Beloved Canadian series Heartland this week is returning to streaming service UP Faith & Family for its 15th season. Now one of the longest-running scripted dramas in its native country, and based on the book series by Lauren Brooke, the series follows the adventures of sisters Amy and Louise "Lou" Fleming on their Albertan-based family ranch. Throughout its run characters have come and gone, but series leads Amber Marshall (Amy) and Michelle Morgan (Lou) have remained constants. For Morgan, joining the series in 2007 was something she wanted, yet never envisioned as a major part of her life. "I definitely remember auditioning for it because I remember really resonating with the character of Lou," she shared in an exclusive MediaVillage interview. "Sometimes you audition, and hope you've done the best you can. But I immediately read it and I felt, 'Oh, I know who this is, and I know how she feels because I was at a similar place in my life as her.'
