1. Who is Nicola Cavendish?

She’s a talented actress, director and playwright, who hails from the U.K. Although she got her start in theater, she has since made a name for herself as an on-screen actress. The actress previously revealed that she puts her heart and soul into every project.

“I feel such a huge responsibility to make these people real. You borrow from the deepest parts of your own knowledge and experiences,” she said. “Be they pleasant or painful, unforgettable or completely banal, you're taking that up out of your memory tissue and pulling it to the foreground on behalf of the character, because she needs it, because she knows what abandonment is, what it means to feel out of control.”

2. Does she play Connie on 'Virgin River'?

That’s 100 percent accurate. She plays Connie, the owner of Virgin River’s General Store. Although she’s technically not a main character, she’s still a respected resident of the small town. In season three, Connie receives more screen time after welcoming her troubled niece, Lizzie (Sarah Dugdale), into her home.
