If Virgin River star Alexandra Breckenridge looks familiar, it's because she's graced another well-known TV series. The Netflix star, known for her Mel role in the feel-good and scenic series, was actually on Buffy The Vampire Slayer back in the day, making a cameo long before her name was famous.

Alexandra only featured in one episode of the series starring Sarah Michelle-Gellar - she played Kit Holburn, one of the students at fictional Sunnydale High. Check out the details, plus Alexandra's latest below.

Alexandra continued: "Emotions are heightened right now and this show provides the perfect sort of soft landing and entertainment for people dealing with loss or going through what they're going through [with the coronavirus pandemic]."

Fans, who also adore the epic scenery - the series is set in California but is shot in Vancouver, Canada - also got their favorite star opening up to add: "Sometimes you don't want to watch something that's gonna really take you down some kind of analytical path."
