Meghan Markle lied to get a small part and SAG card
Editors note (21-July-2022): Meghan Markle: “I was such a Fraud”. In Tom Bower’s book, ‘Revenge’ he made the claim that Meghan Markle received her Screen Actors Guild (SAG) card after appearing in a bit part on General Hospital. Thomas Markle Sr. secured the role on the show, where he was the lighting director. He also paid for Markle’s SAG membership, it was claimed.
In 2015, Meghan Markle said, “I was such a fraud” and admitted she lied to casting directors to get a small part and her Screen Actors Guild (SAG) card. She joked that these casting directors wouldn’t hire her today. Committing fraud is one thing, but joking about it is malice. We added the original ATX video, which starts at 21:20. Markle said she was “such a fraud” and we should believe her.
Markle may have landed the role in Century City, but at what cost? Her one episode role in 2004 could have gone to a qualified SAG member, instead. SAG membership is a big deal if you are an actor. Because it can open doors.
We should never commit fraud in order to get ahead. For this reason, we consider Meghan Markle a bad role model. It is important to live with integrity then lie, cheat and steal. In this instance, Markle demonstrated that she could (1) lie (2) cheat her way to the top and (3) steal a role. We already knew she was a bad pet parent.
