A Sweet Tribute To Meghan Markle's Acting Career: Remembering Her Most Notable Film And TV Roles
There is a lot about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's love story to entertain the people, but her huge personal sacrifice - hving to give up her acting career - deserves special attention.
Meghan Markle isn't quite like a modern-day Grace Kelly, who had managed to win an Oscar before acquiring royal status. Meghan's acting career ended before it even had a chance to kick off.
Although the newly-coined Duchess of Sussex is best known for her role as Rachel in the American juicy legal drama 'Suits', her career is about more than that.
What are her other roles, you'd ask? Well, here's a look at all her roles throughout her entire Hollywood career.
It was Meghan's on-screen debut, and it captured her as a still-college-student back in 2002. At the time, her father, Emmy-winning lighting director Thomas Markle, helped his daughter get the role as a nurse in the soap opera.
A Lot Like Love
Back in 2005, the future Duchess of Sussex sat between Kal Pennon and Ashton Kutcher during a flight scene in a romantic comedy, for which IMDB has credited her as 'Hot Girl.' That's the reason everyone wonders why she's leaving Hollywood.
Deal or No Deal
Back in 2006, Meghan Markle featured on the hit NBC game show. Though this role didn't show off her acting talents, it did provide her with some really good paycheck. According to Andrew Morton, thanks to the role as a briefcase girl, Meghan could make as much as $20, 000 per week. What a good start for a Hollywood Princess!
Sure enough, doing business in Hollywood is tough and challenging, that's why Meghan moved from the role of briefcase girl to a role on the CW's 90210 reboot, which included a car fellatio scene. Back in 2008, Meghan appeared in two episodes as Wendy, a girl who had a tryst with Ethan while he was dating someone else. The saucy scene featuring Meghan is a very surprising watch!
In 2010, Meghan played the role of a bartender in a famous Robert Pattinson movie. Worth to mention, her then-boyfriend, Trevor Engelson, served as the movie producer. At the time, Meghan had no clue he'd become her first husband.
In 2011, Meghan appeared in the comedy hit as a sweet FedEx girl. From one movie to another, she's changed to much!
It was in 2011 that Meghan's huge break finally came. The role of Rachel Zane in the record-breaking USA drama won her fans all over the world. In the series, Meghan featured as a strong-willed, successful, intelligent working woman, working hard at achieving her career and relationship goals. Fortunately, Rachel Zane achieves whatever she wants - just like Meghan.
When Sparks Fly
By 2014, Meghan Markle was playing in her very own Hallmark Channel movie in the role of a modern, big-city journalist who comes back to her hometown and sees her high school love through new eyes.
When Meghan Markle got her biggest audience ever at the royal wedding, all her acting achievements had finally been recognized, and it's just wonderful!
