Alexandra Breckenridge Shares BTS Video from Her Favorite Moment Filming Season 5 of ‘Virgin River’

She also teased the filming of season 6

Still from 'Virgin River' season five.

Netflix finally dropped the last two episodes of Virgin River season five, and we couldn't be more excited (and we might've watched them more than once already). But we can't stop thinking about a few weeks prior to the premiere of the “holiday episodes,” when star Alexandra Breckenridge (AKA Melinda “Mel” Monroe), 41, teased fans with a video from her favorite moment filming season five. (Oh, and she also teased the filming of season six in the process.)

“Favorite moment from filming season 5 I say we rematch in season 6!” Breckenridge wrote.

In the clip, the 41-year-old star sits alongside her co-star, Martin Henderson (who plays her on-screen love interest, Jack Sheridan). At the beginning of the video, Breckenridge starts laughing and she turns to Henderson and asks, “Have you seen those TikToks where people slap each other with tortillas?”

The This Is Us actress then proceeds to explain the trend to Henderson, and he laughs and says, “Should we do it?”

In case you missed it, Henderson and Breckenridge did end up completing the tortilla challenge, which Breckenridge documented on her Instagram page in October 2022. “Jack and Mel tortilla challenge,” the actress wrote in her caption.

For those wondering who ended up winning, it was Henderson, because Breckenridge cracked up the minute the challenge started. As seen in the video above, the American Horror Story star couldn't help herself from giggling after she gave Henderson the first slap with a tortilla.

It seems clear to us that these two have a close relationship, and on Breckenridge's latest post, fans commented on their friendship. One user wrote, “I truly don't know how they get any work done together [laughing emoji]. It's like they are laughing all the time haha.”

We can't wait to see more shenanigans between these two when they start filming season six.
