There's a chance you're already a fan of Yellowstone. (And if you're not—what are you waiting for?) The Western drama has reached massive success, with millions of viewers tuning in (when in season)—making it the most watched cable show on multiple occasions. There are countless reasons why the Kevin Costner-led series does so well, but a big one is its awe-inspiring characters.
Though they all bring something to the table, we would be kidding ourselves if we said Yellowstone would be what it was without the iconic Beth Dutton. She's a fierce businesswoman that has proven her capability through her quick wits, sharp tongue, and bold persona. Oh, and did we mention that Beth has an absolutely impeccable sense of fashion?
If you think back to season 3 of Yellowstone, you might remember your heart sinking after Beth's involvement in an explosion that had everyone questioning if the show killed her off. Thankfully, that wasn't the case, and we can expect more drama and standout quotes from her character in the long run. But you may be wondering who's responsible for playing the staple character. Meet Kelly Reilly. Though the actress has made John Dutton's daughter a hard-to-forget name, she has had a long career of notable roles. Here's everything you need to know about Kelly's career, personal life, and what she's up to now!
Where is Kelly Reilly really from?
This may come as a surprise, but Kelly was born and raised in Chessington, Surrey, England! That's right—the American accent she uses for her role in Yellowstone isn't her authentic voice! 🤯 In fact, a good portion of her work has been in English shows and movies before starring in American films. You can hear Kelly's actual voice in her various interviews and press conferences.
Fun fact: Kelly's full name is Jessica Kelly Siobhán Reilly.
What else has Beth from Yellowstone been in?
Though Yellowstone has further spread Kelly's name, her acting career actually began when she was just 18 years old. Kelly first appeared on the English show, The Biz, back in 1995. And it seems like the actress hasn't rested since, having over 50 on-screen appearances. Kelly's most notable works include the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (2005), Sherlock Holmes (2009), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011), and Flight (2012)—where she performed alongside Denzel Washington! She has also made appearances on the tv series True Detective.
Along with the big and small screens, Kelly has experience performing on the stage. Back in London—she played the leading role in After Miss Julie at the Donmar Warehouse. The play was well received and even earned her a nomination for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress of 2003.
Is Kelly Reilly married?
Just like her character on Yellowstone, Kelly is happily married to her husband, Kyle Baugher! (Although, her love story has likely faced less turmoil than Beth and Rip. 😂) The first time Kelly mentioned Kyle to the public was in 2011, they were engaged by 2012, and married within the same year. Sounds like love at first sight. While Kyle keeps his personal life private, Kelly occasionally posts about him on her Instagram—and it's always adorable when she does! The couple do not currently share any kids (as we know).
