Luke Grimes Has The Whole Crew Of Yellowstone Laughing Between Takes

"Yellowstone" has emerged as easily one of the most popular shows of the last decade (via Parrot Analytics). Since it premiered back in 2018, the series has garnered such a passionate and consistent fanbase over the course of its 5 seasons that it has launched several spin-offs like "1883," "1883: The Bass Reeves Story," "1923," and "6666," all of which take place in the same historical fiction world of the mainline show.

Created by Taylor Sheridan, "Yellowstone" follows the lives of the Dutton family on the titular ranch. Of course, one of the elements that have made the series so successful is the cast of characters in and around the Duttons. Among the most likable and popular is Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), a former Navy SEAL and accomplished horse tamer. However, to hear Kelsey Asbille, who plays Kayce's wife Monica in "Yellowstone," tell it, Grimes is just as charming in between scenes as he is in the series itself.

Kelsey Asbille says Luke Grimes is hilarious behind the scenes

Kelsey Asbille sat down with Taste of Country to talk about her experiences from behind the scenes of "Yellowstone," and the actor was quick to point out that her on-screen husband Luke Grimes is a laugh riot between takes on the neo-Western series.

"They should do a reel, honestly. There is a lot of laughter that you would not expect, especially with Luke," Asbille said. "Luke can get the whole crew laughing very easily. So yeah, I would say a lot of our outtakes, we have fun, despite the circumstances." Considering how many scenes Asbille and Grimes have together in "Yellowstone," it's no surprise to hear that the two have become friends. However, it sounds like Grimes' charisma and sense of humor have helped ingratiate him to other members of the cast and crew as well.

The storytelling on "Yellowstone" can sometimes can really heavy, so it's surely a relief for the actors on the series to be able to have a bit of fun between takes. "It's a really fun group, and we just really like spending time with each other," Asbille went on. The actor also extrapolated on what it was like shooting the show during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"We were kind of in a bubble," she said. "We were one of the first shows to start production during the pandemic, so really, all we could see was each other." Well, being that this was the case, it's a good thing that the cast seems to get along so well with one another.
