'Yellowstone' Star Forrie J Smith Talks Being a Cowboy on TV & in Real Life — inside His Life

The actor who plays Lloyd on the award-winning Paramount series that shows the life of cowboys in the digital era. His successful performance has already won the approval of the public and become part of a regular cast.

When Forrie J. Smith got the offer to work on Taylor Sheridan's project it was supposed to be a cowboy movie. Many years have passed since the time when Westerners occupied the movie and TV screens.

The film becomes a television series, with the renowned and award-winning actor Kevin Costner at the head of the cast. Smith plays Llyod, the foreman, and henchman of the patriarch of the family that owns the largest ranch in the country.

This role is a dream come true for Smith, who grew up on a ranch in Montana, doing the work of a cowboy, hand in hand with his grandfather. Maybe it wasn't as big a ranch as the Dutton family's in Yellowstone, but big enough to work hard.

PREFERRED CHARACTER

During the first and second seasons, Smith's character, Lloyd, was an recurrent character. However, the preference of the public due to the excellent work of Smith led the producers to include him as a regular character from the third season.

Smith is currently in quarantine in Montana, waiting season four. In an interview, he comments that the series faithfully reproduces the life and work of cowboys. You recognize that this experience of yours helps you in your performance, but you must still act your role.

 FROM ACTOR TO COWBOY

Smith has more than thirty years in the entertainment industry, with various roles in his repertoire. However, this series has given him the opportunity to show a very important facet of North American life: the work of the fields and its challenges.

Doing this with an Academy winning actors like Costner and others in the cast is a dream for Smith. His grandfather used to tell him that the work they did raising cattle was important to work. Their work as ranchers helps feed the country's population.

CULTURAL LEGACY

Rancher work, farm work, and rodeo activities are part of a North American cultural heritage. For Smith, it is a pride to be able to represent him on the screen and receive recognition from people for his work.

For the actor, having his own son worked on the series as young Llyoid was an experience that touched his heart. He considers that the series is very well done, everyone is committed to making it as real as possible.

True ranchers and rodeo champions play characters and help bring credibility to the tasks the show depicts. Smith prides himself on just being a boy raised on a ranch in Hellen, Montana with his grandparents who became an actor and works with movie stars.
