Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-star Patrick J. Adams has revealed that she ‘made fun’ of him after seeing him naked on stage over a decade ago.
The former on-screen couple was filming the first season of the USA legal drama in 2011 when Markle, 40, watched Adams, 40, perform in the Los Angeles production of Bill Cain’s play 9 Circles, which features full-frontal male nudity.
‘She certainly was at the play where I was naked and she had a good time making fun of me after,’ he told Entertainment Tonight, joking: ‘So, maybe she’d like a repeat performance.’

Next month, Adams is making his Broadway debut in a revival of Take Me Out, which will once again require him to get naked on stage for the Tony Award-winning play’s infamous nude scenes.
The opening was delayed nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the actor plans on extending an invite to his old friend.
‘I would love for Meghan to come and enjoy the show,’ he said. ‘I’ll send her an invite for sure.’
The Duchess of Sussex played the paralegal-turned-lawyer Rachel Zane on the first seven seasons of Suits until she retired from acting ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

When she left the show, writers had Rachel and her husband Mike Ross — played by Adams — move to Seattle to start their own law offices.
Markle and Adams have remained longtime friends, and he attended the royal wedding with his now-wife Troian Bellisario, with whom he shares daughters Aurora, three, and Elliot, two.
His children are nearly the same ages as Markle’s son, Archie, two, and daughter, Lilibet, eight months.

In October 2020, a few months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Santa Barbara, California, Adams told ET that they have remained in touch over the years.
‘We’ve texted a few times. We both started families at roughly the same time, obviously her family has been a relatively high-profile one, but I’m super happy to have her back on this side of the water,’ he said.
Adams added that he would ‘love’ to plan a play date with Archie and his daughter Aurora, though it’s unclear if they ever did.
‘I leave that in Meghan’s court,’ he said. ‘She’s incredibly busy, so hopefully time will allow, but I’m proud of everything they’re doing. I think it’s pretty great.’
