She Grew Up With the Cowboy Lifestyle
Born and raised in Texas, Harrison grew up immersed in the cowboy lifestyle. The cowboy way has always been a part of her life, and she is able to live it to the fullest with her role in Yellowstone.
“I grew up in Texas and I grew up around this cowboy culture. I’ve been riding horses eight hours a day and roping, you know, and leaning into the life. I think being up here in Montana vs. shooting somewhere like Utah and sound stages somewhere else – just helps you live the part. It just feels authentic inside of you,” said Harrison to Outsider.
She Attended College in Europe
Harrison got her love of acting from a young age, as her mother was involved in the Dallas children’s theater. At the age of 15, she began studying European Cinema in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Harrison also studied under Ivana Chubbuck, where she learned all about modern methods of film performance and creativity. In addition, she joined the Upright Citizens Brigade, an American improvisational theatre that teaches comedy skills to its students.
She Has Always Wanted to Star in a Western
Harrison has always wanted to star in a Western. Fortunately for her, she found the perfect role as Lamarie in Yellowstone.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to work on a Western, I grew up in Texas, so I was thrilled to get to play a character that let me ride a horse,” said Harrison.
Harrison has grown close to many of the cast of Yellowstone. She also finds Montana to be a magical place and enjoys the time she spends there.
“Eden Brolin (Mia), Jen Landon (Teeter), and me are the three girls on the show, and we developed a real sisterhood. We’d go on hikes together and play poker and had a fun time,” she tells Town & Country.
She Enjoyed Her Time at Cowboy Bootcamp
To help prepare for her role as barrel racer Lamarie, Harrison attended cowboy boot camp. She spent plenty of time in the saddle sharpening her skills.
“One of my favorite parts of this experience was my week of cowboy camp; we did a rodeo at the end, which I won with three other people,” said Harrison.
