Since this moment yellowstone Introducing Dawn Olivieri as Sarah Atwood, viewers eagerly awaited a showdown between Market Equities’ sneaking shark and Kelly Reilly’s Beth, the Dutton family’s not-so-secret weapon. And it’s coming, Olivieri tells TVLine. In fact, we “do not have to wait long at all. [It’s] pretty soon.”
That 1883 Veterinarian, who joined the Paramount Network hit in Season 5, is as excited as we are for the fur to fly. Up to this point, “it’s what I call a slow burn,” she says. “Every week I’m like, ‘Okay, Sarah, can you do what you came to do?’ I’m over here like, ‘Let’s get on with it!’ But we watch as she places all her pieces on the board.
“We can count on Beth to do even better when the time comes,” she adds. “That’s what she’s really good at. I’m coming for her!”
To prepare for the clash of the titans, Olivieri purposely didn’t speak to Reilly about it — or much at all. “I deliberately don’t befriend Kelly as an actress until we know what we’re doing,” she says. “Because I like the vibe of ‘Who is this person?’ like. We actually have that in real life now. Kelly was kind of like that too.
“We saw each other on set,” she continues, “but I choose to play it in a way that even as a person makes her a little self-conscious, so I can talk to her on screen, and she has to put it in.” Don’t fake it in any way, because we do it in real life.
Olivieri, of course, is aware that she doesn’t have go so far. “It’s just a decision I’m making for fun. And I think Kelly’s in,” she says. “She does the same thing in a way, which is just a testament to a great actress. We “method” our way through it.”
Although Beth has been known to toss a cowboy hat on the ground, don’t expect her conflict with Sarah to be resolved with fisticuffs. Her dusting “is going to be more psychological just because Sarah is. She doesn’t have to fight,” says Olivieri. “An inability to communicate defines how you use your body to hit each other.
“Sarah has [a different] Attack arsenal—and so does Beth when challenged to use it,” she continues. “It’s just that she tends to care for the animal [within her] more than the mind offers. That’s why Sarah will be such a strong opponent.”
The next episode of yellowstone airs Sundays at 8/7c.
