Ava Tran as Parker on Heartland (Heartland)

Hey Heartland fans!  Before I get into today's blog, I just want to let you all know that there are spoilers to follow, especially for the fans outside of Canada who have not yet been able to watch the beginning of Season 14.  That said, I want to do a quick recap of the week in case you missed any of the important messages we shared surrounding the story line that began in episode 1401.  

For those of you who missed Graham Wardle, Amber Marshall and the Executive Producers of Heartland weighing in on the first episode of Heartland Season 14, take a look at the 3 special blogs that came out earlier this week:


Season 14, Episode 2

In this Sunday's NEW episode, we get a chance to meet Parker, played by 12-year-old Ava Tran. We saw Parker briefly in episode 1401 but didn't get to find out a lot about her until now. She's first introduced in the episode by Jade as her "Mom's new husband's daughter", which is really a long-winded way of saying step-sister.  I guess Jade isn't quite used to her yet but that doesn't stop Parker from somewhat reluctantly trotting onto the scene with a new Paint horse that was gifted to her.  I wonder if she will have an 'in' with another certain someone who had a close connection with a Paint horse in the past?  

If you want to find out more about Ava Tran and her new Heartland character, Parker; CBC Kids published an article recently about making TV during a pandemic where Ava weighs in. The Calgary Herald also shared some details recently about Heartland's newest cast member.  I would definitely give both a read. 

And to give you a little more insight into this weekend's new episode, here's a little preview of what's to come:

That's all for today.  Don't forget, I'll be sharing a "First Look" as usual every Friday, starting tomorrow, so be sure to subscribe to the Heartland Youtube channel and be one of the first to see it.
