‘When Calls the Heart’ Actor Mamie Laverock on Life Support After Balcony Fall

Mamie Laverock, a 19-year-old actor with Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart, is on life support after falling from a five-story walkway while under medical care at a Vancouver hospital.

According to a GoFundMe page launched by her family, Laverock was rushed on May 11 to a Winnipeg hospital by her mother, Nicole, after what was described as a “medical emergency.” But an update from Laverock’s family indicates on May 26 she fell from a balcony walkway at a Vancouver hospital after being transferred there as part of her recovery.

“Mamie, who has been in intensive treatment for the past two weeks, was escorted out of a secure unit of the hospital and taken up to a balcony walkway from which she fell five stories. She sustained life threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support,” the family’s fundraising campaign page states.

“We are all devastated, in shock, at this intensely difficult time,” Laverock’s parents, Rob and Nicole, added in their update. The tragic setback in Laverock’s hospital care and recovery prompted an outpouring of concern from Hallmark and series colleagues.

“We are deeply saddened to hear the news about Mamie. As a beloved member of our When Calls the Heart community, we wish her and her family peace, comfort, and many prayers during this difficult time,” Hallmark Media said in a statement obtained by THR.

Johannah Newmarch, who plays Laverock’s onscreen mother, Molly Sullivan, on When Calls the Heart, urged fans on her X page (formerly Twitter) to donate to the GoFundMe page. “I love this wonderful family so much, and my heart is broken. Such a devastating time for them and all who care deeply for sweet Mamie. Please help if you can. They need all the support they can get to make it through this nightmare. Thank you,” Newmarch wrote on the social media platform.

“I just donated. If you have the means to do so, I hope you will too. Link in bio,” co-star Erin Krakow wrote on her Instagram page.

Laverock appeared between 2014 and 2023 in When Calls the Heart in the role of Rosaleen Sullivan. Her other TV credits include Psych, The Killing Game, Wedding of Dreams, A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Spotlight on Christmas TV movie.

The GoFundMe Page had raised $15,560 toward a $25,000 goal on May 28.
