Everyone’s busy congratulating Meryl Streep for her millionth Oscar nomination—and rightly so—but let’s not forget that she’s not the only one with a distinguished showbiz career. Two words: Meghan Markle.
Shortly after her engagement to Prince Harry was announced, the future duchess confirmed that she would be “transitioning out of” her acting career to focus on charitable projects. It’s a noble shift, sure, but also something of a blow to Suits fans and anyone who loves the Hallmark Channel (which is obviously everyone). And what’s the point of having a SAG membership if you can’t even play yourself in the Lifetime TV movie about your relationship?
Much has been made of Meghan leaving Suits (her character Rachel Zane is expected to depart by the end of Season 7), but her royal retirement also means she’s turning her back on a film career that’s run the gamut from quickie cameo to rom-com leading lady. It’s a mixed bag, which is why we’ve compiled this completely subjective ranking of her film work from worst to best, based on our personal levels of enjoyment. Let the Meghan Markle movie marathons commence.
Note: Meghan’s IMDB page includes 2010’s Get Him to the Greek in the uncredited role of Tatiana. We’ve left the comedy off this list because her appearance is so obscure that it’s impossible to find and, thus, judge. One thing we do know: Despite reports to the contrary, she’s not the dancer who kisses Russell Brand in a London party scene.
