Who is Mark Monroe in Virgin River?

Mark Monroe is Mel’s late husband who, before his death, was a talented doctor who worked in the Los Angeles ER with Mel and also a keen sailor.

During their marriage, which by all accounts was a happy one, he and Mel repeatedly attempted to get pregnant so they could start a family.

However, after the couple lost their stillborn daughter, they attempted IVF treatment but that also failed, leading to their marriage becoming increasingly strained.

After five failed attempts to conceive, Mel and Mark disagreed about whether they should continue their IVF treatment, with Mel wishing to continue despite the toll it was taking on her, which led to a heated argument between the pair.

How did Mark Monroe die in Virgin River?

Mark Monroe died in a car crash.

On the night of their argument, while driving home in a storm, Mel suggested that she and Mark should take a break from their marriage as she believed they wanted different things from their relationship.

During the argument, Mark took his eyes off the road and didn’t see the truck that was about to smash into the side of their car.

Mark was rushed to the hospital after the accident but his wounds proved to be fatal and he died with Mel at his side.

Mel felt enormously guilty about Mark’s death as she believed she was the cause and this led her to the decision to move to Virgin River and start again in the hopes of moving on – although even by season 4, this is an ongoing process.

Who plays Mark?

Taking on the role of Mark Monroe in Virgin River is Daniel Gillies.

The Canadian-New Zealand actor has been appearing on TV and cinema screens since the late 1990s with him appearing in over 30 roles throughout his career.

Fans will likely know the 46-year-old actor best from his time on The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off The Originals where he played the character Elijah Mikaelson between 2010 and 2018.

On top of that, Daniel Gillies also held prominent roles in the series Street Legal and Saving Hope while his biggest film role arguably came in 2004’s Spider-Man 2 when he appeared as John Jameson, the son of Daily Bugle editor J. Jonah Jameson.
