Actor Billy Christos Jr. has been sharing photos from his time on set for “When Calls the Heart” dating back to fall 2022 when he started shooting.

His first photo showed him in a doorway wearing suspenders and he wrote, “Hello, my name is Toby. I’m on the set of my new TV show. Can you guess the show?” Fans in the comments were quick to notice that his hashtags gave it away — he looks like a new student in Elizabeth Thornton’s (Erin Krakow) classroom on “When Calls the Heart.”

“Did you join the cast of ‘When Calls The Heart’? I have been hoping to see some new kids in the classroom! Hope you are having the best time!” wrote fan Heartie Hallmark, to which Christos replied, ” I ❤️ that classroom!”

He also shared a photo in October 2022 of Hope Valley’s street set and wrote, “Sometimes when I’m on the set of @wcth_tv and I look around, it feels magical with a lot of history and a lot more stories to unfold…❤️.”

Other photos Christos has posted with his co-stars include ones with Amanda Wong, Elias Leon Leacock, Johannah Newmarch, Ben Rosenbaum, Jack Wagner and Krakow.

His photos with Newmarch and Krakow praised them for teaching him so much about the business and how to be a good actor. He wrote on Newmarch’s photo, “Missing the set already. Posting a pic of the very beautiful and talented @johannahnewmarch 😍 Who was also my very first advanced acting teacher and taught me everything I know!” and he wrote on his photo with Krakow, “Sending ❤️ to the Best TV Teacher 🍎 @erinkrakow and one of the funnest person to work with on set,” to which Krakow replied, “Aw thanks so much sweet Billy! Can’t wait for more fun times in Hope Valley!”

Christos also called Rosenbaum “one of the nicest guys in Hope Valley” and referred to Wagner as an “acting legend.”

Christos’ other acting credits include Netflix’s supernatural drama “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” He shared a photo from set of himself with star Kiernan Shipka and wrote, “In the spirit of the upcoming halloween, this is a throwback pic of when I was on set of the Netflix Series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina with the lovely @KiernanShipka who was so welcoming and kind. Happy Early Halloween! What is Everybody dressing up as?”
