Meghan Markle’s former co-star Wendell Pierce slams her and Harry for interview during pandemic

Suits actor takes swipe at Meghan Markle: Duchess’ former co-star Wendell Pierce slams her and Prince Harry for giving bombshell interview during deadly pandemic

  • Wendell Pierce, 57, criticised the Sussexes for giving interview during pandemic
  • Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-star played her character’s father for four years
  • He told LBC the interview was ‘insignificant’ compared to rising Covid death tolls

Meghan Markle’s former Suits co-star criticised the Sussexes yesterday for staging an interview while the world is in the ‘throes of death’.

Wendell Pierce, who worked with Meghan for four years in his role as her character’s father, said the broadcast was ‘insignificant’ as Covid death tolls continued to rise.

The 57-year-old told radio station LBC: ‘Today 3,000 people are going to die in America from Covid.

‘A couple of hundred people are going to die, even this hour, in the UK.’

Despite praising the former actress in the past, Pierce criticised Prince Harry and Meghan for the interview, saying it evoked Shakespeare’s phrase ‘full of sound and fury signifying nothing’.

The actor, who said he had not spoken to the duchess since 2019, added: ‘It was quite insensitive and offensive that we are all complicit in this sort of palace… gossip in the midst of so much death. I think it is insignificant.’

Asked who he included in this criticism, he said ‘everyone’ including Oprah, US network CBS, ITV, Prince Harry and Meghan, and the Palace. 

Pierce, who also starred in award-winning gangland drama The Wire, added that the monarchy should not get involved ‘in this sort of conversation’ and instead ‘focus on the throes of death that we’re in’.

The actor, from New Orleans, revealed he and Meghan had not talked much about race as they filmed Suits, despite the topic featuring in their roles.

He said: ‘We didn’t have long discussions about it, besides what was in the script and what was happening in our personal lives.’
