Hallmark’s “When Calls The Heart” Star Jack Wagner is currently starring in the 10th season of the hit show and he has a very impressive TV record!
Jack has starred in multiple Soap Operas and received two Emmy nominations.
He talked about it with Digital Journal.
“In my soap opera days, I would have 30 to 50 pages of dialogue, but that is not the case when you shoot film. Soap operas would have five cameras, while for film, we shoot with one camera. I’m always drawn to shows that have massive production because I know what it takes to shoot at that level, the timeline it takes, the makeup, props, and the blood. Our show is so tight, we do two episodes in 13.5 days. I am always amazed at the production values of these high-budget series.”
On his nominations for “Outstanding Lead Actor” for playing Dominick “Nick” Marone on “The Bold and Beautiful” in 2005, and one for “Outstanding Juvenile Male in a Drama Series” for playing Frisco Jones on “General Hospital, he shared:
“Those Emmy nominations were great, especially because there was 15 shows back then, so it meant more. It was a real honor to be nominated.”
We hope he receives more in the future.
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.
