Prior to becoming a royal, Meghan Markle was best known for her role in US programme Suits. But the legal drama isn’t the only acting role Meghan’s showreel boasts – she’s also starred in a number of films.

The last movie the 37-year-old starred in was 2015’s crime thriller ‘Anti-Social’. In the film, she played the girlfriend of a street artist, played by British actor Gregg Sulkin.

The 26-year-old has spoken about his time acting alongside Meghan, during an interview on ‘Fair Game with Kristine Leahy’.

When asked what she was like before she married Prince Harry, Sulkin said: “Everybody does know her as a princess, but in real life, she genuinely is also like a princess.

“She is one of the classiest, the nicest, one of the most sincere and genuine people I’ve ever met.”

Sulkin, who is currently starring in Marvel’s TV series ‘Runaways’, also praised the duchess for the way she’s handled the scrutiny of the media in recent months.

He added: “I just think the way she’s handled it, obviously the press… it hasn’t been easy for her.

“I think she’s stuck to her guns, which is ‘when they go low, we go high’ sort of mentality and I think she’s done that and I think she’s been a class act.”

Meghan retired from her acting career in 2017, having worked on ‘Suits’ for six years.

Shortly after her engagement in November 2017, she also shut down all of her social media accounts and her lifestyle website The Tig.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are just weeks away from welcoming their first child and Meghan has no other public engagements scheduled.

She and husband Harry made an unannounced visit to New Zealand House on Tuesday to sign a book of condolence for the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.
