Heartland makes us feel a lot of things, and since we’ve listed some of the biggest tearjerker scenes already, I think it’s time to list the scenes that make us happy, smile or laugh! Enjoy these funny Heartland moments this week :)
Thank you, sweetie! :) I hope you keep on enjoying it.
x Should be a simple day. No extras, no more than 2 actors at a time in a controlled setting. But there are animals in every scene!
x Great seeing Kerry James as Caleb in all scenes this morning.
x Director Jim Donovan is a hero at home. His kids love Heartland and are pretty excited that their dad is directing these two episodes.
x After a 4-day work week there are two days left on these 2 episodes. That will be Monday and Tuesday. One scene left today.
x And that’s a wrap for the week. Have a good weekend, all. Some of the cast and crew are going to unwind at a little gathering now.
FROM JC: WHO’S ON SET?
Well, it’s another interesting day on set today. Amber has asked me to tell you that today, they are in the Studio and Amber’s dog Remi (for those who don’t know) and Lobo are both working like dogs today (ha ha ha). Plus there are 3 scenes taking place in the Barn Office and the rest are in the Heartland house. So now you are in the know.
Did I mention to you that Amber has sent me a super-cool photo of her and Gilman with a really great little story? Hmmm should I post today or tomorrow? Happy Friday! JC

x After a day inside and outside of Maggies in High River all scenes today are inside the Calgary studio and all from episode 608.
x There’s no sight of Amber Marshall on set today as her character Amy isn’t needed. I imagine she is enjoying the outdoors somewhere. :)
x Hmm, I tweeted too soon about Amber Marshall. She’s arrived at lunch for a read through of episode 609 which starts filming next Wednesday.
x Misunderstanding between couples is often a cause for conflict and drama on Heartland. It’s happening again — though not between Amy and Ty.
x Last scenes today are inside the barn office and that is where filming will pick up bright and early tomorrow.
This post is going to take a slight turn from my typical updates. I want to take a moment to talk about impersonations, imposters and fraud.
I believe that you can be whoever you want to be. Each and every human being controls who they are and how others perceive them. If you want to be respected by others, then you need to first respect yourself and those around you. If you want others to be proud of you, then you need to be proud of yourself and others. If you share what you have, others will want to share with you. This pattern will also continue in the negative direction. If you hurt others, expect to hurt back. When you put others down, you are only alleviating your own self-pity temporarily.
I have always found the image of fame and fortune very false. And maybe that is because to a certain degree it is. So much of what we see and hear in the media is a bold story of the fragmented truth that lies below. The photos and captions that line the magazine shelves are a distant grasp of what is really going on in the lives of normal people who are viewed as “stars.” Lets face it… no one is perfect. This world would be a very boring place if everyone were on the same page. It is always a mystery to me why many of these people in which society highlights are closely followed. What do we as a society gain by knowing who is dating who, or who cheated on who, or who may have cellulite on their backside? REALLY?
Why not instead focus on great achievements and things that will inspire us to be the best we can be? I’m not saying this to stop any of you from reading People Magazine or watching Entertainment Tonight, I simply want to address the question of “How does this better me?”
After catching a small glimpse of being in the media myself, I started to see things in a whole new light. I also started to see people in a whole new way. I think that the community this Facebook page has created is extraordinary. It is filled with many inspirational stories and people who really do make a difference. I am so glad I can be a part of that.
My presence has also created something that I would not have guessed. People who feel so strongly about my role in the public that they want it to be theirs. But this is not about creating a voice or identity for themselves, it is about impersonating someone else in order to achieve a level of self-want. Each time a new “Amber Marshall” account surfaces I wonder, “how can I help these people?” I am not mad at them, I only want to help them create their own identity. Anyone who feels the need to pretend to be someone else is surely not happy with who they already are. But lets not forget… it is you who creates who you are and how others perceive you.
It is one thing to make a fan page to honor those you look up to, but it is a whole other thing entirely to pretend to be that person. Now lets look at my job. I pretend to be someone else every day! But the person who I impersonate is a fictitious character, and at the end of the day, I leave “Amy” at work.
If you take anything away from reading this post, I hope it be that everyone is unique and worthy of being who he or she wants to be. Know that when others put you down, it is only because they are not happy with themselves, and it has nothing to do with you. Lets be proud of who we are.

x A long day yesterday means production is starting a little later today. With no acting animals on set there should be no surprises.
x It’s a busy day for background casting director Marcy and assistant Mara as the day calls for 30 background performers (extras)!
x Dean Bennett is meeting with Director of Photography Craig Wrobleski during lunch. Dean will be directing episodes 609 and 610.
x After one of the area’s warmest months on record, August is continuing the trend. No more exteriors for the rest of this block though.
