Even Faith and Tim’s daughter Audrey got involved, commenting: “Iconic.”
The pair have been friends since the early 2000s, and Rita will portray Carolyn, a storekeeper at Doan’s Crossing who helps Margaret (played by Faith) decompress.
Rita will join the series
The news comes after 65-year-old Tom surprised fans with an appearance in the second episode of the new series, a spin-off of Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone. The Oscar winner played General George Meade who appeared as part of a Civil War flashback.
1883 follows the Dutton family before they founded their Montana cattle ranch, and airs on Paramount +.
It debuted on 19 December, and has received huge praise from viewers since its release. The official synopsis for the show reads: “1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.”
Faith has been applauded for her acting skills
Ahead of the release date, Faith said that working in the show was “the opportunity of a lifetime”.
She said: “The Duttons are a formidable family and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honored to work with Taylor and his entire team.”
Tim, meanwhile, described it as “a dream job”.
