Suits stars Gina Torres, Rick Hoffman and Sarah Rafferty, guested on the Today show and opened up about when they first learned that Meghan Markle was dating Prince Harry. Here’s what they had to say.
Hoffman shared that ‘I got the news early, and I was like, ‘You have got to be kidding me.’ It was just us in the trailer, kind of like, ‘Oh! You are dating a prince?!’ You know, I was just like, ‘Take it slow, be careful – don’t let him hurt you.’’
Torres made it very clear that not only her but everyone on set were well aware that Markle’s love life should be kept under wraps.
‘We knew she was excited, and there was reason to keep it close to the vest,’ the actress said.
Rafferty then added that ‘We worked together for many years on a show. It was an amazing experience. We were with one another for longer than we went to college or to high school with our friends. We became family in a way – we are still family. So this is a wonderful family affair.’
Hoffman also shared an example of how close the almost-royal was with the other Suits cast members.
‘I was in a relationship that did not work out, and I had to go to a wedding in Paris. I was dateless, and Meghan was like, ‘Do you want me to come with you?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, that’d be awesome.’ We had the producer schedule our schedules off. Meghan and I had the best week.’
It is safe to say that her Suits family is super happy for Meghan.
‘I hope nothing but the best for her. This is a huge step in her life, and to bear witness to that is extraordinary,’ Torres said.
