"I was classically trained, I came up in the theatre, I studied at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, so I learned to play inside of all the genres."

Zibby continued: "Even if we're doing a drama we're very playful on Virgin River, even in the heavy scenes, you know? When we break, when they call cut, there's lots of laughter. So I miss comedy, I'd love to go back to comedy at some point."

The Mel Monroe actress posted the video to her Instagram which showed just her feet as she walked around the set from different markers on the floor, which demonstrated where she was supposed to move to while filming the scene.

The video didn't have a caption, but many fans flooded the comments thanking her for the content. One person commented: "My excitement level is super high!! Can't wait to see what happens in season four after that heart stopping cliffhanger!! Love this BTS video!!"
