- Andrea Brooks has played Faith Carter on When Calls the Heart since 2015.
- Fans are worried she's leaving after a recent episode of the show.
When Calls the Heart has been through its ups and downs.
The beloved Hallmark series is in its seventh season, but not all the original cast members are still around. We’ll never forgive them for killing off Jack (Daniel Lissing), and the show is still recovering after it lost Lori Loughlin’s character, Abigail Stanton. Now, Hearties are worried that Andrea Brooks might be saying goodbye to Hope Valley, too.
Andrea has played Faith Carter on WCTH since 2015, and her romance with Paul Greene’s Dr. Carson Shepherd is one of our favorite storylines as of late. But in the recent episode “Family Matters,” Faith's future became more and more unclear.
The good news is that Faith got into medical school, but the rain cloud over all of this is that she has to attend in Chicago—which isn’t exactly driving distance from Hope Valley. Though she was torn about the decision, Carson encouraged her to go telling her, “Sometimes in life we’re presented with a choice where the right decision is to take the risk.”
She agreed—on the terms that he’ll visit—but now we’re not quite sure what that means. Is Faith going to be back? Will she finish out this season? Will she leave for a bit and return shortly after she completes her courses?
There are a lot of questions—and CountryLiving.com has the answers. Hallmark confirmed that Andrea will not be leaving WCTH. Andrea was actually on maternity leave during the last half of filming for season 7, which is why Faith had to head off to Chicago for a bit. But the network says she's still a part of the series.
Phew! We're so relived and hope to have more Faith and Carson moments to gush over soon.
