In anticipation of the Season 1 premiere of “1883,” Tim McGraw spoke to journalists at the Las Vegas premiere to cover everything related to the new series. So, what is it about “1883” that makes McGraw so emotional?
“The biggest challenge in playing James was not to cry,” said McGraw. The Hollywood Reporter. “Because there are so many moments as a person, as a parent, and as a real person that it’s hard for me to hold back the tears. And James doesn’t.”
Part of the reason McGraw was able to narrate such emotion from the story was a result of the authenticity that “Yellowstone” author Taylor Sheridan wanted to bring to his products. “Taylor is an authentic person,” says McGraw. McGraw also told The Hollywood Reporter that he tries his best to get into the character and feel the same emotions as his character, even going as far as going to the set in his costume. one hour before filming begins.
“I really try and spend a lot of time doing that and trying to get into Taylor’s mind a little bit [in terms of] McGraw said.
“1883” premieres on Paramount Network and Paramount+ on December 19, after which time Paramount+ will become the exclusive home of the series. Hopefully by the end of the first episode we’re all saying, “I love it! I love it! I want some more!” (through the YouTube).
