Meghan Markle has moved on to bigger and better things…
As you know, the Suits actress recently put down her acting hat to pursue her relationship with Prince Harry — but before she hopped the pond, the 36-year-old was on the shortlist to be the next Bond Girl in the upcoming 007 film Bond 25 featuring Daniel Craig, which will be released in 2019.
Unfortunately (depending on how you look at it), that possibility is no longer on the table.
A film insider revealed to The Sun:
“Meghan fits the role of a Bond girl perfectly. She’s glamorous and sexy and a good actress. The role more recently has gone to actresses deemed to be rising stars, and Meghan certainly was seen as that before her relationship with Harry became public. The brief was to find a glamorous rising star, specifically someone American or Canadian.”
The source went on:
“Producers had narrowed down her and four other actresses on a shortlist last year with Bond 25 in mind. But the minute her relationship to Harry came to light they assumed she was out of the running so it soon became a list of four. Her engagement effectively spelt an end to her acting career too so that was the final blow.”
What could have been! Something tells us Meghan will be just fine without this role…
