Since following Mitchell Kummen’s career, I have seen a young boy become a wonderful young man. He has grown so much since When Calls the Heart and even more since Horns. Last night’s premiere of Ties that Bind brings back what other shows left behind “family drama”. Mitchell Kummen plays Jeff McLean son to police detective Allison McLean (Kelli Williams). The show’s premiere was completely tense as all the characters had a lot to deal with since the imprisonment of Allison’s brother Tim Olson played by Luke Perry. The shows defining moment at least to me was seeing how all the teenagers acted in the series for me that was a strong point to see. In fact their story is what I loved most about Ties that Bind. I look forward to the next episode. So I absolutely cannot wait to see it. It is most exciting because not only does the show have a wonderful cast, but everyone works so well together. Natasha and Mitchell who play brother and sister in the series have definitely won my heart as they learn to live with the hardships of sharing their stuff with Mariah (Matreya Scarrwener) and Cameron (Rhys Matthew Bond), but seeing them become close was even more cause it gave you that feeling of just joy that they were finally being able to come together as a whole.
For Mitchell, this role has made him become an emphasis of great talent. His anger was something I never really seen and he’s become a better actor to make his feelings show through his characters he’s portrayed. I feel proud to have followed a young actor whose not only kind, but unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
If you would like to see Ties that Bind it comes Wednesday at 9pm EST on your cable network.
