We know and love Alexandra Breckenridge for her role as Melinda Monroe (Mel, for short) on Netflix’s series, Virgin River. However, we were surprised to learn that her resume included a handful of other impressive characters—even beyond Sophie on This Is Us.
As it turns out, we seemingly overlooked one of her smaller (yet, still important) roles on the popular series, American Horror Story. That’s right—Breckenridge appeared on the very first season of the FX show and again on season three.
For the show’s premiere season, Murder House, in 2011, the 39-year-old portrayed Moira O'Hara, the Harmons’ housekeeper. And although she appeared to the females in the house like an old woman, Dylan McDermott’s character saw Breckenridge’s younger version of Moira.
