Tim McGraw and Faith Hill act together for the first time in the streaming series, 1883, the prequel to Yellowstone.

Tim and Faith play husband and wife, James and Margaret Dutton, great grandparents to Yellowstone patriarch, John Dutton.

Faith says there was one scene in which she and Tim were in the bathtub together that made her feel uneasy. She tells People, “It was really uncomfortable for me personally because I’m a very shy person in that type of situation. I obviously feel comfortable with my husband, but this is different. For intimate scenes, I feel like that belongs to us.”

The director closed the set and Faith says the scene turned out to be beautiful.   1883 debuts on Paramount Plus on December 19th.
