Hallmark’s “When Calls The Heart” Season 10 is currently airing and fans are still missing the one and only Daniel Lissing!
Daniel was the love interest to Erin Kraków’s “When Calls The Heart” character Elizabeth.
The fifth season finale had Elizabeth receiving a letter telling her Jack had been killed in a mudslide while trying to help some rookie Mounties. It was a shocking turn, especially as Elizabeth had just learned she was pregnant with his child.
Jack did leave behind a letter on how much he loved Elizabeth, giving her the strength to live on and handle the complex challenges of being a single mother. It was a heartbreaking moment for the audience, yet it was pushed by Lissing wanting to leave and shook up the show. Per HiddenRemote
Creator Brian Bird recently shared a throwback of the two:
“Love it when nice guys show up in my memories. Miss this one! I’m sure a few #Hearties do, too!”
Daniel spoke on leaving the show and shared that he would return:
“It’s funny the way the world works. If I had stayed on the show, and been there during season 6 and shot and all that kind of stuff, then I wouldn’t have met [my fiancee] Nadia, you know? And I wouldn’t be getting married and I wouldn’t be at this place in my life where I feel really in line with what I’m meant to be doing personally and professionally, so no regrets at all. How can I look at my future wife and say, ‘Oh, I should’ve stayed on this job?’ She’s my life, you know? That’s my personal life and that’s exponentially more important to me than a job.”
“It would be so much fun to return. Of course. Just to go up there and see everyone again. I could see my old horse, Taylor. Look, if Hallmark called me for anything, I’d be there. They were there for me for five years so of course, I love those guys, so anytime.”

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.
