The former O.C. actress wrapped up warm in chilly Manhattan on Monday (13 January) as she visited the Sirius XM radio studios and then The Wendy Williams Show to talk about the new series of her comedy-drama.
Rachel stars as Dr Zoe Hart in Hart Of Dixie, which is about a New York-based doctor who moves to a small practice in Alabama. Its third series began in the US last night.
Chatting on Wendy Williams, she joked that the medical show had actually given her some real life education: "My stepdad had a tick, I knew exactly what he had to take, the prescription. They said, 'How do you know how to pronounce that?!' I said, 'Well, I'm experienced. I play a doctor!'"
Rachel also chatted about growing up with a sex therapist mum, saying: "It was very educational, but not when I wanted the education! It was a little awkward, for sure. Learning proper terms for things… She would talk to me about everything growing up. She'd slip it in and I'd do, 'Mum!' I still run away now at 32!"
The brunette was less open about long-time boyfriend Hayden Christensen, only saying that they were very much together and didn't feel any pressure to marry.
Rachel and Hayden met on the set of 2007's Jumper.
