Following Footsteps with Callum Seagram Airlie

Many children in Hope Valley have endured a great deal of change and loss, including Harper Tucker. It was evident that Harper’s father Virgil had a major influence on his life. Before he perished in the mine accident, he had taught Harper how to fish and to memorize the St. Francis prayer. When Harper’s mother Nancy decided it would be best to leave their painful memories behind, it was Harper’s strength and wisdom that aided in their return to town. He reminded her that even through the heartache, there were new memories made and friendships formed, and it was his dad who brought them to Hope Valley for that better life.

Portrayed by Callum Seagram Airlie, Harper’s story has continued from settler to settled in Hope Valley. The struggles and successes have taught valuable lessons, including the importance of accurate reporting in the school newsletter and working in teams. The depths of Harper’s script resonate with the viewers, due to Callum’s natural talent and his ability to connect to his character. Following in his own father’s footsteps, Callum’s passion and strengths for this industry are apparent. He warmly welcomed the opportunity to discuss his work on When Calls the Heart, as well as his role as Mark in the Father Christmas movies.
