How Kelsey Asbille really feels about working with Kevin Costner at Yellowstone

Never go against the family… the Dutton family, that is.

“It’s not easy being married to a Dutton, that’s for sure,” actress Kelsey Asbille told television show host Kelly Clarkson in June during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show about her role as the “Yellowstone” staple Monica Dutton. “We started a kind of Romeo and Juliet. And now we’re really like a survival movie,” she explained of the dynamic between Monica and her on-screen husband, Kayce Dutton, played by Luke Grimes. “Because he’s intense—old dad,” Clarkson later interjected into the conversation about Monica’s impressive father-in-law, John Dutton, played by actor, producer and director Kevin Costner. “Ooh. Yes. He’s intense. Yes”, Asbille answered. But what does Asbille really think of working on set with the award-winning actor? And what did she learn from the heavy hitter actor on the set of everyone’s new favorite neo-western series? The answers might surprise you…

Kelsey Asbille is ‘forever impressed’ by Kevin Costner.

“The man is a living legend,” Asbille gushed about her Yellowstone co-star during a pre-season 5 interview with Taste of Country. “He’s a true movie star and they don’t make her like him anymore. So, I think there’s an aspect of, you’re constantly… I think forever struck by the stars is a good way of saying it,” she confessed. “He’s had a long career but he still loves it, he’s so passionate about what he does. And I think that’s really contagious,” revealed Asbille. “He’s such a team player, you immediately feel comfortable working with him.” She added, “It’s really been such a pleasure. To be all there and to be at the table with Kevin… I think there’s a part of this job that’s always going to feel very surreal.”

Luckily for Kelly Asbille, even when she was extremely impressed with the stars, she could still learn a thing or two from industry giant Kevin Costner.

“The lesson I really learned came from the first, I think the first day of shooting with him. And he just said – I think Luke was there too – and he had this nice way of just speaking like we’re all here to serve the story, and also to support – you know, because most of us are there are, we’re there every day, but especially the people who come just for a day and like us can really be there to support them in the service of the story,” she told U Interview. “I thought it was really nice and something that kind of stuck in my mind,” she added.
