We were definitely shocked and devastated when we found out that Ty Borden, one of the most loved characters from Heartland was killed off in Season 13’s final episode. When we first realized that Ty was shot in the final, we at least hoped that he would be saved in the 1st episodes of Season 14. That did not happen…
We couldn’t believe how such a crucial character for the show died all of a sudden after going through much more difficult events throughout 13 seasons. However, we finally learned what was the true reason for Ty’s death, as the actor also explained in a video addressed to fans of Heartland.
It turns out it was the actor who played Ty, Graham Wardle, was the one who actually wanted Ty to be out of the show because he wanted to explore other areas for his career. In the special message video, the actor says he has been thinking about it for the last few years and that now his decision is final. He also expresses that it was time to move on and take part in other projects.
Yes, of course, we are upset that Ty is gone but we also feel grateful to the actor who gave his 13 years to play such an amazing character who had his spiritual growth over the years. We are glad that Ty was able to grow so much as a character, we are just sad that he left his wife Amy and their child so suddenly.
Graham Wardle 2022
We know you’re wondering what happened to the actor since he left Heartland. Did he move on to other projects? Well, strangely, according to his IMDB page, the actor has not played in any production after leaving Heartland. His last acting credit seems to be Heartland. Maybe Wardle is getting a rest after playing the same character for 13 years or maybe he hasn’t decided what to do next.
The actor has been occupied with a podcast since May 2020, which still continues to this day. You can find more information about his podcast on his website.
Does Graham Wardle Regret Leaving Heartland?
The last news regarding Wardle’s departure from Heartland came last year when the actor told the Canadian Press that he had felt it was in his heart to move on. But since then, we’ve never really heard from him about his feelings towards the show. So, we can’t really tell if he regrets leaving the show but we can at least assume that he is upset. It should have been difficult to walk out of a character you had been playing for more than 13 seasons.
Nonetheless, the actor said his decision was firm and final and that he had thought about it for many years before finally acting on it. It looks like there should be no reason for him to be regretful.
