We spoke with Emma Malouff on the Popternative show about playing Mary Abel Dutton in the new series 1883, which premiered December 19 on Paramount+. The series is a prequel to Yellowstone, and follows the Dutton family in Texas as they set to build a better life in Montana. Created by Taylor Sheridan (same creator as Yellowstone), 1883 stars Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Billy Bob Thornton, LaMonica Garrett, Eric Nelsen, Isabel May, and James Landry Hébert.

In our interview, Emma tells us what we can expect from 1883 and from her character:
This is the origin story of who we know to be the Dutton family, this is following James Dutton and Margaret Dutton played by incredible Faith Hill and Tim McGraw […] and it’s following their journey west from Texas onward. I play the niece of Faith Hill and Tim McGraws’ characters, I play Mary Abel Dutton, she was such a fun character, I will say this: she is absolutely nothing like me.
She also discusses the excitement for 1883 from fans, working with the amazing cast and crew, being a storyteller, working with Sarah Paulson in American Crime Story, and much more.
