just a few days before the much awaited Season 5 premiere of “Yellowstone” Paramount+ released new photos of Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren at the prequel show “1923”.
“Meet Jacob and Kara Dutton,” read a series of photos Ford and Harrison shared on Instagram.
According to the studio, the show will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic droughts, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plagued the Mountain West and the Duttons who call it home.”
“Yellowstone” is currently in front Kevin Costner as John Dutton The nephew of the characters Jacob and Kara.
Speaking to Vanity Fair about her characters, Mirren revealed that she and Ford are childless on the show, but are very much in love.
Mirren explained, “They’ve been married a long time. They didn’t have kids, so they didn’t make sense of having kids together.”
“An incredible partnership where you can be honest with each other, and your love and support of each other is total, but at the same time you are no longer blind to love or lust,” is how she would describe Dutton’s relationship. . “You are much more candid about your relationship, but the relationship becomes stronger for that reason.”
Ford echoed her sentiments, saying that her and Mirren’s characters are “completely wrapped up in each other.”
Harrison said, “There is very little that holds them apart from the hard work and investment they put into their future and their family. It’s a tough life, and it’s fraught with not only physical challenges but moral challenges as well.”
In developing her character, Mirren states that she views Kara as emigrating from Ireland to Montana.
“One of the things I wanted very strongly was that he speak with an Irish accent, not an American accent. It always pisses me off a little bit of Westerners that you see all these people with modern American accents.” While in fact many of them were fairly recent immigrants,” she said.
Mirren elaborated, “The big Irish immigration to America, because of the potato famine, happened in the late 19th century. It works perfectly chronologically for Cara. She’s in her late 60s now, we Imagine. With enormous courage and freedom.”
Ford’s character, for his part, is the brother of James and Claire Dutton.
“He’s the silverback,” Ford said. “He is responsible for that branch of the family. These are two people who have very strong bonds with each other who are facing really complicated situations.”

“1923” premiered at Paramount+. will be on on 18 December.
