It's no secret that, before becoming a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle worked in the entertainment industry. And prior to landing her career-making role on Suits, Meghan spent some time as a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal.

In a new interview with Gold Coast Bulletin, fellow suitcase girl Lisa Gleave has opened up about what it was like costarring alongside the now-duchess on the game show. Describing Meghan as "quiet but very sweet," Gleave revealed, "I remember her being very focused on her acting career and her role as a briefcase beauty, as we were called, was just a stepping stone in her career. She only did a few seasons and then landed her role in Suits which took her away. I was so happy for her when I heard about the marriage."

Gleave's comments mirror what Meghan has said about her time on Deal or No Deal. In July 2013, the duchess told Esquire, "I would put that in the category of things I was doing while I was auditioning to try to make ends meet." She continued, "I went from working in the U.S. Embassy in Argentina to ending up on Deal. It's run the gamut. Definitely working on Deal or No Deal was a learning experience, and it helped me to understand what I would rather be doing. So if that's a way for me to gloss over that subject, then I will happily shift gears into something else."
