Before she was living the royal life married to Prince Harry and before she was an actress with a leading role as Rachel Zane on Suits, it’s true: Meghan Markle was an struggling actress, doing what she could to pay the bills. Enter her brief stint on the game show Deal or No Deal hosted by Howie Mandel. During season two of the series, which aired in 2006, Markle had a very important job: Keeping tabs on briefcase #24 and revealing the hidden sum inside it should a contestant call her number out. (“I would end up standing up there forever in these terribly uncomfortable and inexpensive five-inch heels just waiting for someone to pick my number so I could go and sit down,” she once spilled in an interview, according to Business Insider.)
Still, work is work when you’re an actress looking for your big break. But what else do we know about Meghan Markle’s Deal or No Deal days? Quite a bit, actually.
