Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has once again made headlines as she recently signed a deal with talent agency WME. But hold your horses, Suits fans, because Meghan is not returning to acting anytime soon. Instead, she is keen on focusing her efforts on her enterprise ventures, and her WME team will be composed of three heavyweights within the agency: Ari Emanuel, Brad Slater, and Jill Smoller.
The agency will be working on expanding Meghan’s business ventures across various platforms, including film and television production, brand partnerships, and overall business development. WME will also represent the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell, and Meghan will serve as the couple’s public face when it comes to their entertainment industry pursuits.
Mark Boardman, a well-known entertainment expert and founder of MarkMeets, expressed surprise as to why Prince Harry has not signed with WME as well. While it is possible that he has already signed but hasn’t announced it yet, he may have opted to pursue different career paths or may not want to be represented by the same agency as Meghan. However, Boardman did mention that Harry and Meghan previously stated that they plan to work together on various projects, so it’s likely that they will continue to collaborate in some capacity.
Meghan’s move suggests that she is once again interested in exploring new opportunities and expanding her visibility. Joining a top talent agency like WME could help her secure high-profile projects and rebuild her brand in the entertainment industry. It’s important to note that before her marriage, Meghan had a successful career as an actress, and signing with a talent agency is a logical step for someone who wishes to continue or enhance their career in the entertainment industry.
