‘Yellowstone’ actress charged with disability benefit fraud

By Gina Kim (July 11, 2022, 10:32 p.m. EDT) — Actress Q’orianka Kilcher, who rose to fame playing Pocahontas in Terrance Malick’s 2005 historical drama “The New World,” has been charged with fraud in workers’ compensation insurance after he reportedly got more than $90,000 in disability benefits while working on the TV series “Yellowstone,” state regulators said Monday.

Kilcher, 32, of North Hollywood, was charged in April with separate counts of fraud under the state criminal code and the state insurance code, court records show. She then surrendered to authorities and pleaded not guilty at her May 27 arraignment, the California Department of Insurance said in a news release Monday.
