Who is Jeb on Virgin River? Meet actor Sandy Robson

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Virgin River. 

The long-awaited season five premiere of Virgin River finally landed on Netflix, and many fans have already binged through the episodes.

As viewers returned to the fictional Californian town, things picked up from the finale with Jack Sheridan (played by Martin Henderson) reeling from Charmaine Roberts’ (Lauren Hammersley) lying to him about fathering her twins.

Despite the betrayal, this season Jack had bigger fish to fry with threats of massive wildfires ripping through the town and the possibility of fentanyl ruining lives.

Following the death of kingpin Calvin (David Cubitt), Jack’s former friend Brady (Ben Hollingsworth) was asked to step up, which led to the unfortunate demise of a loved one.

Among the return of old flames and new love interests, viewers were introduced to a number of new faces and learned more about their beloved locals.

Who plays Jeb in Virgin River?

Most of the main cast returned including Sheridan, Alexandra Breckenridge as his fiancée Mel Monroe, Tim Matheson the local doctor Doc Mullins, and Annette O’Toole’s Hope McCrea as town mayor.

Fans also saw more from the expansive community as Sandy Robson reprised his recurring role as Jeb.

He was first introduced in season one under concerning circumstances after he and his wife Pauline (Holly Elissa) rushed their daughter Annabelle (Áine Sunderland) in to see Doc.

After her asthma took a turn for the worse, Mel noticed Jeb didn’t look well either and revealed their symptoms were the result of a poisoning.

Despite only having one appearance in season four, Jeb found himself in some major trouble in season five.

With Calvin dead, Brady was taking orders from the drug ring mastermind and killer Melissa Montgomery (Barbara Pollard), who forced him to help run fentanyl through the lumber yard.

She was able to do so by threatening the well-being of his girlfriend Brie Sheridan (Zibby Allen) who also happens to be Jack’s sister.

Melissa then forced Brady to enlist Jeb in the crew and while Brady tried to warn him off, Jeb wanted the extra money for his family.

However, things took a drastically dark turn when Brady visited the lumber yard later only to find Jeb dead.

It was later revealed Jeb accidentally overdosed on fentanyl as the locals attended his funeral in episode three titled Calculated Risk.

As well as starring in Virgin River, the Candian actor has an impressive CV with appearances in The Twilight Zone, Riverdale, and The Good Doctor.

Robson made his major directing debut in 2015 with the Sci-fi thriller Skyquake, a movie he also wrote and starred in as Adam.

Virgin River seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Netflix.
