Some time ago, when I was watching one of my favorite mystery series, “Garage Sale Mystery,” I noticed a young actor who seemed to truly shine in his role as the love interest of Lori Loughlin’s daughter. At that moment, I was convinced that we hadn’t seen the last of the actor Madison Smith, and seeing him in the role of the despised but misunderstood Roy in Hallmark’s “When Calls the Heart,” was an unexpected treat. Recently, I had the supreme privilege to chat with this accomplished actor, and our delightful discussion entailed all things Hallmark and beyond.

What inspired you to become an actor?

I grew up playing sports--hockey and baseball. When I was about 20, I was playing baseball in college, but I kept wondering if there was something

The moment I tweeted about being on the set, within a couple days, I had more tweets on my twitter page than I had ever had before. The Hearties are loyal and excited. At least 10-20 fans have actually put me in a group of “new people” on the show and told everyone to follow me. I know right now that some people absolutely hate Roy, but they are still supportive of me. I’m kind of like one of those characters you love to hate.

Right now, I don’t really have any aspirations to become a director, but who can say? I love every aspect of the industry, and I wouldn’t ever say no to directing if the opportunity arises. This is just the greatest industry in the world.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I have a softball team that plays every Sunday in the summer, and Marcus Rosner has been on my team the past few years. I also still have a server job at the Cactus Club Cafe in Vancouver. I don’t work this job because I need the money, but it is that it is a fantastic place to work. I meet lots of wonderful people, and it is so much fun to be out there interacting with the general public.

I would like to say in closing that I am so happy to be a part of this great show “When Calls the Heart.” I hope and pray that Roy will return for season four. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the wonderful
