This WHEN CALLS THE HEART Star was Originally Slated for Just Two Episodes

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Pascale Hutton plays the fan-favorite Rosemary Coulter on Hallmark’s WHEN CALLS THE HEART, but did you know she was originally supposed to be in just two episodes?

During a recent podcast appearance, Hutton shared how she turned her small role into a major part of the show. 

“I was on another TV series. I was a series regular on another show. I kind of went in [to the audition for WHEN CALLS THE HEART] just on a lark,” she shared.

She continued, “At that time, I thought it was just supposed to be a two-episode guest arc. So I thought, ‘This seems like something fun to do during my hiatus.’ I didn’t know what I was getting into at the time.”

However, a line at the end of the script for Hutton’s second episode made it clear Rosemary’s story was not over.

Hutton said she was initially unsure if she could continue WHEN CALLS THE HEART due to her role on the other show. However, once that show was canceled, producer Brad Krevoy invited her to become a series regular on WHEN CALLS THE HEART. 

Movieguide® previously reported on the upcoming season of WHEN CALLS THE HEART:

Hallmark recently announced the premiere date for Season 10 of the hit show, WHEN CALLS THE HEART, and confirmed that season 11 is in the works.

Season 10 will kick off on July 30, with 12 episodes total.

“I am beyond excited for season 10 of WHEN CALLS THE HEART to premiere,” said Erin Krakow, series star and executive producer. “This season is full of beautiful moments and exciting twists and turns. I can’t wait for the Hearties to see what we’ve created for them!” 

She added, “I’m so thrilled, proud and grateful to Hallmark that the show has been renewed for season 11. We have so many more stories to tell. With our amazing cast, crew, and brilliant writers, there will be no shortage of romance and new adventures for the residents of Hope Valley!”
