As the finale of When Calls the Heart approaches, it is easy to reflect upon all of the wonderful stories that the Canfield family have been part of this year. Joseph, Minnie, Angela, and Cooper have brought family, fortitude, and faith throughout their storylines this season. Although the characters have continued to experience life without a pandemic, the actors have made many adjustments, to ensure this program was possible. This show has also been a reminder that there are people you meet that have an instant and lasting impact, and for the townsfolk of Hope Valley, that person has been Joseph Canfield.
Joseph left a lasting impact from when he first offered to pray for Lee and also in giving advice to Jesse and Clara, with a warmth and kindness that are also characteristics of the man who portrays him. Viv Leacock was a welcomed addition to this series, as he is well known among the fans, and can also be found in a number of programs on Super Channel Heart & Home. With When Calls the Heart coming to a close for another season, Viv kindly sat down to share more about his character, family, and faith, in Hope Valley as well as in his own home.
