Actor Forrie J. Smith, who plays the aged and rugged ranch hand Lloyd Pierce on the smash hit Yellowstone, apologized to fans for not attending the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards due to his choice to remain unvaccinated.

Yellowstone — up for its first award nod — is nominated in the top category of ensemble in a television drama along with Succession, Squid Game, The Morning Show and The Handmaid’sTale.
