Daniel Lissing most recently starred in the popular Hallmark Channel original series “When Calls the Heart” in the role of Constable Jack Thornton for five seasons opposite Erin Krakow and Lori Loughlin. Previously, he was cast as the series regular role of Lt. James King in ABC's “Last Resort” directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and produced by Shawn Ryan (“The Shield,” “The Unit”). This highly sought-after role gave Lissing the opportunity to star opposite Hollywood heavyweights Andre Braugher (Glory), Robert Patrick (The Terminator) and Scott Speedman (“Felicity”) as his first role in the US.
One of Australia’s rising stars, Daniel was also a series regular (“Conrad”) on the ABC-TV series “Crownies” and played the lead role in the David Gould–directed film The Cure, which shot in New Zealand in 2012. Additional credits include the feature film John Doe directed by Kel Dolen and numerous television series, including “Cops: LAC” (Nine), “Out of the Blue” (Southern Star/BBC/Ten), “Packed to the Rafters” (Seven) and “Home and Away” (Seven).
Lissing is also a popular singer/songwriter and performs to packed houses all over Sydney. It is worth noting is that he has performed for the Australian troops serving overseas in East Timor (Pacific Islands) and was formally recognized for his peacekeeping efforts by the Australian Defence Force.
Lissing was chosen by Inside Film Magazine as one of “Australia’s Rising Talents” and Australia’s TV Week Magazine included him in their “Australia's Sexiest Blokes on Television” issue.
