ALL good things must come to an end in an actors life.

Why did Graham Wardle AKA Ty leave Heartland?

Since 2007, Wardle has been playing Ty Borden on CBC's Heartland.

After 14 years, he decided to step away from the show to explore other interests. It was reported that he felt it was time to move on from acting to spend more time on personal projects.

“I have not taken this decision lightly. I have spent a few years now contemplating and trying to figure out how to honor myself and make this transition and honor the show“ he said in a statement to fans.

“I felt in my heart it was time to move in a new direction.”

To bring his character to an end, the show decided to kill of the character with a blood clot that developed from his gun shot wound.

Season 14, which premiered on July 8, 2021, started with Ty's funeral.

Wardle's co-star, Amber Marshall, revealed her support for his decision, but also talked about how his character will play an important role in the show moving forward.

“This is a story that people might not want to see in the beginning,” Marshall told Postmedia. “I think there’s going to be a lot of people devastated by this. But I believe the journey through this season is so important for viewers to watch and to know that death is real.”
