If you're wondering why Caroline Weaver from "Yellowstone" looks so familiar, it's because she's played by Australian actress Jackie Weaver. She started her career as a young theater actor in Australia but made waves when she was cast as the female lead of the 1971 comedy "Stork," which brought her critical acclaim and awards.
After her success in the Australian indie film scene, she went back to work in theater productions, and it wasn’t until 2010’s “Animal Kingdom” that Weaver’s film career saw a resurgence. Weaver earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Australian crime matriarch "Smurf" Cody.
Two years later, Weaver was cast in David O Russell’s star-studded comedy-drama “Silver Linings Playbook,” for which she earned her second Oscar nomination. She played the harried and opinionated Dolores Solitano and held her own opposite acting juggernauts like Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.
After the success of “Silver Linings Playbook," Weaver continued showcasing her range, landing the role of Cheryl in Netflix's smash hit horror-thriller “Bird Box.” Cheryl is one member of a group of survivors that Sandra Bullock's Malorie finds in a house, and she ultimately meets a gruesome demise.
