Interview: Pascale Hutton
It’s certainly been an interesting three seasons for the When Calls the Heart character Rosemary LaVeaux. She’s gone from one of the most disliked characters on the series to one of the most beloved.
Introduced at the end of season one of When Calls the Heart, Rosemary LeVeaux swooped into Coal Valley and really shook things up in the quiet town. No other character on the hit Hallmark Channel series has been more polarizing than Rosemary. For some, she was a breath of fresh air to the series, for others, she’s an obstacle that stands in the way of Elizabeth and Jack’s happiness.Read more
Canadian born actress Pascale Hutton is definitely carving out her place in Hollywood. The Gemini and Leo award winning actress has spent the last several years building an impressive resume in film and television. She’s had memorable roles on hit shows such as Sanctuary, Flashpoint and Intelligence. She has also had guest appearances on series such as Supernatural, Fringe and Royal Pains.
Pascale starred as Krista Ivarson on the hit Canadian series Arctic Air which ran three seasons on the CBC network. On the big screen she’s starred in films such as Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, A Simple Curve and The Art of War II: Betrayal.
A graduate of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, she currently stars on the hit Hallmark series When Calls The Heart playing the somewhat misunderstood Rosemary LeVeaux. Pascale was kind enough to sit down with us to talk about her current series, playing strong, independent characters and what she likes to do to relax.
Pascale Hutton – It was great. I love that character so much. It’s very different from what I normally play. I had just wrapped season three of Arctic Air where I play a very strong, forthright female character. She is very confident, very decisive and keeps her emotions very close to her heart. So, to go from that to When Calls The Heart which is so light and full and the character is larger than life was such a welcome change. You know, you play the same types of characters for a while it’s fun to shake things up and that is what this character was for me on When Calls the Heart.
