With roles in popular television series like The Walking Dead, This is Us, and Virgin River, you’d probably expect to find Alexandra Breckenridge living amongst her peers in star-studded Los Angeles.
Well, she tried that. But, like her Virgin River character Mel Monroe, it turns out she couldn’t resist the appeal of small-town living.
Breckenridge, who was born in Connecticut and grew up in California, married Katy Perry’s guitarist Casey Hooper in 2015. After welcoming a son and daughter in the following two years, the young family decided to eschew Hollywood norms by trading in the City of Angels for the quiet suburbs of Atlanta.
