Q’orianka Kilcher, who plays the role of powerhouse attorney Angela Blue Thunder is coming back for season 5 of the Paramount show, Yellowstone. However, she hasn’t been seen on the series since season 3 due to injuries to her neck and right shoulder. The last time Kilcher appeared on the Paramount Network hit series was the season 3 finale, titled The World is Purple.

In July this year, the California Department of Insurance released a statement about the actress. The statement read that Kilcher “allegedly broke the law in collecting more than $90,000 in disability benefits. According to Deadline, she was charged with two felony counts of workers’ compensation insurance fraud.

About Q’orianka Kilcher’s fraud charges

According to the statement, Kilcher was filming Dora and the Lost City of Gold with actors Eva Longoria and Michael Peña at the time. She allegedly injured her neck and right shoulder on the set. Kilcher saw a doctor a few times that year, but stopped treatment, not responding to the insurance company handling her claim on behalf of her employer.

A year later in October 2019, the actress contacted the insurance company, saying she needed treatment. Kilcher told the doctor handling her claim that she had been offered work since her injury had occurred. However, Kilcher said she had been unable to accept it, due to the fact that her neck pain was too severe.

Based on her statements to the doctor, she began receiving temporary total disability payments. Meanwhile, she had allegedly been accepting payments while working on Yellowstone from July to October 2019.

Kilcher’s career outside of Yellowstone

Besides Yellowstone up to season 3, Kilcher has recently co-starred with Channing Tatum in Dog on MGM. Moreover, she is currently in post-production for Yesteryear. Meanwhile, she co-wrote, produced and is starring with Scott Haze, Nick Cassavetes, Wes Studi, Angela Sarafyan and Peter Facinelli.

Kilcher previously starred in the TNT series The Alienist as Mary Palmer. She also starred as Kerrianne Telford in Sons of Anarchy. Another role saw Kilcher as Inca princess Kawillaka in Dora and the Lost City of Gold.

The cast of Yellowstone, including Kilcher, returns for a two-hour premiere for season 5 on November 13, 2022.
