'When Calls the Heart': Watch Lucas Make His Debut in Hope Valley by Performing a Clever Magic Trick
ET was first to chat with McNally on the show's Vancouver set last year, where he teased, “Lucas is a good guy, he's got good intentions, he loves the excitement of chance so he's big into gambling and playing poker.

Love and drama will continue to unfold on this Sunday’s episode titled, ‘A Vote of Confidence.' Bill will turn to an old friend to help track down gunrunners that are responsible for the deaths of Mounties. Elizabeth will use her gentle guidance to help one of her students stand up for himself, while Rosemary and Lee help out with Baby Jack and Carson and Faith reevaluate their relationship.
And, a special announcement for the #hearties: Chris McNally and fellow newcomer Kevin McGarry will be stopping by ET together next week, so make sure you tweet @DeidreBehar @ETnow with your burning questions for the new hunks of Hope Valley!
