Kavan Smith is a Canadian actor who has appeared in several Hallmark Channel productions over the years. Despite having had such a long and thriving acting career, movie lovers recently seem to associate Kavan with When Calls The Heart, Hallmark Channel’s most-watched and longest-running TV series so far. In When Calls The Heart, Kavan plays the role of Leland “Lee” Coulter opposite Pascale Hutton. Because of the chemistry between the actor and Pascale, many have come to believe they are married in real life. But here’s a shocker!
Kavan Smith Isn’t Married To Pascale Hutton
Due to their roles on When Calls The Heart, Kavan Smith and Pascale Hutton have widely been considered an on-screen couple to note. This is impressive considering neither of them was part of the cast at the start of the series; however, they quickly became the viewers’ favorites as the series kept progressing. They have also regularly been referred to as ‘the best couple on TV’ by devoted fans of the show. This has since fueled the rumor that they are either married or at least, romantically involved with each other. But, how close to the truth is this rumor?
The rumors couldn’t be further from the truth; first off, it is on public record that Pascale Hutton got married in 2002 to Danny Dorosh, a fellow actor. In the years following their wedding, she has had at least two kids with Danny. And since there’s no record of any divorce ever between Pascale and her husband, this completely rules out any possibility of a marital relationship existing between her and Kavan.
