Meghan Markle’s Rachel has been spending a fair amount of time on “Suits” planning her future with (fake) lawyer Mike Ross, but expect to see a return to her office spitfire ways as the USA show continues its third season.
“I think what is great about these episodes… is we are reintroduced to the Rachel that we met at the beginning of the series, where it’s like she was determined and had this prowess and this savvy about her work, that by her being in on Mike’s secret, and knowing the value that she holds in knowing that, she gets her sea legs back,” Meghan told AccessHollywood.com.
And, especially in the coming episodes, expect to see Rachel stepping beyond her Mike/Rachel love bubble.
“I get to work so much with Gina [Torres, who plays Jessica Pearson],” Meghan said. “It’s like Rachel, not even knocking on Jessica’s door, but just walking right in her office. Rachel becomes a very different person and the version of her that comes back is the one that I love, where she means business and she’s tough as nails and yeah, it’s really cool.”
Rachel in suits, not ironing Mike’s!
“Yeah, exactly. She’s not ironing his shirts, she’s like, ‘I am getting my own stuff together,’ and she really rediscovers her worth in the most attractive way and I think Jessica Pearson looks at her and realizes she’s a force to be reckoned with,” Meghan said.
“Suits” airs Thursdays at 9/8c on USA.
