Hallmark’s “When Calls The Heart” Season 10 fans are loving her season so far and they’re loving how well the casting department did casting Little Jack!
Jack “little Jack” Thornton Jr. (born December 24, 1915) is the son of late Jack Thornton and Elizabeth Thornton.
Soon after his father’s “death”, Elizabeth begins to experience pregnancy symptoms and Abigail informs that she is pregnant with Jack’s child.
He was born on Christmas Eve, in a hunting cabin in the woods. His mother, Elizabeth, went into labor on the way home from picking up his baby carriage. The timing of his birth was a surprise as he arrived a month early but perfectly healthy after He was christened. Bill Avery and Julie Thatcher were selected as his godparents. Lee & Rosemary Coulter were selected as his guardians.
He is portrayed by Hyland Goodrich on the show and the fans think the casting was perfect because Hyland looks just like Daniel Lissing who portrays his father Jack on the show.
Love this! Do you se the resemblance? Let us know your thoughts!
Inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West, “When Calls the Heart” follows the story of a young schoolteacher and single mother, Elizabeth Thornton (Erin Krakow), in the quaint town of Hope Valley. When her husband is suddenly killed on duty, she must find the courage and strength to move forward. With the help and guidance of the townspeople and her friends, she adjusts to the ever-changing times and the people that enter her life.
Other central characters include Rosemary Coulter (Pascale Hutton), Elizabeth’s best friend, the town’s loveable busybody once described as “part Broadway showgirl, part Frontier woman,” and her patient husband, the upstanding businessman Leland Coulter (Kavan Smith). Judge Bill Avery (Jack Wagner) works hard to protect the town and to cement his position as Hope Valley’s ultimate authority. Fairly new to the community are Mountie Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry) and saloon owner Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally), who both vie for the attention of Elizabeth. With the added pressure on deciding between her suitors, writing a novel and taking care of her son, Elizabeth continues to teach the children of Hope Valley all while trying to navigate the challenges in her life.
