Five Things You Didn’t Know about Melissa Roxburgh

Melissa Roxburgh is a Canadian actress who has shown up in a number of movies and TV shows. Currently, it is interesting to note that she had a main role on Valor, which is a new American drama that has started up on The CW.

Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Melissa Roxburgh:

Born in Vancouver, BC

Roxburgh was born in the city of Vancouver. Said city has the distinction of being the biggest city in the Canadian province of British Columbia, but it is important to note that it is not actually the provincial capital, which would be the city of Victoria. The confusion between the two is not helped by the fact that Victoria is situated on Vancouver Island, whereas Vancouver is actually situated on the North American mainland.

Debuted in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Franchise

In 2011, Roxburgh got her debut on the movie screen in a movie called Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. Given its name, it should come as no surprise to learn that it was the second movie in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise, which actually proved to be fairly successful by making more than $72 million at the box office on a $21 million budget. Afterwards, it is interesting to note that Roxburgh managed to get a more important role in the follow-up movie, which was called Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.

Was Going to Be in Supernatural: Bloodlines

There was going to be a Supernatural spinoff called Supernatural: Bloodlines, which would have focused on the conflicts between the hunters and the monsters in the city of Chicago. Unfortunately, said spinoff never happened because there was a lack of interest from The CW. It is interesting to note that Roxburgh would have played a werewolf character in the proposed spinoff. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that Supernatural is actually filmed in the Canadian province of British Columbia, which happens to have a thriving film industry centered around the city of Vancouver.

Starred in The Marine 4

In 2015, Roxburgh played a character named Olivia Tanis in The Marine 4: Moving Target, which is the latest in a rather long-running series of low-budget action movies. Despite the name, it is entertaining to note that the male lead of the movie is actually supposed to be a former Marine, whereas the female lead of the movie is supposed to be a whistleblower with information that there are traitors in one of the U.S. government’s biggest defense contractors. For what it is worth, Roxburgh’s character was actually said whistleblower.

Now on Valor

For those who are curious, Valor is an American drama centered around Captain Leland Gallo and other characters in the Special Operations community. As a result, most members of the main cast are connected to Special Operations in some manner, whether that means being a member of said community or related to them in some manner. In Roxburgh’s case, it is interesting to note that her character Thea is actually supposed to be a member of the CIA, which causes the character to stand out somewhat from the rest.
