Suits star gave brutally honest answer after being asked why Meghan Markle didn’t join cast at latest reunion

DAILY REPORT

Meghan Markle was clearly not up for getting another piece of pie with the lads.

Suits has been off the air since 2019, but remained as the most-watched series on Netflix last year.

The legal drama was watched for a total of 57.7 billion minutes, beating The Office‘s previous record of 57.1 billion, set in 2020.

And the show was originally shown on the USA Network and became available on Netflix shortly after, airing from 2011 to 2019.

For those unaware, the programme centres around college dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who begins working as a law associate for Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), despite never attending law school.

The all-star cast also includes Meghan Markle as Rachel Zane, Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson, Sarah Rafferty as Donna Paulsen and Rick Hoffman as Louis Litt.

Fans were delighted when the group reunited during the Golden Globes in January of this year, however, many noticed how the Duchess of Sussex wasn’t there.

During a chat with reporter Marc Malkin on the red carpet, Gina Torres said: “Well, when it all came through we were texting each other. Our text thread is insane right now, it’s exciting.”

The interviewer then pressed the actor about her former co-star Markle, who announced she would not be reprising her role of Rachel Zane shortly before revealing her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017.

Malkin asked: “Who texted Meghan and said ‘you’ve got to come to the Golden Globes!'”

Instead of fluffing up an answer, Torres was brutally honest about the reason behind the cast’s lack of communication with the Duchess of Sussex.

Just like her character Jessica Pearson, Torres didn’t mince her words.

She responded: “We don’t have her number. We just don’t.”

Adams and Macht were both presenting at the star-studded ceremony and were later joined on stage by Torres and Rafferty to deliver the award for Outstanding Drama Series, which HBO hit show Succession took home.

Despite Markle supposedly leaving the chat, Torres reassured Suits fans there was no animosity between them.

The Hannibal star, 55, added: “She’ll see, she’ll watch. She’ll be happy that we’re here.”

Adams, who played the smooth talking protagonist Mike Ross in Suits, also gave some insight into the cast’s texting habits while at the Golden Globes.

He said: “Mostly, I’m just trying to get Gabriel to respond. Honestly, he’s slow on the text and he has like six different numbers now because he lives in England.

“So, we’re just trying to find out which number works.”

Markle and husband Prince Harry also came up in conversation during Jo Koy’s controversial opening monologue, which has received mixed reviews.

He made a veiled jab at the ‘rich, white and dysfunctional’ Royal Family, before zoning in on the couple.

Koy told the crowd: “Succession has nine nominations. Just a great series about a rich, white, dysfunctional family, all scheming… oh, wait, that’s The Crown. I’m sorry.”

The comedian then took a swipe at the Sussexes about their pricey Netflix deal, saying: “Harry and Meghan Markle got paid millions for doing absolutely nothing. And that’s just by Netflix.”
