Kentucky actor seen in 'Hatfields & McCoys'

May. 31, 2012 @ 04:26 PM

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky actor has had some TV time this week with a role in the "Hatfields & McCoys" miniseries on the History Channel.

Boyd Holbrook of Prestonsburg had the role of William "Cap" Hatfield, the youngest son of Hatfield patriarch Devil Anse Hatfield, who was portrayed by Kevin Costner.

The 30-year-old Holbrook told The Courier-Journal he enjoyed working with Costner and Bill Paxton, who played the role of Randall McCoy. He says the actors were helpful and served as mentors while they spent time on the set.

Holbrook now splits his time between Los Angeles and New York but says he tries to make it back to Kentucky a couple of times a year, most recently for his sister's wedding a couple of weeks ago.
