Yellowstone is a series that stars Kevin Costner and follows the dramatized conflicts between a cattle ranch, an Indian reservation, and land developers. The third season premiered this summer and brought a new character named Teeter. Teeter is played by actress Jennifer Landon and she is the daughter of Michael Landon.

After Michael became famous on Little House on the Prairie and Bonanza, he had another show called Highway to Heaven. Jennifer appeared on the show when she was a little girl. Sadly, her father died when she was only eight years old, but she decided to follow in his footsteps and have an acting career.

She said, “Yellowstone’s amazing. I’m a lunchbox actor. Each job is a job fought for and a job got. So after all that hard work, to get something like ‘Yellowstone’ and to get to work Taylor Sheridan, who I have tremendous respect for, and with actors of this caliber, it’s a no-brainer. Plus, I don’t know if I’ll ever audition for a part as cool as Teeter for the rest of my life. And I’m kind of okay with that.”

She continued, “Teeter is gender-defying in a lot of ways. The pink hair was in the character description based on somebody Taylor knows. What wasn’t in the character description was dipping tobacco. When I auditioned for the role, I used chewing gum as a substitute for dip and wore a baseball cap.”
