Isabel May

Isabel May is not much older than her teenage character on the show at 21-years-old. The Elsa Dutton actress tends to keep her personal life out of the spotlight, so not much is known about her family life.

It was previously rumoured that she was dating her former co-star from Netflix series Alexa & Katie, Barrett Carnahan, but it seems that the two have split as Barrett is now married to Nina Kubicki.

Sam Elliott

Famed movie actor Sam Elliott stars as Shea Brennan, a cowboy who helps guide the Dutton family from Texas to Montana. Away from cameras, the 77-year-old star is married to BAFTA award-winning actress Katharine Ross. The two tied the knot in 1984 and are parents to grown-up daughters Cleo, who is a musician. The family have resided at a seaside ranch in Malibu since the late 1970s but also have a property in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and home in Portland, which Sam inherited following the death of his mother in 2012.
