The roles actors and actresses play on-screen easily influences people’s opinion about them, and this has certainly been the case for American actress Erin Krakow who so much has been said about in relation to her work on the Hallmark series When Calls the Heart, where she plays the character of Elizabeth Thatcher Thornton.
Krakow, who began her acting career in 2010 by appearing as Specialist Tanya Gabriel in the Lifetime television drama series Army Wives, has long faced rumors that she is in a relationship with her When Calls the Heart co-star, Daniel Lissing, who plays the character of Jack Thornton on the show. The seemingly close bond she shares with him has prompted many to believe that their relationship goes beyond the TV screen. Neither party had, however, come out to spell out the true nature of their friendship, prompting many more discussions on the matter as their show continues to thrive on air.
What is the True Nature of the Relationship Between Erin Krakow and Daniel Lissing?
One of the many things that have kept When Calls The Heart going is Erin Krakow’s character’s relationship with that of the character played by Australian actor Daniel Lissing.
The chemistry between the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native and her Sydney, Australia born co-star has had fans wishing that they would become a couple in real life. The actors appear to clearly understand the meaning of their strong on-screen bond and what it does for their show as they have become good at recreating it in public. They have done so by posting cozy-pictures of themselves together on their different social media handles.

That’s why I always keep an Aussie handy on set.

While doing this, the pair had made sure to never answer questions or address things surrounding their personal lives that would indicate they were not an item. It further helps that neither Erin Krakow or Dan Lissing have ever been married, or publicly dated anyone in the past, which would put the whole act to an end.

In October 2017, however, Lissing appeared to have ruined the whole act after posting a photo of himself and Erin where he called her “sister” although many had before that come to see the whole idea of a relationship between the pair as a joke, likening it to that of the off-screen relationship between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

As time went by, Daniel Lissing put all the rumors about him and Erin Krakow being an item to bed as he began to flaunt his new girlfriend on his social media pages. The actor, who is also popular for his role as Conrad De Groot in an Aussie drama series Crownies, is currently engaged to a woman identified as Nadia. Erin herself confirmed this when she congratulated her actor-friend on his engagement.
Is The Actress Dating Anyone Else?
Having cleared all doubts about her relationship with Daniel Lissing, Erin Krakow has had to face numerous other rumors of her being involved with other people. One of the most prominent and recent rumors about her love life involves her being with actor Ben Rosenbaum, who portrays the character of Michael Hickam on the popular Hallmark Channel series.
Erin, who is an active member on most of the popular social media sites, is yet to deny or confirm the rumor, thereby keeping the public guessing on what the true situation is between her and her co-star.
Other Roles Erin Krakow is Famous For Playing
Erin Krakow revealed in an interview she did with devotional thoughts that her interest in acting began after her brother was born; when she was 5 years of age. She went on to participate in school plays and started taking acting more seriously in high school. She would later enroll at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York.
After years of acting in theatre productions, Erin broke into the mainstream in 2010 when she landed a recurring role on Army Wives. In 2013, she had a guest role in Castle before landing the lead role in When Calls The Heart in 2014, the same year she featured in another Hallmark production titled Chance at Romance. She has since become a Hallmark staple, appearing in TV films like Finding Father Christmas (2016) and Engaging Father Christmas (2017).
