Outer Range's Tamara Podemski is joining Reservation Dogs Season 2 in a recurring role. Primetimer broke the news last Friday in an interview with Podemski from the set of Reservation Dogs, but on Wednesday, Variety reported that the Indigenous actor will be playing Bear Smallhill's aunt in three episodes of the series.
Created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, Reservation Dogs follows four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma as they take part in a series of illegal exploits in order to make their way to California. The comedy stars D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis, and Lane Factor. In addition, every writer, director, and regular cast member on Reservation Dogs is Indigenous.
Podemski and Harjo previously collaborated on his directorial debut Four Sheets to the Wind, which won the Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. In the years since, Podemski has appeared in a host of film and television projects, including Canadian dramas Unsettled and Coroner. The actor can currently be seen as Deputy Sheriff Joy in Prime Video's Outer Range.
Reservation Dogs is available to stream on Hulu.
