“Yellowstone” is the sleeper hit that snuck up on audiences and is taking the country by storm. Ratings sites like IMDb are giving the drama an 8.8/10 and social media sites like Twitter are full of praise from excited fans. Season 4 wrapped up earlier this month, and Season 5 should be debuting later this year. But there’s one actor on the show in particular that really stands out among the ensemble cast.
“I just felt excited and honored to join a show where women really — for lack of a better term — have life by the balls,” said Jennifer Landon in a recent “Yellowstone” featurette on the show’s official YouTube account. She plays the wacky and often unintelligible ranch hand Teeter. Landon and her character entered the show at the beginning of Season 3, and fans are in love with her. But there’s something viewers may not know about how she handles herself on set which her fellow castmates recently spilled the tea about.
Landon takes her character to a whole other level on set
Landon doesn’t just play her character well — she’s extremely dedicated to elevating her performance in ways that are wowing her fellow cast members. In the same featurette, costar Jefferson White (who plays Jimmy Hurdstrom on the show) insists that “the Teeter that she brings to life is so much more incredible” than what anyone expected before she joined the cast. Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler) added that “she’s a badass” and Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton) flatteringly added that “[Landry] just brings it” every time she steps in front of the camera.
For fans of the show, it should come as no surprise that she’s so dedicated to making her character the best she can be. And audiences are responding to it. Fans on social media like @thecitywino have officially declared themselves “Team Teeter” and viewer @JuanTresdoce was not alone when he was elated to discover that she would remain employed by the Duttons after an emotionally agonizing cliffhanger. Whether you love her or hate her, Teeter is here to stay — for the time being anyway. And Landon will likely continue delivering a powerful performance.
