Brecken Merrill stars on Paramount Network’s hit western as Tate Dutton, John Dutton’s (played by Kevin Costner) grandson. The young actor opened up about receiving insightful advice from his Yellowstone co-star and thanked him in a sweet tribute.

Yellowstone became a worldwide hit after it first landed on screens in 2018 and throughout the years viewers have watched Brecken Merrill grow up.
He first landed the role at just eight years of age and continues to star as Tate at 14 years old.
Since his first appearance in the pilot episode, Brecken has spent a lot of time with John as the characters bonded together in the show.
The actor lifted the lid on an introspective conversation he had with Kevin, which solidified his career choice.

Fans will remember the jaw-dropping scene from the season one episode, The Long Black Train.
Tate and John had ventured into the countryside together and shared a touching moment as the youngster learned how to start a campfire.
However, the blissful moment took a turn for the worse after Tate went deeper into the woods and fell into freezing water.
Tate took an accidental dive as he reached for a branch, but luckily his grandfather was there to rescue him.
