Sad details about the life of Hallmark star Tyler Hynes

The following article contains mentions of gun violence.

Tyler Hynes is one of Hallmark’s most famous leading men. His legions of fans (who he refers to as “Tyler enthusiasts”) are, of course, huge supporters. It may seem like Hynes’ life as an actor is a dream, but like everyone else, he has experienced tragedy and difficult times. He sustained an injury on set while playing the lover in Hallmark’s “Always Amore.” The film tells the story of widowed Elizabeth, played by Autumn Reeser, who teams up with Hynes’ character Ben to bring her late husband’s restaurant back to prosperity.

In an interview with Remark the Show on YouTube, Hynes revealed, “I suffered a concussion during the last two days of shooting this movie.” He said he sustained a head injury in a fall while filming the final scene. “Yeah, I’ll tell you, I’ve had a few falls in the last two days of shooting – this one really knocked me out and yeah, I was totally freaked out.”

Hynes and Kris, one of the interviewers, joked that sometimes it can be funny when someone falls down, but no one was there to witness Hynes’ big fall. He continued, “So no, unfortunately I was alone, so, you know, with my head in my hand, with blood in my hand, thinking, ‘Great, I have to go to work now.'”

Tyler Hynes lost a dear friend while filming “Always Amore”

While Autumn Reeser felt connected to her role in Always Amore, Tyler Hynes used a scene in the film to pay tribute to a friend who had passed away. On Instagram, Hynes mentioned that he had seen fans talking about their own experiences with grief. He expressed his support to them by dedicating the Hallmark film to a family very dear to him who had lost a loved one named Kathy during Hynes’ filming.

Hynes described how sudden the death was, and explained that Kathy’s son is his best friend. Hynes had to film one of the final “Always Amore” scenes shortly after speaking with his best friend, and explained what that meant: “A scene that deals with the loss of a loved one. It was surreal to say the least, but her life and her death gave me things that I won’t discuss here, but that will haunt me forever. For the better. For her and her family, I changed one line in the film to silently pay my respects and show them my love.” Hynes did not say which line he changed.

Hynes said he shared the news of Kathy’s death because she was a Hallmark viewer, and re-dedicated “Always Amore” to her and her loved ones. Hynes continued, “We want to find a way to move on, but carry the people we love with us forever.”

Tyler Hynes was present at the shooting at the 2024 Super Bowl parade

Janel Parrish and Tyler Hynes starred together in a parody trailer for “Falling For Football,” a Hallmark parody about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance. To celebrate Kelce and his team’s Super Bowl victory, Hynes and Parrish later participated in the Kansas City Chiefs 2024 Super Bowl victory parade on February 14.

Unfortunately, shots were fired at the celebration. Several people were injured and one person was killed. Fortunately, Hynes and Parrish were unharmed. An administrator of an Andrew Walker fan page on Facebook confirmed to an administrator of the Hynes Headquarters Instagram page that Hynes was not among the victims: “FROM ANDREW TYLER IS SAFE.” (Walker and Hynes were co-stars in “Three Wise Men and a Baby” and Walker is married to Hynes’ cousin.)

According to Heavy, Hynes shared a white heart on his Instagram story following the tragic event. He later uploaded a video with footage from before the shooting and its aftermath. “My thoughts are with everyone affected by this unfortunate event, near and far,” he wrote. “A world where this doesn’t exist would be beautiful. More important than my personal experience is the recognition of the beauty of this city and its people. Every single person I was with and met that day is as lovely as can be. And every single person I was with in the moments we see on the news, I couldn’t be more proud of.” He added a bandaged heart emoji and “KC.”
