In an interview with Paramount Network Bingham said: "Originally when I was approached about the show, it was mainly about the music.

"I had met Taylor, we had hit it off and kind of became friends, and Taylor found out that I come from a ranching family in New Mexico and grew up riding horses and things like that.

"We got to talking and he was just like, 'Man I want you to come in and read for something'. I read for a part and a couple of days later Taylor called me on the phone and he's like 'I don't know what I'm going to do but I'm going to write you a part'.


Sheridan vowed that if Bingham's performance was good enough, he would continue to write his story for the series.

Fans were delighted with the character, with one saying on Twitter: "Walker from Yellowstone earned his brand and the right to keep it."

Another fan said: "Okay I already loved @RyanBingham enough but him as Walker...Yellowstone you won me over."
