One of the most talked-about women in the world right now is soon-to-be royalty, Meghan Markle. Prior to being swept off her feet by the world’s most eligible bachelor Prince Harry in 2016, the 36-year-old actress found worldwide fame starring in the legal drama Suits.
As has been the case for so many actors and actresses, she had to take a few odd jobs prior to hitting the big time, and it’s now emerged that she starred in a Tostitos commercial back in 2009. Oddly enough, however, the voice in the ad is not Markle but someone else entirely.
“Thirteen ingredients? That’s more people than I invited to the party,” the voice says during the 32-second clip, as Markle stares vacantly around the store while holding a packet of unbranded chips. “Unless… Denise brings Gary. Ugh, Gary. Those short shorts.”
Markle then puts down the unbranded chips and picks up a packet of Tostitos instead because they contain a mere three ingredients.

Prior to starring in Suits from 2011 until 2018, Markle also had some other bizarre acting gigs and from 2006 to 2007, she was a briefcase model on the game show Deal or No Deal. In an interview with Esquire in 2013, she said she took the job to make “ends meet”.
Markle announced that she was retiring from acting in November 2017 when she announced her engagement to Prince Harry so that she can focus entirely on royal duties.
In an interview with the BBC, the humanitarian said, “I think what’s been really exciting – as we talk about this as the transition out of my career – is that the causes that have been very important to me, I can focus even more energy on.”
