Meghan Markle has always been laser focused on her goals.
In a new interview with Australia’s Gold Coast Bulletin, Lisa Gleave, who worked alongside the Duchess of Sussex as a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal, opened up about Meghan was like back in her game show days.
Gleave described Meghan as “quiet but very sweet,” and added, “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.”
Meghan has said more or less the same thing about her time on the hit game show.
“I would put that in the category of things I was doing while I was auditioning to try to make ends meet,” Meghan told Esquire in July 2013. “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.”
