Meghan Markle was an actress before she was royalty, and she faced normal challenges like anyone else, including car troubles and struggling to make ends meet. Markle landed her first role when she was 11 years old, and she appeared in smaller roles on shows like “CSI” and “General Hospital” before landing her biggest role on “Suits” in 2011.
Markle appeared in two Hallmark movies — 2014’s “When Sparks Fly” and 2016’s “Dater’s Handbook,” the latter of which saw her portraying a high-powered businesswoman who always picked the wrong men. In an interview with Hallmark Channel, she said she enjoyed the script of “Dater’s Handbook,” because “you have to follow your heart to find your true love.”
Markle’s “Dater’s Handbook” co-star Kristoffer Polaha spoke highly of her, saying, “Hallmark opened up the door for me to have those remarkable interactions with this incredible woman who has now married into the royal family and will no doubt change the world for the better.” Similarly, “When Sparks Fly” costume designer Tina Florida said Markle was “wonderful to work with.”
