Erin Krakow Remembers Special When Calls The Heart Milestone
On Thursday, Erin Krakow posted a very special photo on her social media. She posted a photo of the very first scene, of the very first episode of When Calls The Heart. That photo was of her, portraying Elizabeth Thatcher, and Lori Loughlin, portraying Abigail Stanton. Turns out, a fan sent it to her, and Erin was thrilled at the reminder.
On Twitter, Erin wrote, “8 years ago today! A beautiful memory from the very first scene we shot of WCTH Season 1, with my forever friend. Thank you #erinkrakowloriloughlinfan from Instagram for the photo and reminder.”
The photo is of new schoolteacher Elizabeth meeting Abigail. Abigail had just lost her husband and her son to an explosion at the coal mine. This began a close friendship between the two characters, as well as the two onscreen stars.
This was not the first time that Erin has called Lori her “forever friend.” Although Loughlin’s WCTH co-stars were very quiet at the time the scandal hit, they have been especially supportive of her. That includes sharing photos with her and wishing Lori birthday greetings on social media.

That is because she is her forever friend.
