For most people, a starring role on a USA drama would be more than enough to consider yourself a success. For Meghan Markle, though, her role as Rachel Zane on “Suits” was just the beginning. After leaving the show almost two years ago, she’s become one of the most famous women on the planet thanks to her marriage to Prince Harry.
And, since she stepped back from her duties as a royal, she has been looking for other opportunities to capitalize on her fame.
Apparently, one of those opportunities actually came as a result of her former employer. In fact, “Suits” reportedly offered the royal $5 million to appear on the show for just five seconds. The offer didn’t actually come from USA.
Instead, it came from a German cosmetics and Botox company called Biotulin. The company claims that Meghan is one of the biggest and most high-profile fans of their anti-wrinkle gel. Biotulin actually made the offer in a tweet to NBCUniversal chairman Steve Burke.
“Att. Steve Burke: We are again offering you 5 million $ for a 5 sec. appearance of Meghan Markle with our biological Botox gel BIOTULIN in your TV series Suits,” the company tweeted. “Pls. check our offer with her agent.”
The $5 million appearance would be literally $1 million per second of screen time, so it’s hard to tell how serious Biotulin is being here. Whether they’d actually pay the money or not, it seems like Meghan’s return to “Suits” is pretty unlikely.
One thing that makes it particularly tricky is the fact that “Suits” is no longer actually on the air. The show ended its run in 2019, and the show’s spin-off series “Pearson” only ran for a single season before being canceled.
Even before the show ended, the team behind “Suits” seemed to understand that Meghan’s return was incredibly unlikely. After all, she has far more pressing matters consuming her time now that she’s married to a man who’s sixth in line for the throne.
While Meghan’s return to “Suits” in particular may be unlikely, there are reports suggesting that she’s looking to make a return to the world of acting more generally. She has agreed to do some voiceover work for Disney already, and there is already a rumor going around that she’s looking to become a superhero as well.
Whether that opportunity actually comes to fruition remains to be seen, but it seems like Meghan is eager to dive back into the world of acting.
