Kristian Bruun, who is known for his role as Murdoch Mysteries cast member Constable Slugger Jackson, is sharing his emotions with fans after Murdoch Mysteries Season 11 Episode 1. Beware that this article contains a major spoiler alert.

Kristian Bruun joined Murdoch Mysteries in 2012 and remained one of the show’s viewers favorite cast members until 2017. As Constable Slugger Jackson, Bruun portrayed a character who some fans perceived as a gentle giant who had a huge heart and was committed to his job.

As Constable Jackson, Bruun especially impressed Murdoch Mysteries viewers during the Christmas specials. Jackson’s excitement about the Christmas tree and Christmas festivities sparked many warm memories among the show’s viewers.

During Murdoch Mysteries Season 10, Bruun’s character became even more involved in Murdoch’s mysteries. And just as fans enjoyed his deeper involvement in the events of Station House No. 4, he gets killed off.
