LOS ANGELES. − Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has reportedly been offered “a bunch of roles” with “big-name directors and producers”.
The 42-year-old former actress is said to have turned down a number of acting offers she was allegedly sent due to a renewed interest in her former legal drama Suits, in which she played Rachel Zane from 2011 until 2018 – the same year she married into the British Royal Family and became Prince Harry’s wife.
Amid talks of Meghan now allegedly going after a Hollywood career again, a source told Life and Style:
“Suits is such a hit in reruns that Meghan’s being told there’s a demand from fans to see her act again. She’s excited.”
The insider went on: “She’d gotten a bunch of offers over the last five years but turned them down because she really was trying to embrace royal life and, later, forge a new path behind the scenes in Hollywood with Harry.
“But now that’s all changed. With other opportunities drying up, she’s actively looking for roles and talking to some big-name directors and producers. Harry is 100% supportive of all of it. Acting is what Meghan knows and what she’s always loved.”
Meghan is said to believe her 38-year-old royal husband could enter the acting field, though he’s said to be all about his philanthropy.
The source added: “She says he would be a good actor. But Harry believes he’d be ridiculed for it, so it’s unlikely he’d co-star in something with Meghan.
“You never know what the future holds, though. He might do it one day!”
The New York Post’s Page Six column previously reported Meghan has been in talks with a number of brands to work with on social media and is apparently especially keen to sign with jewellers Cartier as she “works towards the future after signing with Hollywood agency WME”.
An insider told the publication, “Meghan was set to go live on Insta but changed her mind shortly before she launched her Archetypes podcast, so it’s just sitting there now.”
Meghan revealed she was toying with the idea of returning to social media in an interview with The Cut in August 2022, saying: “Do you want to know a secret? I’m getting back . . . on Instagram.” – fbcnews.com
