Goodbye, Jack Thornton.
Following Sunday’s When Calls the Heart season a few finale, Daniel Lissing took to Instagram to say farewell as well as thank all his Hearties for their unconditional support as his time on the show comes to an end.
“After the interviews yesterday regarding #whencallstheheart, I had a phone call about work overlooking LA,” the 36-year-old actor wrote on Tuesday alongside picture of himself taking a mysterious call while overlooking the City of Angels. “I have no idea what the future holds for my career… although I’m excited to see what happens as well as I feel very lucky to develop the support of the #hearties as well as @hallmarkchannel moving forward. #thankyouforeverything.”
In Sunday’s surprising finale, the series-long love story between school teacher Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) as well as Canadian Mountie Jack Thornton (Lissing) came to a painful end when Jack died offscreen, leaving Elizabeth a bereaved widow — although the surprise pregnancy cliffhanger at the end of the episode left fans which has a ray of desire.
During a Facebook Live, Lissing explained his departure via the show.
“Circumstances arose for me where I needed to leave When Calls the Heart for reasons of which are very personal to me,” Lissing said without elaborating. “I went to Hallmark as well as they were nothing although supportive of me. I went to the girls as well as they were nothing although supportive of me.”
He said of which his relationship with his co-stars, the network as well as his fan base is actually still “a very positive one” as well as he’s “very excited to see what the future brings.”
