Wise, calm, and legendary-the qualities both Jack Bartlett and Shaun Johnston have in common. The surprising part? Shaun Johnston is Jack Bartlett, specifically in the series Heartland. It turns out his character is a lot similar to him in real life.
Now, let’s find out what the Canadian actor did before playing Jack Bartlett.
Shaun Johnston as Heartland Cast Jack Bartlett
If you haven’t heard of Shaun Johnston yet, he’s most known for his portrayal as Jack Bartlett, a loving father, and a legendary rodeo in the CBC television series Heartland.
Shaun was the only actor to ever cast as Jack, meaning that he’s been in the show ever since it started up until now. Johnston’s dedication and loyalty show how far he has gone in the series.
Since the show started, he has been with fellow actress Amber Marshall, being the grandfather to her character.
Is Shaun Johnston leaving Heartland?
It may be a sad event if Johnston finally leaves Heartland after countless seasons with the cast and crew of the show.
It was almost accurate as his character, Jack Bartlett, had a heart attack in season 6. This event has caused fans to speculate whether or not Johnston will be back in the show.
Fortunately, Johnston is still in the show. The producers have no plans whatsoever to remove Jack Bartlett from the front. The heart attack was just a suspenseful part of building up the season’s finale (whew.)

A 1.8-meter tall actor has done more than he could ever imagine in his acting career. With over ten movies and television series he partook into, it’s no wonder Shaun is enjoying a rewarding career.

They met at their university, and since then, they’ve stood their ground for 30 years and happily married each other when the time came.
Shaun and his wife, Sue are parents, giving birth to two sons; both are successful in their respective tracks. The son’s name is Shea Johnston, but unfortunately, we could not find the brother’s name.
Talking about Shaun’s wife, Sue Johnston is also a phenomenal actor in the past and even today. She is also an actress for several films, but her work is mainly on television shows in the past ’till today.
To this day, Sue Johnston still gets roles left and right. Even though she’s retirement age, Sue is not yet ready to leave the entertainment industry.
Her personal life was a bit rocky, having two marriages with Neil Johnston & David Pammenter and being divorced with the two after their wedding.

But finally, she found Shaun during their time in university, and ever since then, they have been strong and happy together with their two beautiful children.
