Erin Krakow Husband/Married, Boyfriend/Dating
One of the many things that have kept When Calls The Heart going is Erin’s character’s relationship with Aussie actor Daniel Lissing who plays the role of a Mountie named Jack Thornton
The chemistry between Erin and Daniel have had fans wishing that they become a couple in real life.
Erin and Dan know about the strong bond they share and they have a happy time taunting fans on social media, posting cozy on and off-screen snaps of themselves. However, they have never denied outrightly that they are not a couple in real life. If anything, that will just kill the fans who have a hard time believing they are not planning on getting married in real life.
Erin has never been married and neither has Dan Lissing. Also, no information about their past relationships is available to the media. Fans have seen these two facts as enough reason to conclude that they have a thing for each other in real life and could even be in a relationship.
Sadly, they both seem to be very private people when it comes to their personal lives. Maybe they just don’t want to spoil their good on-screen chemistry for the fans.
Until they decide to reveal if they are indeed dating in real life or NOT, fans will be left to just mere speculations.
In October 2017, Daniel posted a photo of himself and Erin and called him “sister,” BUT fans were not having it. One fan with the handle ladyduke42I commented on the IG post saying;
“don’t buy the “close friends” relationship or Erin’s “long term relationship” or just “on- screen chemistry.” I don’t know too many women who just sit on the lap of a guy if they are in a long term relationship unless it is the guy they are in a relationship with. C’mon Folks, I didn’t just fall off the potato truck yesterday.”
Another user nancyalex7 said:
“My husband told our friends we were just best friends just had our 42 anniv ”
However, others seemed to understand that the co-stars could most likely be just friends and nothing more with one fan with the handle niksicola likening their off-screen relationship to that of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
“I hope they remain this close – remind some me of Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winsler’s friendship Thier support of each other as they both rose in thier careers has been endearing! The world needs this feel good stuff – loyal friendships, good people. #happyfeels #friendshipgoals #coworkerenvy”
