In an interview with Deadline, Sheridan opened up about his admiration for Coleman, saying: “I had the opportunity to work with Dabney in 2003, and learned priceless lessons in the power of simplicity as an artist, but more importantly I witnessed Dabney’s humility, grace, and patience (with my 10,000 questions).”

He went on to express his gratitude for Coleman’s willingness to be a part of Yellowstone, adding: “I never forgot those lessons, and was humbled myself when he agreed to appear on Yellowstone. His performance was yet another lesson in bravery and emotional honesty. Dabney Coleman is a treasure. He will be missed and admired, always.”
