Sam Elliott joins Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren at the SAG event to talk about their Yellowstone spinoffs

Sam Elliott joined Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford for a SAG-AFTRA panel on Saturday to discuss their two Yellowstone spinoffs, 1923 and 1883.

The 78-year-old mustachioed icon looked right at home alongside Dame Helen, 77, and living legend Harrison Ford, 80.

Elliott starred in last year’s Yellowstone prequel 1883, while Mirren and Ford saddle up for their new chapter in the Dutton family saga in 1923, which premieres December 18 this month.

The three stars all embodied subtle elements of the West for their panel discussion, which came to promote their sister shows for the SAG Awards.

Ford and Elliott both looked clean-cut and rugged, while Mirren looked classy yet comfortable in a gray cardigan and cozy ruffled skirt.

The Queen star and her Star Wars protagonist have officially entered the sprawling Yellowstone universe, playing the central 1923 couple Jacob and Cara Dutton as they struggle to maintain their ranch empire in the series’ title year.

Before the events of 1923, Same Elliott helped the Dutton’s find a way to Montana and in 1883 established the family ranch.

This show starred real-life couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as the central couple of James and Margaret Dutton, while Elliott drove in to play the sturdy leader of their wagon train.

Oscar winner Mirren and the Indiana Jones star – who will soon be wearing his fedora for the fifth and final time in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny – walked the red carpet together at the premiere of 1923 on Friday night.

“She’s wonderful,” Ford told People Friday night, singing Mirren’s praises up and down the red carpet. “She’s just such a lovely person, so it’s been both a professional and personal pleasure to work with her again.”

Harrison and Helen first worked together on survival drama The Mosquito Coast in 1986, and his ardent admiration for their work hasn’t evaporated in 36 years.

“I admire her work and her personality,” he told People, “and I admire her just as much as I did then.”

Mirren was no less effusive in her praise of the Refugee star, explaining to People how she considered herself a Hollywood “nobody” while filming The Mosquito Coast all those years ago.

“When we first worked together, he was a big movie star and I was like nobody,” she explained. “I was very intimidated, very intimidated.”

“I learned a lot from him,” Mirren continued, “because I hadn’t done much. I had done a lot of theater at that point, I hadn’t done a lot of films. So I checked it out and it taught me a lot about film acting to this day [that] I still use.’

1923 looks set to be a surefire hit, as Mirren likens the Yellowstone universe to “a great Russian novel” like War and Peace.

Ford also praised the “scope and scope” of the series, which will premiere December 18 on Paramount+.
