Is Meghan Markle set for a RETURN to acting? Suits creator’s new LA-based legal drama features character who appears to be tailor-made for Duchess of Sussex – sparking speculation he could lure her back to the small screen

The reunion of most of the Suits cast at the Golden Globes on Sunday has sparked excitement about the forthcoming LA-based spin-off show – and intrigue over a part in it which seems to have been written just for Meghan Markle.

Suits creator Aaron Korsh has scripted a new show about the life and loves of toilers in a Hollywood law firm and created a character, Erica, who appears tailor-made to be played by Meghan.

Erica is an African-American career-focused Californian girl in her 30s who is ‘smarter than everyone’ and enjoys an eventful personal life.

The Duchess of Sussex was Specter Litt paralegal Rachel Zane in the original show.

Some think that Korsh, who came to Meghan’s 2018 wedding to Prince Harry, may be trolling his former friend and associate with the character. Others believe that this is an attempt to entice Meghan back to acting, which would be a global coup.

However the Duchess of Sussex has repeatedly said that she doesn’t want to return to her acting career, and she played no part in the ‘Suits reunion’ on stage at the Golden Globes.

She’s got her eye on a portmanteau career as a philanthropist and entrepreneur and is expected to show up at the Beverly Hilton on Friday night to support Prince Harry who is being honored as a Living Legend of Aviation at an awards show there.

The new show is being made by NBC Universal and executive Beatrice Springborn said last year that it is ‘so fun and happy,’ and promised ‘the same energy and good-looking people that the original’ had.

Suits originally aired from 2011 to 2019 and starred Patrick J. Adams as the rising star of a New York Law firm.

He ended up marrying paralegal Rachel Zane, played by Markle.

Adams was among cast members who came to her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry but the friendship didn’t last.

He said in 2020: ‘After our children were born, there were some texts sent and gifts sent, but I guess I’m a little scared.

‘I think it’s pure fear. I guess I’m scared about the idea of breaking through whatever walls exist to have that conversation. Quite frankly, I think I’m intimidated. I have no doubt I could pick up the phone and call her at any moment, but I don’t know what I would say.’

Addressing Markle’s absence from the reunion at the Golden Globes, one-time friend Gina Torres revealed that they now don’t even have their former co-star’s phone number.

An interviewer asked: ‘Who texted Meghan and said “you’ve gotta come to the Golden Globes, Meghan Markle.”‘

Torres responded: ‘We don’t have her number. We just don’t so. She’ll see. She’ll watch. She’ll be happy that we’re here.’

Suits has won over a new legion of fans as of late after it became available for streaming on Netflix in 2023.

It became an unlikely hit of the summer after it was axed in 2019.

The Duchess’s last episode as Zane, a role she had been playing since 2010, aired in April 2018, a month before her wedding at Windsor Castle.

As for her husband, Prince Harry was seen earlier this week for the first time since the Daily Mail revealed the late Queen Elizabeth was distraught to learn about the royal couple’s claim that they had her blessing to name their daughter Lilibet.

The Duke of Sussex looked pensive in the brisk January weather of Santa Barbara, California, on Tuesday morning as he was spotted jogging in a black jacket and matching shorts, seemingly wearing a frowning, serious expression.

It came just days after Robert Hardman’s bombshell new biography revealed the late Queen’s anger over the claim in 2021 that she had given them her blessing to use her childhood nickname.

A member of Queen Elizabeth’s staff said she was ‘as angry as I’d ever seen her’ after Harry and Meghan publicly stated they would not have used her private family nickname if she had not been ‘supportive.’

The Queen was so upset that she told aides: ‘I don’t own the palaces, I don’t own the paintings, the only thing I own is my name. And now they’ve taken that.’
