Meghan Markle has played Rachel Zane on Suits for seven seasons, but before she was cast as the feisty paralegal-turned-law student on the USA series, the American actress had a wide-ranging career. From bit parts in films like Horrible Bosses and Remember Me to her time as a briefcase model on Deal or No Deal, here are a few of her most memorable roles.

1. Remember Me

While her part in the 2010's Remember Me was fairly small—she played a bartender named Megan—Markle clearly enjoyed her time on set the set of the film. When asked about what it was like to work with Robert Pattinson. "I filmed some scenes in New York with him for a small part," she said of the project. "He’s a really lovely guy and a really great example to be able to watch someone who is young, whose stardom has really taken over his life in such a huge way, and yet he’s still gracious, humble and cool. I think that is really endearing."

2. When Sparks Fly

In 2014, Hallmark expanded on their iconic Christmas programming with "When Sparks Fly," a made-for-television film centered around the Fourth of July. Markle starred in the movie as Amy Peterson, a journalist who was assigned a story about her hometown. When Amy heads home for the holiday, she (naturally) "discovers the life and love she left behind are exactly what she's been missing."

3. Anti-Social

Based on three real-life London jewelry heists, this British crime thriller features Markle in the role of Kristen, a model with romantic ties to Dee, a graffiti artist who is "bound by loyalty" to his brother, a thief caught in the middle of a gang war. Not long after Markle's relationship with Prince Harry was made public, a special edition of the film, which reportedly made Markle's role more prominent, was re-released.

4. Dater's Handbook

Another Hallmark original, Dater's Handbook stars Markle as Cass, a businesswoman who has it all—except a personal life. She turns to the self-help Dater's Handbook to help her choose between two men: one who checks all the boxes and the other who makes her laugh.

5. Deal or No Deal

6. Horrible Bosses


Markle made a brief cameo in the 2011 film Horrible Bosses as a Fed-Ex employee. During the 30-second scene, Jason Sudeikis tries to flirt with her character saying, "You’re too cute to be a FedEx girl. You’ve got to be an actress or a model or something."

7. Suits


Markle's best-known role by far is Rachel on Suits. The American actress has played the paralegal-turned-law student for seven seasons, though it's unclear at this point if she plans to renew her contract given her high-profile relationship with Prince Harry.
