Actress Meghan Markle has no doubt come quickly onto the scene in spectacular fashion. Star of USA’s drama Suits, the beauty Markle easily lights up a set. Turns out, she’s also quite the foodie. With a love for all things hospitality, Markle chose ABC Kitchen for her shoot, and we tried to focus less on the lunch menu there, and more on chatting with her…
From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?
A Clean Cleanse vanilla shake blended with frozen Ontario blueberries for breakfast, a Niçoise salad and glass of rosé, with some Grey Owl goat cheese and baguette on the side for lunch, and a leisurely dinner of seafood and pasta, and a negroni to cap off the night.
What’s your drink?
God, do I love wine; a beautiful full red or a crisp white. But if it’s cocktails, I love a spicy tequila cocktail, negroni, or good scotch (neat).
What’s different about playing Rachel Zane from other parts you’ve played?
She is so intelligent, as well as being vulnerable, layered and strong-willed. I love finding the layers in Rachel, versus just playing a typical, one-note love interest type that is often written for young female characters.
In playing the part of the Rachel, where do you draw inspiration from?
I am inspired by the material the writers give us, as well as from the young ambitious women that I have as friends, that are looking for love, are in their twenties and figuring it out.
What’s the most shocking discovery you’ve made in all your time of playing that part?
That I am pretty good at memorizing lines. I used to think I was terrible at it, but when you film a show every day, you flex that muscle memory all the time, and I am shocked by how natural it has become for me. Thank God!
