Last year, "Hearties" turned out in force to listen to our episode with two of the stars from When Calls the Heart, Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith. With the Langley, BC-based series returning for a ninth season March 6 (on Super Channel Heart & Home), it's time to hear from Andrea Brooks. This is her eighth season as (now doctor) Faith Carter on the ever-popular Hallmark series.
The Brantford, Ont., native grew up in Vancouver and has credits on several BC-based series, including a fun run as troublemaker Eve Teschmacher on The CW's Supergirl. Brooks shares stories working opposite Jon Cryer (as Lex Luthor) on that series. She also talks about her recent UP network movie "Fishing for Love."
Brooks drops a few hints as to what fans have to look forward to in Season Nine -- it gets a little Bachelor-y -- and agrees that, yes, the Hope Valley wardrobe has evolved from corsets to "Frontier Caszh."
The new mom also picks an animated children's show as her all-time favourite TV theme song -- sung by none other than the late '50s rocker Little Richard.
