We’ve become pretty good at spotting our favorite TV actors on the big and small screens. However, it’s not every day we learn that seven stars (!) from two of our go-to television shows—Virgin River and Manifest—all guest-starred on the same series. Allow us to explain.
If you’re like us, you’ve probably already binged all three seasons of Netflix’s drama Virgin River, which dropped its latest installment last month. In addition, we’ve also blazed through every episode of Manifest season three, which was added to the streaming platform last month.
And with both series so fresh in our mind, we pretty much know all of the characters like the back of our hands. But thanks to IMDB, we learned that seven of the actors all just so happened to appear on a separate series, Arrow (at different times).
Yup, Virgin River’s Colin Lawrence, Lynda Boyd, Sarah Dugdale, Teryl Rothery and Lexa Doigand and Manifest’s J.R. Ramirez and Melissa Roxburgh all had guest roles on the popular CW series.
Lawrence guest-starred in a 2013 episode as Paul Knox, while Boyd had a recurring role as Phaedra Nixon from 2015 to 2016 and Dugdale appeared on one episode as Becky in 2013. Ramirez played Ted ‘Wildcat’ Grant in 2014 and Roxburgh portrayed Blake for two episodes—one in 2011 and one in 2012. Doig starred as Talia al Ghul from 2017-2020. Teryl Rothery had the longest run on the show as Jean Loring from 2012 to 2020.
If you’re not familiar, Arrow is a retelling of the popular DC comic series, Green Arrow, and centers around billionaire playboy, Oliver Queen, who goes missing at sea and returns years later as a vigilante determined to clean up the city with his bow.
Now if only we could get one episode with all of these guys together.
