Who Is Lauren Hammersley, AKA Charmaine on ‘Virgin River’?
*Warning: Minor spoilers ahead*
It’s officially time to give our brain a refresh ahead of the Virgin River season three premiere. Since we always enter “detective mode” the moment we recognize an actress on TV, we compiled a list of everything you need to know about Lauren Hammersley, who plays Charmaine on Netflix’s Virgin River. (You’ll thank us later.)
1. Who is Lauren Hammersley?
Lauren Hammersley is a Canadian actress, who’s widely known for playing Charmaine in Netflix’s Virgin River. Although she was raised in Surrey, British Columbia, she currently lives in Toronto.
2. What is 'Virgin River'?
The series centers around Melinda “Mel” Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), who moves to Virgin River to get a fresh start on life. However, she soon realizes that small town living isn’t quite as simple as she expected.
The second season picks up where season one ends: Mel learns that her love interest, Jack (Martin Henderson), is expecting a child with Charmaine (Hammersley), so she packs her bags. However, her little trip doesn’t last long after she realizes that she must come to terms with herself and her past before she can truly make this her home.
Netflix recently announced that Virgin River season three will premiere on July 9, so mark your calendars.
3. What else has Lauren Hammersley starred in?
Hammersley began her acting career with small guest roles on shows like John Doe, Single White Spenny and Saving Hope. In 2012, she starred as Lisa Mason on Mr. D, where she appeared in multiple seasons. Simultaneously, she played Adele (Felix’s half-sister) in Orphan Black. Other film credits include Remember My Story, Stag and Bloody Mary.
4. Is she on social media?
Of course. Hammersley can be found on both Twitter (@le_hammer) and Instagram (@hammerdoodle), where she has official accounts. While her IG is filled with candid photos, nature shots and inspirational quotes, her tweets are more personal, ranging from what she’s watching to her love for Tim Horton’s.
5. What can we expect from Charmaine in season three?
Without giving too much away, Virgin River season three picks up right where we left off in the previous installment. You know, right after Jack was shot at the bar. We don’t know who the culprit is (at least not yet), though many believe it could be Charmaine. Based on the trailer, Jack seems OK. But his relationship with Mel is put to the test when people start pressuring them to start a family.
