Robyn Carr Chats with Actor Martin Henderson About Virgin River


(light electronic music) – We’re privileged to be
interviewing Mark Henderson. What do you like about
working on a TV series based on a fan favorite book series? – I think it’s horrible. (laughs) No, here you have huge fan base, so there’s a level of expectation that, as an actor, one could be quite undone by. Because it’s sort of
akin to being on a show, like say a stage production,
with a full house, and you’ve got all these people,
and they’re lapping it up, and they love the characters,
and they’re loving the story, and then you’ve got to sort of walk in at the end of
the show, and maintain some kind of expectation. – Oh, you’re gonna meet
their expectations. You’re doing great. How do you like working
with Alexandra? She’s- – I love Alexandra. – You guys seem to have a great chemistry. – We do. I think, at the heart, there’s a degree of, just mutual respect. Is also parallels what the
characters have for one another, because that’s essentially
what the friendship’s built on. And I think that’s why the love and the romance that is there, is the whole drive of the show, in a way, comes out of a genuine friendship. And I think, luckily, Alex and
I have that with each other. She’s a wonderful team player,
and a fabulous actress, and she’s pretty good on the eyes too, so- – No kidding, right? – Makes my job pretty easy. – If you could play any other character, in Virgin River, who would that be? – I think Ricky. There’s
something so genuine about that character. His
character’s at an age, there’s still an innocence,
there’s a naivete, and there’s this sense of the
world’s opening up to him. And there’s just something
really endearing, I think, about a human being that is so
visibly vulnerable and honest about what it is they’re struggling with. And I think, given his past,
the struggles that he’s had, there’s just something
very human about that. – I think Ricky’s cool too. Thank you for playing
Jack in Virgin River. – Oh, you’re welcome. Thank you
for creating him. Thank you. (light electronic music)

  1. Esperando la serie con tanta emoción como cuando leí los libros 😍 Amo la pareja de Jack y Mel 😍😍

  2. I've never read a Robyn Carr book. I am VERY interested in seeing this movie…and ummm Martin Henderson…WOWZA…good Lord he is gorgeous…LOL wonder if I should read this book first? Anyone ??

  3. If you’ve never read a Robin car book this is the series to read I have read everyone of them actually listen to everyone of them on Audible at least 20 times it takes you away to places in Virgin River that are so pleasurable and enjoyable that you are there with them!

  4. Really nice! Missing a well done Show, too bad for only 10 episodes, it took more.

  5. I absolutely LOVE this show! It is a beautiful blend of two other series I am a fan of, Everwood and Off the Map. As a long time follower of Martin Henderson it is so exciting to see him in this role. In fact, all the actors/actresses have done a fabulous job interpreting and portraying their characters in a unique way. I am extremely invested in all the character’s stories and I can’t wait to see what season two has in store for them.

  6. I’ve been an avid fan of the Virgin River series for many years and most of Robyn Carr’s books. I realize an adaptation of a book to television can bring changes, but Doc and Hope MARRIED?!?!? Jack has a problem with alcohol? His father was abusive to his mother? The General who is beyond proud of Jack? I’m having a really hard time getting past this.

  7. Very fine family show. It’s just reminded me of my home town, of how people very much depending to each other litterally almost everything.
    Just done watching the whole espisodes of S1. Can’t wait for the next season coming on Netflix!🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️

  10. I have watched a lot of series in many different languages and very few I watch entire 10+ episodes. Watching Virgin River gave me this sense of peace, joy, yes watched all season 1(frequently fast foward or skip). Virgin River has great stories, nice characters, romantic. Looking forward to Season 2

Good job, Netflix! And huge kudos to the amazing people that make Virgin River so, so , so excellent. If there isn't a season 2 of this show, well…I might just have to cry. As for Martin Henderson, he is such a pleasure to watch; he's devastatingly handsome & his acting is beyond fabulous. Actually, ALL of the acting on this show is above and beyone!
