Some of her other work has included parts in The Walking Dead, This Is Us, American Horror Story and Love in Store.

She’s had bit parts in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, True Blood, CSI and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

However, Virgin River has catapulted the star firmly into the spotlight with the show already greenlit for season six.

She previously told Connecticut Magazine in 2008 about her famous uncle: “He can commiserate with me about whatever difficulties I’m going through, and he tends to have a lot of really good advice.

“It’s wonderful to have a family member who’s so close, who’s also my godfather.”

With the success of Virgin River, perhaps Weaherley might even make an appearance in the show one day.
