Why Daniel Lissing Really Left Hallmark's When Calls The Heart

Daniel Lissing didn’t dive too deeply into his motivation for leaving “When Calls the Heart” but his co-star, Lori Loughlin, suggested during the Facebook Live that his decision came after deciding not to renew his contract with the network. “But we are actors, and actors have contracts and sometimes contracts expire and you have a choice to make,” said Loughlin during their Q&A session. “You either renegotiate or you don’t, and Dan has chosen to move on, we respect that. No judgment, we love him, we wish him well, he’s still part of the Hallmark family,” she continued. While Lissing didn’t chime in to confirm or deny Loughlin’s thoughts, he did call the role “the honor of his career.”

That said, Lissing has since revealed that he doesn’t regret leaving “When Calls the Heart” behind. “It’s funny the way the world works. If I had stayed on the show, and been there during season 6 and shot and all that kind of stuff, then I wouldn’t have met [my fiancee] Nadia, you know?” Lissing told ET in February 2020. “And I wouldn’t be getting married and I wouldn’t be at this place in my life where I feel really in line with what I’m meant to be doing personally and professionally, so no regrets at all.” While it’s clear that Lissing loves his job, the actor also revealed that his personal life takes precedence over his career.
