Personal Narrative-When Calls The Heart

948 Words4 Pages
This season on “When Calls the Heart” has been a fantastic time of growth in the community, and many of the featured new faces have been the children of Hope Valley. Yet again, Hearties were introduced to a character named Robert who didn’t get along with Cody in the beginning, but Miss Thatcher never gave up on him. With his signature curly hair and spot on facial expressions, we have not been able to overlook this character nor the boy who has infused him with life, Jaiven Natt. Recently, I had the opportunity to chat with this 11-year-old who has become a delightful part of this weekly Hallmark escape.

What inspired you to become an actor at your age?

I always thought actors had such fun on TV, and it was something I really wanted to do. We happened to hear about an acting camp, and my mom asked if I wanted to go. Of course I did, and we had to go to LA for the camp. My mom had a GPS to get us there, but we got lost. We stopped off at a store, and my mom wasn’t sure we should keep going. I said I really wanted to go, and I begged her to keep going. And then we found the camp, and I had such a great time. My coach at the camp was a real $$#Break#$$ But after talking with this young man (who honestly has a delectable sense of humor and is quite grounded, thanks to his tremendous parents), there is no doubt in my mind that he is on the right course, and he is just the sort of person who will resonate with fans now and in the years to come. I would say to watch out for this young man as he is on a path that will ultimately bring him (and us) great joy and fulfillment. Be sure to follow him every step of this magnificent journey as you watch him on “When Calls the Heart” every Sunday on the Hallmark channel, and follow him on twitter (
