Heartland‘s Ty Borden must be the most iconic character in Canadian TV history. And yet, we know only a few things about the actor who plays the character, Graham Wardle.
As far as picking a favorite actor goes, we are horrible at it. There are so many talented actors not only in Hollywood but also across the world that we cannot help but fall for almost all of them.
Sometimes, they play a hopeless lover and we cannot believe that a man can be so unapologetically in love. Sometimes, they play an anti-hero and we cannot believe we develop a crash on such a problematic human being. Sometimes, they play a hero and we say that’s the man anyone would want to be saved by. Sometimes, they play just a simple man having a simple daily routine and we are ensured that daily life is not as boring as it sounds.
Why do these actors make such an impact on us? Well, the key is in their ability to capture the soul of the character they are playing. Their god-given gift and hard work pay off in playing such characters, as we start to lose the line between reality and fiction. Sometimes, it reaches a point that we start to believe the actors share similar personalities with their respective characters, which makes no sense, of course, but we cannot help it.
