When Did When Calls The Heart Star Start Acting?
Erin Krakow grew up in Wellington Florida. This is a village just west of Palm Beach. There, she, along with her younger brother, watched Saturday Night Live at home. The two competed for their family’s attention.
She attended Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. There, she took dance and learned all the nuts and bolts of acting. She shared how her experience shaped her role as an actress now.
Dreyfoos set me on the path for professional acting. It was a great foundation with a wonderful staff. I learned dance steps, Shakespeare, costume design, lighting, and sets. I loved every minute of it.
Dreyfoos set up Erin with the foundation that prepared her for the very prestigious Juilliard School, where fellow Hallmark star Luke Macfarlane also attended.
There, she got her BFA and performed a lot of classical theatre including such classics as Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Black Russian. She has also portrayed Cecily in a production of Oscar Wilde’s infamous play, The Importance Of Being Earnest, and as Shelby in Steel Magnolias.
She admits that “I love and cherish theater,” and hopes to do more of it, she made a transition to television, which “requires another skill set.”
