Today, June 11, Meghan Markle made an appearance at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas for a Suits panel where the cast did a table read of the pilot script to commemorate the upcoming 100th episode of Suits.
After the table read of the pilot script, the cast did a short Q&A. I’ve transcribed Meghan’s answers below to the three questions she answered.
On if the table read brought back memories of shooting the pilot: “Well, it’s funny, I was saying, we had that group email the other day and I was saying, um, we had all lived in the same corporate housing, so on top of working together we were all living together which makes a whole different dynamic, I think, we just became this little family right out of the gate.”
On having a favorite Rachel/Donna scene: “Oh, I mean, Michelle Ross and Harriet Specter, it was the best, when they go to the bar and they take on these different personas and we, you know, we just sort of played around with that again recently. Um, no it’s great, all the scenes are good, and what was the one we were in the bathroom scene with the brush on my nose… Oh dear, no it’s like that little Bewitched twitch, right, where it’s like [twitches nose], like you’re nose [touches nose], that was fun.”
On season 7 reset and Rachel becoming a lawyer: “Oh, I mean, of course, I’m so, I’m so happy that, especially reading, reading the pilot again you get to see where she started, even saying, you know, talking about Harvey Specter and saying but I don’t really know him or work with him, and to watch the progression. She’s worked so hard, and I love that, as a role model, how she’s been crafted to balance it all, but yeah, now have this place at the firm where she really knows her standing and her office isn’t just because she’s a good researcher, it’s because she’s an associate. She’s really earned that spot.”
I’ve never seen Suits, so I keep being surprised by Meghan’s voice all of the two times I’ve actually heard her speak. She’s more soft-spoken than the other cast members and kind of got lost a bit when they were speaking during the Q&A – she didn’t interject as much as they did, and had to be prompted to answer that third question. I don’t know if she was purposefully trying not to say much because of the media spotlight on her because of her relationship or if that’s just her personality.
You can watch the entire script read and Q&A in the video below, and there are more photos at the Daily Mail.
Meghan wore a Club Monaco Sinthea Dress which retails for $329.00. The dress has a red French toile print on a structured bodice and pleated skirt with a sweetheart neckline and shoulder straps. The dress is very summery and looks good on Meghan, although, you know me, I dislike floral prints personally.
