Read on to find out everything you need to know about Graham Wardle’s career and personal life.
Graham Wardle Bio
Graham Wardle was born on September 6, 1986, in Mission, British Columbia. He grew up in New Westminster, near Vancouver, with his five siblings.
Although Graham has always been fascinated by the entertainment industry, his involvement with film and television, which began at the age of 6, was completely unplanned.
Graham and his mother happened to find themselves in a room reserved for children to audition. Missing the chance was out of the question, Grahan auditioned and got his very first appearance as actors in toy commercials for people like Micro Machines and Nerf.
At the age of 12, Graham got his first role in a television series in The Sentinel. This was followed by appearances on shows such as The New Addams Family (1999), The Outer Limits (2001), Life as We Know It (2004), and Supernatural (2005).
As his career progressed, Graham honed his acting skills by studying at the Motion Picture and Production Program at Capilano University in Vancouver. He graduated in 2007.

The same year he graduated, Graham played the lead in In the Land of Women. Also in 2007, he was selected for the lead role of Ty Borden in Heartland, which was to become his most popular role.
Heartland was incredibly successful. In 2015, it became the longest-running one-hour script drama in the history of Canadian television series, surpassing Street Legal.
The series produced the movie A Heartland Christmas (2010), in which Graham resumed his role as Ty Borden. Heartland celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016.
Graham’s role has earned him a handful of accolades. He has been nominated three times (2009, 2010, and 2012) for the Leo Award for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series.
Between his appearance in Heartland, Graham has starred in a number of other films. These include That One Night (2008), Yesterday (2009), Mon Ami (2012), and the Syfy television movie Grave Halloween (2013).
With all of these appearances, Graham has amassed a net worth estimated at $3 million.
As he revealed on his website, Graham has a passion for mythology and regularly studies the works of Alan Watts and Joseph Campbell. Graham sells goods on his website and donates all proceeds to charity.
The chemistry between Graham and his Heartland match against Amy Fleming (played by Amber Marshall) is so intense that fans wish they were a real couple. Sadly, it’s just a rumor, but you can’t twist it, because Graham is in an equally blissful relationship in real life.
After a period of dating, Graham tied the knot with Allison Wardle in 2015. Amber Marshall on the other hand is also a married woman. She married Shawn Turner in 2013.
Her marriage to separated people is almost unbelievable for Heartland fans. Every time Graham posts a photo of Allison on Social, fans are always quick to express their incredulity.
“so beautiful. It’s hard to believe that Amy and Ty are married to different people. Well, I guess it’s not Amy and Ty, but Amber and Graham”.
In another case in 2013, a Heartland fan called another fan because he suggested that Amber and Graham should date each other in real life.
keanaboobonna: “WHY CANT U DATE IN REAL LIFE LIKE PLEASE”
He got this reply;
_heartland_786_: “@keanaboobonna You need to understand that both Amber and Graham are in love with different people. They are both happily married and I’m sure they get annoyed when people tell them to date in real life. Graham loves Alison and Amber loves Shaun. Let’s leave it at that now can we?”
Although Graham answers his fans’ questions with simple text messages, he can be very private when it comes to his personal life.
His wife Allison Wardle is not a celebrity and does not have a social media account, making it incredibly difficult to get information about her. Graham himself revealed that Allison is not on social media.
