Modern American accent.
“The great Irish immigration to America, because of the Potato Famine, happened at the end of the 19th century,” Mirren said. “It works perfectly chronologically for Cara. She’s now in her late 60s, we imagine. So she would have come, I think, as a young woman from Ireland. I think that’s one of the amazing things. The people who have arrived, and are still arriving, are people with enormous resilience and enormous courage and independence.
