After making audiences all over the world fall in love with her quick-witted, sharp-tongued but hilarious character Donna on “Suits,” it’s only natural that people become curious about what Meghan Markle’s co-star Sarah Rafferty is like in real life.

While starring as the former Chief Operating Officer of Specter Litt Wheeler Williams and the wife of Harvey Specter on the American legal drama television series Suits, she became good friends with the future Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

While Suits concluded on September 25, 2019, they are still good friends. According to Entertainment Tonight, Sarah Rafferty attended Meghan Markle’s 2019 baby shower celebration held in New York City.

“It [was] just very exciting,” Rafferty said about the event held at The Mark Hotel, a luxury hotel located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She also attended Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

Donna Roberta Paulsen is no lightweight character, so we reckon Sarah had to tap into her natural Donna to give the role justice.

Sarah revealed that, surprisingly, her real-life and on-screen personas are total opposites as she hit the season 5 premiere event for “Suits” in Los Angeles.

Sarah wore a classic black jumpsuit worthy of her snarky secretary alter ego’s image. The actress paired it with heavily-embellished sandals by Rene Caovilla.

So, once you’ve seen the bling on Sarah’s average size 8 (US) feet, the scarcity of jewelry elsewhere on her body makes perfect sense.

Sarah was able to keep the entire interview perky and interesting, even though it was a bit awkward.
