Amy (Amber Marshall) shares,
“It is hard to believe I have been part of 250 Heartland episodes. When I look back and do the math, I’ve spent over 1700 days on set which is roughly 20,400 hours. I really can’t imagine a better group of people to create something so special. We are all so proud of this show.”Amber Marshall
Lou (Michelle Morgan) adds,
“Heartland entering the 17th season in an industry where a series is lucky to get a second or a third season is hard to wrap your head around. We have many knowledgeable local cowboys and cowgirls to guide the show and keep it authentically grounded in the Western world. But the most important element is that it is a multi-generational show that anyone in the family can watch and enjoy.”Michelle Morgan
Tim (Chris Potter) continues,
“In 2007, Heartland presented an opportunity of great promise. Over the course of its seasons, the promise realized, Heartland has become a dream. A way of life for many of us involved in its ongoing creation. What a ride it’s been so far!”Chris Potter
Jack (Shaun Johnston) finishes off by saying,
“250 episodes of Heartland! That sure is a beautiful thing. Working on Heartland has been the greatest gift in my professional life for me.”Shaun Johnston
