Andrew William Walker is a popular and beloved Canadian actor on the Hallmark Channel. He was born on June 9, 1979.

Andrew actually started performing in his lunch-time drama program in elementary school. His teacher saw his acting ability and started sending him out on auditions. By the time he was 12 years old, he had become addicted to acting and began getting professional acting roles by the time he was 14.

Andrew played football while at Vanier College. He was given a full scholarship to play at Boston College. That was short-lived after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during spring camp. The accident ended his football career, and he focused entirely on acting.

Beginning of Andrew Walker's Acting Career

Andrew started his acting career in Montreal with a recurring role in Student Bodies, a series that lasted from 1996 to 1997. His big break came in 1997 with his debut in Laserhawk. Throughout the years, he appeared in several movies, sometimes more than one at a time. In 2006, he co-starred in Steel Toes which earned him an ACTRA Award for Best Actor.

In 2007, he had a leading role in Lifetime's film Abducted: Fugitive For Love. From time to time, he made guest appearances on one-hour television shows including CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, ER, Without a Trace, Reba, and The Big Bang Theory.

As you can see, Andrew was already getting various roles before he began his long career on the Hallmark Channel with starring roles in two-hour movies.

Walker's Hallmark Acting Career

You can see in the chart below the dates and names of Andrew's Hallmark movies from the first one in 2012 to the present time with only one year not having a role in a Hallmark movie. Notice that he acted alongside his real-life friend Nikki DeLoach three times, more than any other leading lady.

Also, notice the years he starred in back-to-back movies. See that he starred in two Hallmark movies in 2015, three in 2016, 2017, and 2018. His list includes two movies in 2020 and 2021. The Hallmark actor says an ideal time between movies is about two months so he can have time to study his script and spend time with his family. An exception was when he finished filming Wedding March 4 on a Friday in Vancouver, and he started shooting Love in Design in Winnipeg the following Monday.

In the chart below is also a brief synopsis of Walker's 21 Hallmark movies. Fans love him so much that they are waiting to see him in more movies in the upcoming years.
