Speaking directly to her followers on her Instagram Stories, she said: "When you've been at work for fourteen hours, you woke up at 4.45[am], you flew the day prior and woke up at 3.55[am], and came back to the Air BnB which had a burst pipe caution tape around the outside and no running water with unlocked doors when you walked into the home.

"And then had to get up the next day and work. So you took yourself to a hotel and said 'I'm not staying here tonight with no running water' and then you looked at the nine pages you had to memorise for the next day."

"I packed up all my stuff, I'm trying to get it out the door but I have, like, kids stuff, husband stuff, food stuff. I have so much stuff. I really just need to go to bed."

Season five is being filmed currently

It seems the actress hasn't had the smoothest time since she began filming in Vancouver for the fifth season of Virgin River. After arriving in Canada with her husband and children last month, the star took to social media to plead with her followers after the family realised their baggage had been stolen.

Fortunately, the authorities tracked down their belongings. Alexandra told her fans: "Ladies and gentlemen of Instagram. You're not gonna believe this. We got our bags back. I'm in shock." She continued: "The police in Vancouver [did an] incredible job, they followed the air tags, they  found the bags."
