bdmetronews Desk ॥ Who could forget that Meghan Markle went from Deal or No Deal to duchess in record speed? The glow-up heard round the world just got a little bit more interesting because one of Meghan’s former model friends is speaking out about what she was like behind-the-scenes. The former Deal or No Deal briefcase model Lisa Gleave recently talked to the Gold Coast Bulletin about what it was really like to hang out with Meghan.
Lisa said that Meghan was “quiet but very sweet.” She also revealed that Meghan was dedicated to becoming an actress. “I remember her being very focused on her acting career and her role as a briefcase beauty, as we were called, was just a stepping stone in her career. She only did a few seasons and then landed her role in Suits which took her away. I was so happy for her when I heard about the marriage,” Lisa continued.
Before marrying Prince Harry and becoming a global sensation, Meghan worked on Deal or No Deal between 2006 and 2007. She then went on to play Rachel Zane on Suits for seven seasons. In 2013, she spoke to Esquire about her time on the game show.
“I would put that in the category of things I was doing while I was auditioning to try to make ends meet,” she admitted. “I went from working in the U.S. Embassy in Argentina to ending up on Deal. It’s run the gamut. Definitely working on Deal or No Deal was a learning experience, and it helped me to understand what I would rather be doing. So if that’s a way for me to gloss over that subject, then I will happily shift gears into something else.”
Meghan might want to leave her time on the game show in the past, but we’re still not over it.
