Josh Brolin's daughter Eden joined 'Yellowstone' in 2020.

Eden made her debut on Yellowstone in Season 3, Episode 3, portraying Mia, the barrel racer girl whose relationship with Jimmy ends after he moves to the 6666 ranch. He meets another girl, Emily (Kathryn Kelly), during his time in Texas. Jimmy introduces Emily to Mia and the other inhabitants of the bunk house in the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone.

As Eden explained in an appearance on Stories from the Bunkhouse, however, she was first ogling Teeter's role. (The role went to Jennifer Landon.)

"I auditioned for Teeter and then like six months later or something, Mia came in," Eden said, via Daily Express. "It was easy as that, you know."

Josh's older kids have decided to follow his lead and forge a career in showbiz. Now 33, Trevor is an actor, producer, and cinematographer. He wrote and directed a short film, Felt.

Eden, who is Josh's second oldest, is a talented singer and actress. The Yellowstone star is also the lead singer of Atta Boy, an indie-pop band.

"I think it’s a vastly different creative process for me. I think I really, really like acting because there’s the sort of agreement you have as an actor to take either what’s been written or what a filmmaker is trying to get out of a character and into a scene," Eden told CrypticRock in 2021. "Whereas with songwriting, I have to push myself. I’m not saying I don’t do the work in acting; I think you do, but depending on what you’re doing, it can come a little bit more naturally."
