In the When Calls the Heart episode “Forever in My Heart,” while Jack (Daniel Lissing) considers buying land as he plans a future with Elizabeth (Erin Krakow), Abigail (Lori Loughlin) receives an unexpected visitor at the café. Right after she reassured the parentless Becky (Ali Skovbye) and Cody (Carter Ryan Evancic) that the three of them were meant to be together as family, the children’s aunt shows up. As the sneak peek suggests, “One knock could change everything.”
Aunt is portrayed by Anne Marie DeLuise. The Canadian-born actress is best known for her roles in Strange Empire (Mrs. Briggs), Signed, Sealed, Delivered (Samila’s Mom), Cedar Cove (Melanie Lockhart), Smallville (TV reporter Naomi Van Horn), and Higher Ground (Sophie Becker). Fun fact: She is married to actor Peter DeLuise. When Calls the Heart airs Sundays at 9pm on Hallmark.
