Patrick J Adams addresses Rachel’s character arc in ‘Suits’ after Meghan Markle’s exit
Patrick J Adams says Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle may not be physically present in the upcoming finale season of “Suits” but the show will still honour her character. The actor, who starred opposite Markle in the hit legal drama, said the new installment will address their on-screen characters Mike and Rachel, who are happily married and settled in Seattle. “We’re (Rachel and Mike) happy.
I promise you they’re happy. For Mike, this is just a trip to New York. He’s in Seattle, they are building their life together, it sounds like he’s doing well. It seems to me like Mike’s in a great place. “Whatever is happening in Seattle is really good... There’s phone calls with Rachel saying, ‘Goodbye, I love you,’ and, you know, I think there’s some obvious acknowledgment that she’s still there and a part of the show,” Adams told Entertainment Tonight.
Post her engagement to Prince Harry, Markle quit the show in 2017 after wrapping its seventh season. Adams too left “Suits” in the same installment, with their characters getting married as a hat-tip to Markle and Prince Harry in the season finale.
