Did Finn Little’s Carter Grow and Lose Weight in Yellowstone?

In the fourth season of Paramount Network’s Western series ‘Yellowstone,’ Bethany “Beth” Dutton offers shelter to an orphan boy named Carter at the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. Although her partner Rip Wheeler doesn’t accept the same, he realizes that there is a man in Carter somewhere, which leads him to give the boy a job at the stable.

Carter becomes a significant part of the ranch as he wakes up every day before everyone to clean the stable and tie the saddles of several horses. In the fifth season, Carter surprises John Dutton with his physical transformation, making the latter warn the boy to not grow up anymore. Intrigued by this, we have found out whether Finn Little has experienced a transformation in real life as well. Here are our findings!

Finn Little’s Weight Loss Journey

Yes, Finn Little did grow up and became thin. He also might have lost a few pounds. While Finn was filming the fourth season of the show in 2020, he was around fourteen years old. It is apparent that a boy can change significantly in two years, possibly due to the physical transformations that happen as part of adolescence. While filming the fifth season of the show, Finn is around sixteen years old, which explains his change in appearance. Rather than a bubbly child, we see a tall and thin Carter in the current season.

The viewers of the series aren’t the first group of people who got astounded to see Finn’s transformation. When the actor returned to the sets of ‘Yellowstone’ for the filming of the fifth season, not even his fellow crew members were able to recognize him. “when you say, ‘hi, nice to see you!’ to the film crew and they don’t know who you are!” Finn shared about the same. “outgrown my clothes,” the actor shared in another instance. In the show, Finn’s character Carter shares the screen most prominently with Rip. Cole Hauser, who plays Rip, was equally shocked to see Finn’s transformation.

“Yeah, he [Finn] went from, like, a little pudgy kid to all of the sudden lean and tall, and I think he’s 6-foot-1. He came in this year and he looked at me and he’s like, ‘You ain’t gonna f**k with me this year, Cole,’” Hauser told ET Online. Finn’s growth is also expected to impact Carter’s storyline in the fifth season. According to Hauser, Carter is dealing with the affairs of a “big boy.”

“In [season] four it was tough love. This year, there’s a little bit more of like me kind of opening up. But he’s [Carter] also doing great things, you know what I mean? He’s learning and he’s failing while he learns, but at least he’s trying. So, I think Taylor wrote it really well where Finn and I, the actor, can kind of slowly walk the dog this year,” Hauser added to ET Online. Furthermore, romance is added to Carter’s intriguing fifth-season storyline since Orli Gottesman joined the show as Halie, Carter’s love interest. Finn’s growth and physical transformation are also justified by a time gap between the fourth season finale and the fifth season premiere.
