AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle may make her big screen return with Tom Cruise after she officially steps down as a British royal at the end of the March. Rumor mill on the Internet has been speculating about the Duchess of Sussex's possible comeback to show business and the big action star is reportedly eager to recruit the "Suits" alum for one of his next movies.
An alleged tipster quoted in various reports says, "If anyone can get Meghan back on a film set, it's Tom. And what better way to get back on the big screen than starring opposite one of Hollywood's biggest stars." While details about the upcoming project are not available, the source says Tom wants to cast Meghan in "one of his next" films.
The news, however, should be taken with a grain of salt since it's not clear where the story originated from.
Meghan's last acting credit was a regular role on "Suits", on which she starred as Rachel Zane since the first season in 2011 until her exit in 2018, prior to marrying Prince Harry in May of the same year. Earlier this year, reports surfaced that her husband Harry helped her score a new voiceover deal at Disney.
The couple met the company CEO Bob Iger back in July 2019 at the London premiere of "The Lion King". In a video taken from their encounter at the event, Harry can be heard promoting the former actress' talents to Bob.
In the clip which circulated online, the 35-year-old prince seemingly said, "You know she does voiceovers?" Bob responded, "Oh really?" Harry remarked, "Did you know that? You seem surprised." He then gestured towards Meghan, who was deep in conversation with Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, and added, "She's really interested." Bob appeared to welcome the idea as he replied, "Sure. We'd love to try."
