Just recently, When Calls The Heart announced that the Taylor twins, Lincoln and Gunner, are no longer playing Little Jack Thornton. The twins have been in that role since Season 6.
Why did the twins leave the Hallmark series?
Why Did The Taylor Twins Leave When Calls The Heart?
Lincoln and Gunner Taylor went to Instagram to share why they left When Calls The Heart. “Words out – Taylor twins have taken the year off of filming and even though we miss our WCTH family, we will never forget the three years we spent on set. We can not wait to see our new friend Hyland on the show and look forward to meeting him! This is not goodbye – it’s see you later ❤️”
The Taylor twins are taking a year off. Since that post, their mom, who runs their social media, has shared all sorts of adorable photos. Any Heartie who needs a dose of these twin cuties can always peruse their Instagram and get a dose of their cuteness.
However, right now, they are passing the torch to Hyland, the new Little Jack.
Hyland Goodrich, whose mom runs his Instagram, replied to their post. “❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for doing such an amazing job as ‘Little Jack’ Gunnar and Lincoln! We can tell how incredibly loved the boys are by the cast, crew and Hearties, and they always will be! Those are some big shoes to fill, but Hyland will proudly carry their torch on! 🥰🥰🥰”
When Calls The Heart Twins Played Joke On Fans
When Calls The Heart Season 9 started filming back in late July. Hearties did not know that they made this change. So, who could not think everything was normal, as in the Taylor Twins filming? But, they were in on the secret.
Hearties who saw their post on July 23 could easily believe everything was normal. On that day, the Taylor twins shared an Instagram photo of the two of them in front of an actor’s trailer. The caption? “Here we go!!!!!❤️”
However, they were not starting to film! The twins were playing a funny trick on Hearties. Pretty adorable.
Who Is Now Playing Little Jack?
This is Vancouver-based Goodrich’s television debut.
He lives with his mom, dad, older sister, and cat Zelda. A truck aficionado, he seems to enjoy monster trucks. He is also a guitar player, and reader.
Moreover, Hyland seems comfortable with Chris McNally and Erin Krakow, the two actors he will likely spend the most time with.
When Calls The Heart Season 9 will premiere early in 2022.
