Alexandra Breckenridge says after her seductive role in “American Horror Story,” she got hit on by some very well-known actors.
“I had some really interesting people try to ask me out after that,” Breckenridge told The Post.
Not surprisingly, she declined to name names, but did drop a couple of hints.
“Gothy types,” she revealed. “Let’s put it that way.”
When we suggested Jared Leto, the Connecticut-born actress laughed and said it wasn’t him — but did mention that on a scale of one to 10, at least two of the anonymous thespians were 10s.
“There are three particular people who went through people I knew,” she detailed. “One went through my agent and said, ‘Oh I want to work with her on a project,’ and it was very much so not that.”
“‘I was like, ‘Just tell him I have a boyfriend,’ and they were like, ‘We told him that, he’s not interested in that, blah blah blah.’ So I said, ‘OK I’ll meet with him.’ And then I met with him and then he starts texting me and I was like, ‘Oh God, no, no, no.’”
“AHS” isn’t the only high-profile show the 38-year-old actress has appeared in. She also played Jessie Anderson in “The Walking Dead” and Kevin’s ex-wife in “This Is Us.”
Breckenridge can currently be seen in the soapy Netflix smash “Virgin River,” in which she plays a midwife and nurse practitioner who moves to a remote California town to start anew. Naturally, she meets a brooding bar owner (Martin Henderson) who has his own complicated past.
The mother of two admits that initially she did not have high hopes for the show’s success.
“I kept telling Martin Henderson that nobody was going to watch the show,” she said. “It’s not based necessarily on the content of the show. When you watch Netflix, there are so many shows, right? There are so many shows that end up in the Netflix graveyard and [I thought,] surely ‘Virgin River’ is going to end up in the Netflix graveyard because so many shows do. So I kept telling him [during filming] the first season nobody is going to be watching.”
Thankfully, Breckenridge was way off but thinks that the series came out at a perfect time.
“I think a lot of people want to watch something cozy that you don’t have to think about much. The show does touch upon a lot of personal emotions, loss, PTSD but it’s not saying anything political. You don’t have to wrap your head around it,” she explained.
