Here's all you need to know about the record-breaking Hallmark Channel actress, Erin Krakow, who has been performing since she was a child.

Erin has played "Elizabeth Thatcher" ever since "When Calls the Heart's" very first season. She has stuck with the role through all the changes that have been made.

Away from her formal wear in production, the actress also looks good in casual clothes. This is clearly shown in a picture of her at the beach, which she shared via Instagram. The actress rocked a T-shirt and denim shorts.

Krakow is a brunette with striking blue eyes. She is excellent at acting, and she was the star of Hallmark's most-watched premiere since its inception, "Finding Father Christmas." 

Krakow also executes the role of Elizabeth beautifully. According to her, she tries to do it in a way that feels true to her.


Changes have been made since she started working on the show. A major one is an exit of co-actor Daniel Lissing, who played her on-screen husband; Jack Thornton was killed off at the end of season five.

Erin is also a producer, but her journey through the world of entertainment began with acting.


Fans have still not gotten over his exit from the show, but Daniel Lissing left because it was best for him as he wanted to move on to something else.

Another shocking exit was that of Lori Loughlin, who was fired from the show after her involvement in the college admissions scandal was discovered. Erin has stood by her friend all through the ordeal.


Just like the actress supports her friend, her fans support her. Krakow is adored by fans of "When Calls the Heart," who are a big part of her role on the show as she is used to having an audience.

Apart from being an actress, Erin is also a producer, but her journey through the world of entertainment began with acting.

Krakow started acting because of her brother, who took the attention from her five-year-old self when he was born. She used acting as a means of dealing with it, but it ended up becoming something she loved.
