Though Elizabeth Thatcher rejected Nathan Grant following his love confession in Season 8 of “When Calls the Heart,” the two have maintained their undeniable connection in the subsequent seasons. Kevin McGarry, who plays Nathan, opened up about his character’s feelings towards Elizabeth following his rejection and her engagement to his romantic rival Lucas.
“There will always be a spot in his heart for Elizabeth, and in the beginning, he’s accepting of the situation,” the actor told Media Village in 2022. During an interview with Canadian Super Channel Heart & Home, McGarry similarly discussed the evolving dynamic between the two, explaining that their connection has led to a lot of pain in the past.
“They find solace in each other, although it’s hard,” the actor shared. “And I think the fact that they just know each other so well and they’re able to call each other out on the truth of who they each are. It leads to hurt feelings sometimes, or it leads to things said, and that’s happened since they met” (per TV Shows Ace).
